Gearbox is the easiest part afaik. You can use one from any M50 with an adapter plate like this -

Having a custom sump and oil pump is a more significant pain - no other option if you want to be able to shut the bonnet. I did quite a bit of investigation into it and decided it was way too much hassle.
I will take a look at that thank you for your help and advice

I'm not sure if I will go ahead with doing it as sump has to be changed and pump so will take some time but will be worth it at the end!!

You'll find lots of threads on forums from people who've started this swap, but very few where it's been completed. Only real ones I've seen complete are the drift lads who are happy to have the engine sitting high with the bonnet not able to shut.

It's total nightmare
If you can't do all job your self even don't start
Sump modifications,exhaust header,wiring job
There no correct info in internet just some bits and pieces you can find
And if you looking for help in Internet than I 100% sure you can't finish project like this
