Only thing I have seen converted like that was older American v8's.

This worked because the distance was so short between the crank gear and the cam gear that an idler could be inserted in place of the chain. The bmw motors have a loooong distance to travel from the crank to the cams. I cant picture a gear drive setup. It would look like a crazy clockwork deal to do it I would think.

I may not have the right idea of what your talking about though.
