With enough money, anything is possible. My favourite swap is probably the corvette engine into a 318ti.



1999 E39 540i/6-VF Stage 1 S/C, Dinan exhaust, Dinan strut+shock braces, Dinan ltwt flywheel + clutch, Dinan Brembo BBK, Dinan monoball, H&R Springs, Koni Yellows, M5 sways, Dinan forged 18" wheels, &c.

1995 E38 740i. Highly modded. Faster than you.

Sold 2-28-07: 1997 E36 M3/4, 8-30-05 RIP 1997 528i

Check bimmerworld.com for decent engine prices. Add another grand or two for other stuff.

Oh gag me, why put an unreliable chevrogay motor in a BMW? The ultimate swap would be the 760li DOHC V12 in a e30.

im looking to either do a 300zx, 350 small block, or M3 motor swap, but i just gotta figure out which on will be easy on the wallet but will also get me my 14-13 sec 1/4 mile times

A fresh M20 with a T-3/T-4 turbo topped of with a tuned mega-squirt injection system, good tires and good clutch, you'll be there no prob. Depending on how good of a wrench you are you can do that for around $3500. Considering you'll have about that much in a motor, adpters, fabrication, man hours and parts doing a swap, a turbo M20 may just do what you are looking for all along.

14-13sec?

I rember reading somewhere that the stock 325i sedan in 87 would do 14.5 in the 1/4
if you want fast, use the 325i Engine(M25 i beleve?) and an M3 Rearend...
and supporting mods ofcourse but i still dont see the point of Turbocharging our cars...

Cars Currently Owned:
1987 Mazda RX-7 GXL(My Baby... Dream Car)
1987 BMW 325i Sedan(Stock and Balls Fast... Family Beater for now)
1990 Geo Storm GSi(dont laugh... 1.6l I4 130Hp DOHC)
1987 GMC Seirra 1500 4x4(workhorse, and For Sale too)

350 chevy.... talk about ghetto-fabulous. You are going to find "throwing the 350 in" isn't all that easy. Pluss trying to find an adpter for the transmission isn't going to be cheap or easy.

Here are just a few turbo e30 cars, there are many more.

Street Cars
9.678 @ 147.80 MPH Saku Ritola - E30 Turbo
10.829 @ 133.96 MPH Thomas Billman - E30 M20 Turbo
10.989 @ 133.00 MPH Andreas Arthursson - E30 M50 Turbo
11.852 @ 118.25 MPH Donovan Citizen (BMW sob) - E30 Turbo
11.886 @ 113.76 MPH Jim Citizen (BimmerJim) - E30 M20 Turbo, Nitrous

Personally I think a turbo e30 under 12 sec makes its own point.
