captain cheak my post with the link at the very bottom. It tells you the engine type and what year they were produced. aslo u can see HP@RPM and Torque lb/ft@RPM. Make sure u only look at the ones for the US or All cause i dont think u would want a car from europe, italy, or africa lol.
the general term for all E30 engines are ETA's.
starting in 88-991 they changed it engine layout a little, they were then general called Super ETA's.
All E30's have 6 cylinders EXCEPT the M3 which as only 4. But dont be fulled cause the M3 is hella better. It had duel cams which the others dont.
EDIT: the 318i which was produced in the US only had 4 cylinders..dont even consider that car
The I/IS have lot more alot more power than the E/ES. the E simply are low RPM's (4,000) and the I/IS is like (5800). Now with chips u can bost the rmps up for both of them a little about 5,200 and 6,000. Around there.
the E/ES have alot more torqe than the I/IS but dont be fulled cause the E/ES are killed when it comes to HP (look at the chart and see)
The most common E30 of corse are the 325 e/es/i/is. Now u can find a couple other models. Im not to sure about those but just make sure cause i know there is at least one of these that is simply slow!
You can get a engine upgrade. If u have a regular ETA u can always put a Super ETA in. I have herd of ppl putting s14 (M3) egines in here car also. And then there is the M50 ( i think) Which is the regual engine used for the E36 ( 1992-1998) BMW's. But dont forget that u can always go Turbo or supercharge!
