Thumbs up

Coming from the world of Volkswagen where just about every motor fits in any model with varying difficulty... are there any options for 325 owners out there? I read a while back that some guys manage to fit a late 80's M5 engine... but what about E36-based motors? ...or any other series motors for that matter?

I mean, how sick would an E30 325i be with a N/A E36 M3 engine on ITB's be?

Sure that may be a streatch, but I am seriously looking for options here. I have the ability to purchase a 325 with a good body, but with a warn motor. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I see dumb people...

Everything you mentioned there has been done, and then some. This board is just slow. My car is a 87 325is with a 95 M50 single vanos with 95 M3 cams and a TMS custom chip for this combo.

You might want to consider www.r3vlimited.com www.roadfly.org www.dtmpower.com or www.e30.de
