with what you got done, it would be benifical to trade out your pistons and head, with one out of an E21 320. It is a direct bolt on. I have been in one where these were the only things done, and i was a huge difference compared to the 318 i was driving at the time. Now i just realized that you said you have the DOHC, so that may not work. Maybe someone else can elaborate on the for me.

* After doing a lot of research I have not seen any E30's on the track with engine swaps that could beat the modified M20's and the strokers (3.0l).
You can get plenty of power out of that 3.0l stroker for a lot less than converting to a M30.* 300hp is possible out of the 3.0l with other things but still NA.
