BUSA is an unknown quantity at this point
Hello all. I figured i would join the forums because i love BMW's and i love my BMW.

I bought a 1982 BMW 320i. I know quite a bit about these cars because my dad has always driven one since i was born and he works for BMW. So i figured this would be a good starting point.

I decided i wanted more from the car so i tore the thing apart.

I put in 1979 320i pistons, con rods, and crank in to make it a true 2.0liter engine.
Then i custom built a turbo kit for the car. Right now she looks pretty stock and i may keep it that way but she shure does have power.

Im lookin to get an E30 some time soon or maby even a E36. But im not sure what i want. If i do get the E30 it will have an extensive engine swap (E46 M3 engine in an E30 )

So hello E21 lovers

actually it has never been sucsessfully done. I believe it cannot be accomplished. Theres far to many sesors, posistions, alarms, and whatnot for the s54 engine to run. Cant be done. The closest thing you can do is a euro s52 swap.

Welcome to bmw-forums!

good luck with the s54 swap, even though a built s52 can come very close to the s54's stock crank numbers for a fraction of the cost. ive seen a s54 in a mini cooper but not a e30, so whatever you do, keep us posted
