I have a e36 318i 5peed. Would a turbo kit from a e21 fit?

I was about to say that ...... "he alreayd has an e36 engine.."...

Any ways... you could probably use the turbo itself... but non of the piping.. and or other components... as they would be rare to fit. You would have to buy all of your oil lines.. and such... it would take some fabricating.. but it could be done... with enough money.. if you are extremly set on having a turbo on your car... you would probably spend less money just buying a turbo upgrade kit for your car specifically.

Turbos are bad... and I wouldnt suggest installing one on any BMW.. as they were not built for it. More air... equals... more power... which equals... a degradation of moving parts due to stress.

Your car though... Good Luck!
