I just recently aquired a '84 318i from a bmw enthusist. He currently has no time for the 318 so I baught it off of him for 500 bucks. I recently restored a 88 325i for a customer and fell in love with Bmws. So this, by far, was a good move. I was just wondering who here runs off the m10 engine and why? I would just like to know what people feel about the m10 and is it worth keeping or swapping.

It all depends on what your needs and wants are.

Are you looking for something fast, or are you looking to get good gas mileage?

Something fast....moneys not a proboem nor is fabrication prosess or any shop work for that matter. Id like to keep the m10 and change the head and run a forced air setup on it.

If you want something fast and money is not a problem, then you should consider an s52 (3.2L) motor swap with s50 (obd1) management.

Is there a reason why? I was thinking about using Korman to build my engine out since they are less than 5 minutes away. Plus I tend to go the hard route on my cars and make things out of nothing. Im just curious as to why I'd go with the s52.
