luckycat is an unknown quantity at this point
Great little ride! My understanding is that the 323i had the 2.7 six with an actual distrubuter instead of the Motronic computer?? If you want an increase in performance, would'nt at pepped-up 2.5 be a good choice? I have concerns about the heavier 3.5 compromising the little guys cornering geometry.
Just a thought....Good luck, what ever you do keep us posted!

There are 3 common positions for the M30 in the E30, I'm sure it's about the same for the E21. If it's in the farthest back position, I don't think that it affects the weight distribution/balance very much. Obviously it will be heavier, but the position may mitigate some of the weight issue.
Like I said, this has been pretty well documented for E30's, I'm sure that E21's can't be very far off.
