Spiff mentioned a 2.7i conversion on a different thread and it sounded interesting. Ive been looking around and people say it would bring horsepower and torque to around 200. So now I am wondering what parts are needed for this conversion and the costs involved.

Ive read different sources...all say you need an "i" cam but after that people seem to have their own opinions on what u need...info from dif sources dont match

So I hope someone has some good sources on this

this sounds like something worth doing...hopefully if it doesnt cost too much I could be doing it to my car next summer

i have been trying to work this swap myself for quite some time....the problem i ran into was not the lack of info it was the conflicts in info...the main problem i have found is that the 2.7 crank cannot handle the revs of the "i" head...im to a point now where i am about to give up on this conversion...the car at strictly eta's website seems to have a pretty good setup...i just wanna know what kind of numbers hes pushin now...

from what i have read from other sites...they say the super eta is the easiest of all the eta's to do the 2.7i conversion because its build with more "i" parts than teh regular eta...is this true?

and the info on the strictly eta site is for a 2.8lt...which from all the mods listed seems like a lot of work and money went into converting his 86 325e

Some of the Super Eta's valvetrain parts were taken from the M20B25.
I don't know what.
