What you need to do is get a 325i motor and put the head, intake manifold, and fuel injection system on your "e" block which would turn it into a 2.7 "i" motor. Do a search for the conversion cause it is a very popular thing to do to the "e" motors.

2: full "i" engine whif my transmisson if is possible or a new trasmission if is not ($$$)
3: I dont change my engine and just put a chips, intake and Headers....
