You make no sense. Slow down and try again, please. I'm sure some one will be able to help you.

'84 318i - 101hp

The e21 has no rev limiter on the engine. You could take it to 9k and back if you wished to do such a thing. Although, I'm not sure about the auto tranny.

whats the designation for the e36 318? m54? I dunno whatever that is. That is an awesome engine to drop into the 320 body.


Besides 320s are sexy.


Props to TurboM3g

May his car rest in peace where ever it be.

The E36 came with either the M42 DISA or the M44 '96 on.

Same here I'd go with the 318i, Even though i owned a 320i with a Flat 4. But the thing that attracts me is the light wieght w/ the body of the e30 and basically because its a 5 speed :-p
