are the 6cylenders in the e21's called m20?
if so, could i just put a bigger capacity m20 in?
i don't think there m20's but i could be wrong maybe the m20 has parts from those past engines

eta is a 2.7 liter engine, revs really low and almost feels like a diesel in the way and ammount of torque it produces. its a fun "around town" zippy engine because of all the low down torque it produces. the eta is also a very good base for improvement if you have a little wallet and imagination. That, and replace the con-rod bolts and check all the bearings. Then, go wring the hell out of it and enjoy. =)
