Yes the Shrick Cams are the only cams that I know avaiable for upgrade and they are pricey....

And 2dr tails are more like a rectangle
4dr are more like a square...

Sry, but easiest way to describe them...

thanks that helps for the tails any idea about heads???? cams are really sucking my butthole dry...for the price of the cam i could build my own turbo kit. but ive read more positives about all motor then forced induction. my take seems that they just dont really like high boost which im addicted to...uhg to many wants and not enough money...thanks though for the help.

Am pretty sure headlights are the same for both 2dr and 4dr but am not 100% Sure.

And I wouldn't mess with a Turbo unless if you plan to do it right from the start and first getting your engine ready to be able to handle the boost

our cars can take 400 hp with stock internals. But My suggestion is that you drive around in a 318 for a few minutes then hop in your M. Theres your 100 hp boost right there haha

how else can you get to 400hp without forced induction? I have seen a totally stock internal 328 handle boost that turned out 450 hp in the dyno..the vid is on ICSPerformance.com..

Cams are just not cheap for an e36 M3, sorry. But take a look here, www.turnermotorspot.com

As far as body differences, the 4 door version tail lights (like Rooz said) are not as lengthy and look a bit mroe like a square compared to the rectangular types for the coupe.

The front turn signals are different. I cant really recall the difference but the 4 door and 2 door front corners are not interchangable.

Also another difference between the coupe and sedan is that the coupe, has 2 doors, and the sedan, has 4 doors. Go figure!

And as far as boost goes, i'd stay away from it for awhile. The engines just arent meant for high boost at all. I think your car's compression ratio is like 12.1:1 or somethign ridiculously high. Try and stick to bolt ons and other addons for the time being. Reliability will take a downhill spin also with boost, and since you are sucked dry for money I think it's smart to stay away for a bit.

Good Luck!
