Hey guys, as you all know I have a 328is. Well, my next mod to go for is cams, but cams+install are going to run me about 2.3 grand. So I thought about it, and if for twice that I can swap an m3 motor (euro spec would be nice), that'd be a much better investment. Plus I'd already have the exhast and intake for it, putting me right below 250bhp.
Anyone know anyone whose done an m3 motor swap? Anyone know a good place to FIND an m3 motor for sale? The only ones on Ebay were going for 6k+. Any help would be appreciated =)
Awesome site, thanks! Looks like I can get a performance (20% more hp/torque than a stock m3 motor, so we are looking at about 288hp) 95-95m3 motor for a little under 7 grand with the upgraded clutch (while I'll need). Install quotes? Grand and a half?
You going for a manual tranny to go with this? If I'm not mistaken, I thought you had an auto...You are on the road to a lot of fun here...
