if you want a V8 swap that's a diff. story, but just a mustang 5.0 in a bimmer.... doesn't sound like a good idea....

Might want to consider doing an M5 engine swap....

It would be the cheapest 5.0 engine you could put in a BMW. As the saying goes, anything is possible if you have enough money...

It would probably greatly upset the weight balance of the car.

I would not be so sure of disrupting the weight balance. The LS1 kit offers a very good weight balance, and I believe it is very close to 50/50.

there are no "mustang 5.0 engine kits" for the e36 because no one wants that motor in their e36. you are both correct about the ls1. http://www.vorshlag.com/E36ProjectBook.asp
