Please, all pics of this nature need to be posted in the lounge with a NWS heading.

At least its only an e30. The person did it because it was probably cheaper than a BMW engine.

I don't know much about Honda's or what motor that is in that picture. However, I've heard of a handful of people swapping S2000 motors into E36's. Although I'm not too fond of Honda's high revving engines, the S2000 should make a mediocore motor for the heavyweight E36, why bother?

Hard to believe. Because S2000 engine is way high revving and strung for a heavy BMW. Differential alone would kill it. Second they are quite expensive too acquire too. I am not calling you a liar, it is just that it dosen't make sense to me.

Altezza's on a BMW don't make sense either, yet people have them.

I know someone who has an S14 motor (E30 M3) in an E36 chassis. The whole conversion costs more than swapping in an E36 M3 motor yet it doens't produce much power. Again, it's expensive and really not worth the conversion at all. Why do you people do it? To be unique and for bragging rights.

S2000 motors aren't that hard to find. They are expensive, but only because they are still relatively new cars. Compared to a new BMW motor they are cheap.

Isn't the whole point of an engine swap to get more power? Why would you put an e30 M3 4 cyl engine in an e36?

Because 4 cyl motors make great racing cars. The person who swapped the S14 motor swapped it into his E36 318. So in fact it did increase his cars power while maintaining the weight.

If you followed the BTCC from '94+ you'd see that the S14 (E30M3), S42 (E36318) and 320 were all used in BTCC championship races, they were also all E36 chassis. There's more to making a car faster than just engine power. Power to weight ratio is very important as well.

Anyways, as I explained above it's mostly for bragging rights and just for the sake of being unique. Doing something that no one has done before earns you respect. To some people that's more important than just going fast. Retrofitting is an art.
