There's been many posts about this. As a rule of thumb, if you hvae to ask what is needed it is best to just go to a mechanic and give them a blank check and expect to pay them more than what you payed for your car.

Cheapest and easiest way to go would be to use a s50 out of the 95 m3.

There's no cheap or "easy" way. Also, by the fact you used words like "iono" and alluding to the rest of your grammar i'd assume you're young, possibly nieve, and either lacking the funds or don't have enough motivation to complete the project.

Sorry, i'm a dick.

You are new so I will be nice in saying this. At least every other new member on these forums seems to ask about this question. We simply get tired of typing the same thing over and over again and nothing ever comes of it. I can honestly not think of one new person here that has ever seriously started to do an engine swap that had to ask for the sort of general information that you are asking for.

If you have the money to do it, go to a reputable BMW shop in your area and tell them what you want to do. Then wait a few months and expect to pay them in excess of.... I'd guess around six thousand dollars. If you want to do it yourself, buy a beater car because you will need at least 6 months to complete the swap. If you really want some help, start the project, (taking the motor/tranny out etc etc) and take some pictures along the way. I promise you if you start it, you will get help. Then you can post all of the pictures and step by step instructions and they will be read by every e36 noobie out there and all will sing praises to your name.

But lets face it, you prolly just thought it would be cool and are never ever really going to do it.

edit: the lest you could do if you are serious is read through the 16 pages of posts about this. BMW Forum - BimmerWerkz.com - Search Results Then ask whatever informed questions you want.

Ask a real question that couldn't be answered by the 16 pages of search results on this exact topic that thekid has posted and then i'd be willign to help you out. Asking general questions like "How do I put an M Power motor" in my 325 and then pretending like you actually know what you're doing is very hard to believe. Which motor do you want to put in? An s50b30? An s52b32? s50b32? Sir, if you were serious you would've gone into more detail than saying I want an M3 motor. Be honest and think how many new members join a forum and say "I want to turbo my car, what do I need?" It's absurd.

And you should probably have gone through my profile t realize i'm neither old, nor rich. Just 21, broke, college student, work full time. Now who's stereotyping?

Ask a more detailed question please.
