Hey, guys. I started looking at the 3 Series lately, because I am tired of my fwd 4 cylinder Prelude. I'm looking at purchasing a 325is. I was just wondering what kind of potential these engines have. I want to run a turbo set up and make about 300 whp, on a stock bottom end. Is that possible? Maybe later on, when I have some more money to waste ill throw in the I6 from the M3, and I was just wondering how hard that swap is. Alright, that's about it, thanks.

Hmmm... I am just wondering if you know how expensive BMW's are to own/mod? Since you are talking about a 325IS you are talking about making mods that will easily cost more than the current blue book value of the car, and maybe double that or more to" throw in an M3 motor" This marque unfortunatley does not readily lend itself to making engine swaps of the likes of american iron or japanese stuff. Engines and parts are off the chart expensive, and the skilled labor to do the work is also slightly to right of the cost of a highly skilled brain surgeon. Just wanted you to know what you were looking at beofre you got in.

www.aatuning.com check out the turbo there for 8000 but they have a supercharger for 4800 that puts it to 240 some HP and is way better than turbo, dont hurt your engine, and all that good stuff plus you can install yourself with some knowledge of cars!
