So I've been looking into getting a m3 motor for quite sometime and I'm about to buy one with all components to do the swap. Total in labor it's going to cost me about 3gs. Now from my stock motor, I'm putting out 190 (give or take a few). The m3 motor from a 97 puts out 240Horses. That's 50 more then what I currently have. If I shell out 1-2gs more I can get a supercharger which will add 90-100 horse to the wheels which to me seems like a better idea. Another issue though, my motor has 150k miles on it but is still pretty strong.
Another idea I had was to do a obd2 to 1 swap using my old motor for parts but I'm not sure if that'll work on a m3? any suggestions?
My ideal thing to do would be to get this m3 motor and then supercharge but lets be realastic, I'm don't make THAT much money to shell out 10gs on power.
If you guys were me, what would you do. The motor will cost 2200, labor to put it in is 600 from my mechanic.

see that's the thing though... after the motor I'd have to spend another 2-3gs on stuff lol :P like obviously, I'd shark it and intake it and what not but what else could I do to make the m3 motor faster?
