Well, a very good friend of mine crashed his M5, but the engine was still intact, het got his money back from insurance and I bought the engine for a steal, that's how it happened

How much work has had to go into the engine bay to accommodate that engine? also, do you know how much heavier it's gonna be over the old engine?

Very nice mod!! Same province here! Did you also made pics from the rebuilt, while they worked on the car (like a DIY)? I don't have the 325 anymore, now I drive an '96 M3 (pics), so that's the reason they ask for a race

What about brakes and suspension?? Standard (318) or replaced too?

I'm curious for the pics btw!

Well, keeping the brakes of the 318is would be suicide, that's why they are replaced by 2 m3 brakes in the rear and 2 porsche brakes at the front
The engine bay had to be revised, and the suspension was replaced by that of a M3.
Now they are modifying the hood (Making it more like an e46 hood) because it BARELY closes.
When you accelerate or brake the engine will actually dent the hood, so it's getting more height.
I could unfortunately not make "work in progress" pictures, because I have been busy with school and work lately, and the shop is Half an hour away (in germany).
Think I am gonna give 'em a call tomorrow.
