I have an opportunity to pick up a set of used S50 cams for a few hundred. I know I will need the upgraded conforti chip, but is there anything else I would need to complete the swap?

I want the S50 engint swap, but for like $250 I could get just the cams.. I talked to a few shops tho and they said it would be assinine to do just the cams. So i am now discouraged from doing this.. Besides I test drove a 2000 328CI last night and I swear my 93 325i is quite faster.. So I should be happy right!?...I think I'll try some pullies next instead.

pullies suck...the cams will put your car at about 200+bhp

well usually the e46's feel slower because their heavier and more smog equipment and their mostly auto's
