You are looking at cars and not engines matey.... Go for an M52 engine - Straight six 2.8 ... Drop it in and maybe your next issue might be the prop matching lol - Change the flange if you need to...
Get a better rear diff too!!
Ooops maybe a gearbox too...

hey, can you email me firstname.lastname@example.org, im a complete noob into modding my 1996 318i i want to put a M52 engine with a straight 6 what will i need to do that myself??
You will need a complete M52 engine, the DME from said engine, and the wiring harness from said engine.
Now, the transmissions used for the 318 and the 328 were different because the blocks were different. You *may* need to swap out the transmission as well. If you got both the VIN from your car, and the VIN from the donor car I could pull the factory build sheet and see what transmission came in which car.
