So you couldn't afford an M5 because of your budget, however you would be able to spring for an M5 motor and trans? I can't tell you how much you would find these for outside of a dealer but I can tell you that the M5 shortblock used to cost ~$10-11,000 (dealer cost). Factor in a tranny (~ 5k or so), maybe a custom driveshaft, heavier suspension pieces (added weight) and all of the necessary hardware and misc. pieces plus labor... you'll be spending at very minimal $20-23,000. That's if everything even fits. Get yourself a supercharger and DME programming. It's much cheaper, reliable and will add a respectable amount of power. Then save up some money and later on do some head work and cam swap.
