Or you could get a used engine that would probably work from the junkyard.
$400? Max?

Kinda how BMW put GM transmissions in BMW's from the factory?

I say that it seems to sound like too much trouble, but you should be able to do it. If you do it, be sure to be ready for a lot of custom work. This is not something you do for the final outcome, but rather for the enjoyment of the process.

I don't know anything about the Chevy 350, nor do I feel like Googleing it, but I would recommend that you do a little research in terms of dimensions, weight, mounting, etc.

If I had to guess, I'd say that even if you got the Chevy 350 for free, it would be more economical to simply get a BMW replacement engine from a junkyard
