If searching didn't find you much, you may be headed for a custom job. That's no small deal.

Possable... I dont think for anywhere near 2k though....You could try and find a kit made for the 328i(ODBII). It might not be a perfect fit, but I think the 2.8 in the 3 and the 5 are the same(99%sure). You might just have alittle custom fitting to do. But a do it your self , if you know of a good tuning shop would be the way to go. You'd be looking at 8500 or so, if you drop compression with a Head Gasket rather then pistons, with a TEC3, add about 1000 bucks if you wanna drop compression with lower compression pistons.

thats all i could find...

1991 Ford Taurs SHO 5 Speed White on Tan
1996 Chevy Lumina LTZ Rep 3.4L
1992 318i Coupe parts car
1992 325i Ls1 swap with a T56 6 speed 12.2 quarter mile
1976 Mercedes Benz 300D with a Ford 5.0L Fuel Injected soon to be Modded
