Ive only seen one for sale online and they were asking low 30s for it with a little over 100k miles, that was a while ago though.
Makes sense though, because some of the e34 M5s go all the way up into the high 20s.
Im pretty sure it owuld outperform the e34 M5, because its the 208hp engine with two turbos, so im sure its over the 310 hp mark that the M of the same year puts out. Not to mention the other performance mods that it came with...
You would probably need to start with low compression Mahle Pistions, since the B10 has 7.2:1, you need stronger Con-rods, an intercooler, the ecu needs a hot chip that has anti detonation software on it. Another cam would be needed, but I don't know what kind.
I have been looking on theinternet for these as well, but haven't been able to find any.
BTW, has anybody seen any E24 B7, even an E28 B7 would be cool.
Hope that helps.
