It won't last but maybe 100K. It will be fast, but it will have an early death.

AMG can't build an NA engine that can compete with M engines, so they stick in a supercharger and say their cars are faster. BMW could simply do the same, but they don't out of principle.</span>

it would be great for straight line power. Wouldn't handle very well, and all the torque would shake a the car to death.

My opinion - 5.0 in E30 = no good

Why can't a 5.0 ENGINE turn?
I always thought that the body dynamics and suspension were the important factors? Since the 5.0 will be inheriting an E30's body and suspension, as long as they sort out the front suspension to compensate for the bigger engine, there should be no problems, right?

Fast 6, the engine in your pic is a Mercruiser (Chevy block V8) which is a marine engine. Most often coupled to so called out drives, those strange looking almost out board drive speed boats

better than any BMW engine he could put in there... yeah.

1. No, there are plenty of BMW engines that are better. (pretty much anything with an S designation)
2. If you want cheap power, buy a 5.0 mustang and use the motor in that car.

What basis do you have for saying the car wouldn't handle well? It's the chassis that makes the car go around corners, not the engine.

Let us not forget that iron block BMW engines are by no means light weight.

that may be true but the suspension on said car is set to handle well with the weight of car and 302 is way bigger and heavyier then a m20.

Whataver, the 302 isn't that big.. Ironically the new 4.7's weigh more, and are monstrously bloated in comparison.

Pushrods > OHC imo.
Kind of like the LS6.
Most efficient motor to date. ASE journal's got the BSFC #'s to back it up. Highest power output per quantity of gasoline of any production motor. Not to bad for one cam, and 2 valves per cyl
