Bad engine to chose for performance + reliability + cheap cost.
Its expensive in almost every regard, and uses very old technology. Its for all intents and purposes two m20 engines mated together, including 2 engine harnesses and 2 ecu's. The bmw i-6 such as the m50/m52 etc is a better engine.. smaller, lighter, less complex, and if you turbo it it'll make more hp, more reliably.
Honestly, I'd put an m50 engine in my car if I had the funds available for such a swap. Its a downgrade in many peoples eyes, but I just love i-6 engines.
Dual harnesses and ECUs? Yikes! It's not sooo much about performance, but something "interesting." But it can't cost an arm and a leg and it needs to be vaguely reliable so this ain't sounding too inviting. . . As for I6s, I'm all about the 2JZGTE, which is about the gnarliest I6 platform ever. There's a million ways to go a prices ranging from not too bad on up.
Mmm, a little disappointing.
Actually, the s50 heads flow better then the 2jz does. Its a myth that the 2jz makes more power. There are just more people who tend to buy supras tend to throw more $ for high hp numbers, whereas most bmw owners are happy to "just" have 300-600 usable hp.
