iv never heard of it being done. you will have to do a lot of custom cutting and welding to get everything to fit, where you could just do a couple mods for less money and hassle (turbos, etc) to the stock engine and still put out 500hp. i guess you would have a unique car if you did do it, but it just seems like an unneccessary effort
messing with and trying to adapt the massive amounts of electronics and sensors in a e46 would be a nightmare too...
I'd hardly call it senseless. I suppose if 333hp is enough for YOU, then a stock m3 is the perfect car for YOU. I asked for answers, not opinions.
I think the idea of it being senseless is why cut up a Car that is engineered perfectly for that specific motor to fit so it HANDLES. like a BMW ... If you wanna get mass horsepower then why don't you put the LS1 in a geo metro and leave the M be the perfect peice of engineering that it is... but if you must..
Look at Horsepower Freaks turbo kits.. From most of the videos they post it seems that their cars are streetable but stupid fast when you want them to be .. Its all about how much money you want to spend.. And if you bought an E46 M3 and are thinking about cutting it up and putting an LS1 in it then obviously that isn't an issue.
