that isnt the best way to get 320hp out of an M3. you'd easily spend over $10k in parts just for the complete swap, not including labor. you could come extremely close to those numbers with some head and internal work on your existing engine, ive seen people get around 285rwhp with a US S50. Then there's also various FI kits that could match or beat the power of a euro motor for less money. sells used 3.2L S50B32 euro motors for $8k (i think they occasionally have some 6speed tranny's for sale also)

and has a 6speed kit for around $4200

why not do a little headwork, cam swap and a supercharger? Then you'll be pushing way more 285 rwhp.
