would it be possible to put in a 95' m3 engine in my 4 bangin 318is...
Yes it would but you might be better off selling your car and buying a 95 ///m3 if you wanna save on the engine and labor costs. IF you can install the engine and components yourself that's a different story.

yea, if you can afford the engine. But if you can find a Euro M3 engine, that would be serious power!

but no money f0r the 95 m3 itself...and i was thinking the engine in a lighter car...
what L337 was saying is that it would probably be cheaper to just buy a 95 M3. a project like that could easily go over $10k. the engine itself could cost you anywhere from 3-6k, plus you'd have to rework the entire exhaust system, get a new ECU, and probably new springs and dampners to even out the extra weight in the front. then theres a ton of labor involved which could run you $60-75/hr.

Would he also need to replace the tranny? I wouldn't think a 318 tranny would mate well (if at all) with an M3 engine.

You should really consider getting the M3 instead, even if money is an option. As it would all balacne out in th end. Plus there is a bunch of things you could do to lighten the M3. Remove spare, carpetting, swap parts out for CF parts, etc.

P.S. - or do like Donut did in his ///Mx6 and remove all the seats, interior, and the wheels. His car moves like greased lightening now. I saw him beat two Vipers and a Lambo. No really.

2 options:
1. get a turbo kit or s/c kit, boost the crap out of your motor
2. get a car with a bigger motor.
i agree with Trigger on this

AA turbo or downing atlanta supercharger
or just get the euro M3 engine
