Hello everyone! New guy in town starting on new project car. Got a 1982 320i restoring for my son. Been sitting 6 or 7 years. I have motor out to rebuild or replace. Anybody had any luck sticking a late model engine in older vehicle? I would definitely like to upgrade the injection system and horsepower. Thanks, Phil

there should be few problems fitting an M20B25 engine from a 325i e30, which produces 170hp at pretty much the same mileage than the engine you have. Btw your car is an e21 and your engine is either the 2.0 liter M10 4-cyl engine or the 2.0 liter M20 engine with 120hp and 6 cyls
yeah I'd take the M42 from the e30 318is putting out 136 hp

@Dave: what do you mean with "the only way i know of to get a FI 4 cylinder of BMW manufacture"? The M10B18 and M40 4-pots were also fuel injected? :dunno
