yep it can be done! Not sure of the price or what else needs to be changed but I know you can do it. Hell you can put an M5 engine or even the V12 if you want to.

What about an E36 M3 engine into an E36 328is? I would figure that the swap would be easy, with no/few modifications needed. (I saw a rebuilt e36 M3 engine, ported and polished, for sale for around 8Gs with no core deposit. I drooled a little bit)

yea, basically all you need is money. I know a couple companies have shoe horned the V12 in there. It will probably be the easiest to get an M3 engine in there, probably the easiest on the ol' wallet as well.

One of the tech guys here at BMW of murray(in slc,utah) has done the M5 engine a couple times into a E46.

We have an E36 M3 engine (Euro specs) resting at one of our suppliers with less than 60K miles on it at around $ 6.750 shipped all the way to your door.(shipping done by sea, duration some 4-5 weeks)

But it should be do-able to make engine swaps, you might have to do some modifications to other parts than the actual engine.

I've heard of some guys putting in the Supra tt engine in their 3-Series, cause they are both I6's. But then it's not really a BMW anymore, is it?

a M5 engine would be way to expensive to install cuz it doesnt have a traditional throttle. its all electronic and sounds impossible to do, but ive seen a M5 engine in E30, so i guess anythings possible
