yes you can stick a m3 engine in a 318is. and u can also stick a m3 engine in a e30 325i/is/e if you want. you shouldnt have to do much modding. but you need a m3 tranny, drive shaft, and differntal. and the new s54(e46 m3) engine will not fit into e36 chassies.

no many people from dtmpower.net have tried and were unsuccessful

Hate to be a downer, but if I have to ask how much it will cost I probably don't want to know. . . . .

So how much (roughly) to turn my e30 325i into an e30 M3?

Plus how much sense could it make to put an M3 engine in 96 328is, put the the 328is engine in 89 325i. All dreams. Warm fuzzy dreams.

Which M3 engine were you referring to in specific?

Anything can be done with enough time and money... :p

This is something I have seen many times. Where I live in Tampa, FL there are a few. Jared, a friend of mine has a white 318 TI with a E36 M3 motor and a nice T66 turbo. There's also another guy we know with an E30 with an E36 M3 motor.

All it takes is time and money..

Hey people, I'm new here, and I was looking to put an M3 e36 engine into a 318is
a friend of mine said it'd be too much trouble, that I'd have to replace my whole dashboard (wtf?), steering wheel (into an m3 one) and many electrical things

is this true? I know electronics and engine go hand in hand, but to replace the dashboard? that sounds odd just to put an engine that fits the chassis

Naw. The motor will physically fit without much fuss. You would need to run a 320i brake booster though to clear the motor.

The main reason people have been unsuccessful doing an S54 swap is because the S54's engine electronics are very fussy and it would be extremely hard getting the motor and chassis to cooperate.
