I think it could fit, but the money you're going to spend making it fit and work might be equal to the cost of the engine itself. Unless you have a good mechanic as a hook-up.

no it wont work ... its not like doing the m50 swap in fact its nothing at all like it because you cant do it. the only car that engine will work in is an e36 m3 unfortunatly

it is ALMOST impossible....anything is possible with ENOUGH MONEY, but, there is way way tooo much wiring/technology involved in this engine....it would be a huge mess and very very very very costly....and also very very very costly...i have thought of it too...and have also got my dreams shot down....

hmmmmm, well why would it ONLY fit an E36 M3?!
That sounds odd, and why wouldn't it fit, i mean i'm pretty sure you have to change it over to OBD I and i know if i put it in my car it probably won't have the same POWER as a REAL M3, and i understand i'd need to get a whole new REAR end pretty much (differential, transmission, clutch, ETC. ETC.!!) but it would still be cheaper than getting a NEW M3 and think about the ORIGINALITY!!
But how reliable are these engines anyways?!

I think the bid will end up at $7000 grand US. Solomatic do you think it really is worth buying pal. Once you convert the US over to Canadian dollar (assuming it sells at 7000 grand US) your looking at $12000 canadian then put the taxes on top when it crosses the border. Then add the cost of a new clutch, diff, tranny plus labour to install which will be mega coin. You probably be in the $20000 range if not more. Now is it really worth it ??? *no-no*

Think about it, i know how much it'd cost, i cannot afford THAT much, but it WOULD be worth it, think about it, you'd be the FIRST (as far as i know) to have an S 54 in an E36, AND it'd be %100 SLEEPER!
why WOULDN'T it be worth it, you can make it a LOT quicker than a REAL M3, at half the cost, and i KNOW you can make just about ANY car faster than an M3 at HALF the cost, but this is NA and THATS tough to do, a friggen 6cyl. 3L with 300+ hp, and an 8g redline, YA, YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT!

Bro trust me I am with you on this 100%. It would be a total sleeper for sure and one hell of a bullet but its the coin upfront you have to drop that hurts the most. After that is taken car of the grins will be difficult to peel off your face !!!!!!!*love*

TRUE< but think about how many people drop that kinda cash on SKIRTS RIMS and all that, i know guys that have spent a LOT of cash on LOOKS alone, but it would still be worth having the FIRST (KNOWN) S 54 E36!!!
MY OPINION!

I agree brother but those people that drop $20000 grand for skirts and rims have more money than brains !!! Just my opinion. I would rather do a heart transplant to my ride then to dress it up if I had that money right now !!!!!

No you CAN NOT swap this in any E36. Few in the states on DTM have tried and failed miserably
