I've seen pictures of an E30 from canada (now in germany) that had a V12 implanted into it. I'm not sure what the details were on the install though, but I imagine it must have been pretty difficult because the engine is pretty big.

For the same power output, you're better off putting the money towards a euro-m3 motor, and turbocharging it.

V12.. original and thumps up to the one who have fit it in a E30... but it's way too heavy for a 3serire... L6 are the best! with a supercharged or turbo for handsome power

racing dynamics used to manufacture one and sell it ... the hurricane i think it was called or maybe typhoon. it was an e36 318ti with the v12 and all of racing dynamics parts on it.

Yeah, it was the Hurricane. I'd love to have that car. 425hp and 405ft-lbs of torque', 0-100km/h in 4.2 seconds*mw*

I heard that car was not very well balanced and had too much torque than the chassy could handle
