Guys; Looking into a 91 318is with 160K km on it, black with tan 5spd for $3000 CAN, drives nice but SLOW (missing 2 additional cylinders ;-)). Just wanted to know what the future potential is for this car. Not interested in just blower or turbo, wanted to know if the 318 requires the same amount of work to put a E36 engine as it would for a to put the the E36 in a E30 325? Sorry, a little ignorent here.

Thanks
Shane

Or just the motor, since 318is cars are lighter.

318is > 325is in many ways. Go for it and enjoy the handling, no point trying to make a 14 year old car a dragster, it has plenty of power for the curves.
