Haha, you're really having the need for speed eh? That's cool bro :D

Anyways I think the cost to do such a transplanet will probably cost ya, let alone a S54 engine is pretty $$$

I'm not even sure if someone has done it before, but I'm guessing wiring it up might be painful?

Much easier to do a S52 or M52 transplant.

there is way more work involved...i dont even think you can put the S54 into the E36! why would you anyway? for the same price you can prob get a M50 or M52 M3 motor and s/c it. Plus you need to be really careful with the S54 motor...break in especially...

Yeah, haha make sure the motor works when you get a used S54, in case the mofo sold you a broken faulty engine for a couple thousand :P

You don't want to install it, then turning on your E30 Hybrid S54 engine, having to find out that there's a crazy ticking noise. hehe

well, if its impossible to put an S54 into a newer car with more technology, its not going to be easier in an older car with LESS technology! and the engine is like maxed out..its like the s2000 motor..the most i've seen for the E46 M3 is like the ehxaust, and intake..just go with the M50..its fast enough man, you dont need an M3 motor...but what you do need is a license, like me! shouldnt you have yours? licenses in the states is like 15yrs old

Here we go again with the dreaming.:rolleyes:

You know what... it is practically impossible.

It will physically fit in the car (I know that) but it would cost you about $100,000 to get it running. No more silly questions please.

e30_325_s52, stop dreaming, you don't even have e30 yet, buyt you already want engine that will cost you a fortune. And yes everything can fit, but for the price I'd rather get a brand new m3.
anyway get e30 first, it will have enough speed for a while.
