Hi,

Ok, so I've decided that my motor and tranny will be sold.... looking to do the S38 or S54 conversion... got a GOOD lead on the S38 motor, so mine must go...

motor,tranny, ECU, wiring harness... sold all together... may part out , however, motor and tranny have to go first..

serious offers only.. pics on request. you must know what this motor is worth... if you think you know... think harder, then a bit more, then make the offer...

email me

E30 M3 Without the S14 in it is worthless.

yes and no Robb...

the way I see it, to do the S14 2,5L conversion... either turner or vac.... you are looking at $8K + usd... parts alone... I can get an S38 for a 1/4 of that price.... and the S38 swaps are 311 BHP stock.... if I get the $$, then I am doing it.. if not, then it stays... the motor pulls hard and the tranny shifts nice and smooth...so it's not really a rush..

Ant118... thanks for the props man... !

plus a lot of people that I spoken to have experienced a lot of valve slap with 2,5L motors for dialy drivers.....

plus forgot that the above post does not inlcude labour pricing, nor does it inlcude CF valve cover and intake plenumn with Alpha N.... soooooo push that figure up another $4K.. so now we are getting into the teens!

cause then its really bad man. In a E30 M3 it atleast has to be a Bmw Motor. Who care's about an E36 M3 or a E30 non-M. The M's are just getting rarer and rarer.

nah, i didn't mean it like it's the most important thing in the world.

i hate nascar, and i am just being objective about engine - forget german,american and all your beautiful associations for a sec. It wouldn't matter when you are in the seat behind wheel now would it?

Choose One,
350HP+ a shit load of torque vs ~300 With 260lbs of torque?

If i had an e30 m3 that needs a motor i will not think twice to do an LS1 Swap.

But S38's are Badass motors as well and if u got a good lead go for it. Go for it, jst let me take it for a ride after its done :)

Jst to piss u off. I got a full write up on the swap ;)
