My freinds 328is EURO M3 swap vs. 330ci supercharged
 
Ran several times off the line. Actually 7 to be precise. 5 races counted and the EURO took 4 of them. The one the EURO lost was a result of a shitty start. They did a highway run and the 330ci blown beat him just by a bit. I mean by a bumper. The EURO was catching him but the 330ci car has problems. Car shuts off at 219km/h. If they had kept going the EURO would have won. They also did a rolling start and the EURO won again. All motor is the way to go !!! This thing pulls strong. The launchs is where it all took place. The EURO had the jump all the time then no one could pull on eachother. The 330ci dynod his car at 286hp to the wheels and 262 ft/lbs torque. The EURO wants to dyno next. They where having a battle for a while. My buddy in the EURO had a US spec M3 with OBD1 before and the 330ci blown took him. So he took the title from him. Well this time the EURO M3 won so he took back the title that belonged to him. Now the 330ci is frantically search for more things to do. Software, injectors etc. LOL EURO is the champ. Though I would share. Enjoy

If you don't mind me asking (ballpark) how much did the euro swap cost him for his 328is?? Also did he put in a 6 speed or a 5 speed? Sounds like some sweet ass cars in some nice race action!

I think it cost him something like $12,000 canadian but it included the 6 speed tranny and driveshaft as well. He also has the 3.15 LSD in his car

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the U.S Spec M3 3.0L, and the Euro Spec M3 3.2L? I thought thats how you could differentiate between the two.

You cant tell between the bore of the motor. Thats interal you can see it. The only give away is the US spec has one throttle boby where the EURO's have 6 individual ones


There are 3.0L and 3.2L US spec motors and 3.0L and 3.2L EURO motors

The U.S. spec 3.0 makes 225hp and the US spec 3.2 makes 240hp depending on the year

the EUROS are total different ball game. They have individual throttle bodies (6) and the 3.0L EURO makes 286hp and the 3.2L EURO makes 321hp. Hope this helps

Jazz it is the 3.2L

P.S. below is a pic of a EURO motor. If the motor dosent look like this then its not EURO
