I totally agree that different motors make cool different projects, but from a strictly $$/hp standpoint, the m10 would be very low on my list, meaning it would take alot of $$ for moderate horsepower. I would love to hear about a budget m10 ($5000 or less) that can make 250hp
all i have to say is - let me know when another free m10 comes your way

1984 318i w/M10 - restomod in progress :-)
1984 325e - in car heaven now :-(
1991 325i - project / parts car
2005 325i executive edition - daily driver :-)
