and i did say its ideal for a small engined BMW (eg. 318is) Otherwise its better to FI the original engine.
It said $17k in the subtitles of the video.
And once again I still don't think that $17k to have an e36 M3 on stock suspension with 400hp is a good performance/$ ratio. The conversion isn't that easy either the video even says that they had to make custom motor mounts and do a bunch of wiring, but because they've done it once and figured it out they would be able to do it again in a day. If you wanted to do it your self it would be a lot more tedious than if you were to swap an S5x motor into your e36 with a turbo kit and some nice suspension and brakes.
