I'm going to listen to all your advice everyone. I'm set on going boost for sure, now whether that's an m20 or m50 I'm not sure yet. I'm trying to get my civic on the road so I can daily that while the bimmer sits in the garage. It will probably be a few weeks before I can start the swap since I need to find a job and make some money.
For now though I'm gonna pull the m20 out. What are your opinions? I could rebuild the m20 and go boost... Or swap to m50 then boost later on. Im leaning towards the m20 route, even the option of finding an m20 for sale cheap with lower miles and working on that.
