yes an LSx would be best but the 5.0 motor is much more affordable, with aluminum heads the motor weighs pretty much the same as an M52, and as it sits closer to the center of the car balance is just as good or better for handling.

the is a 380hp 5.0 mildly built, for $800, say $1000 for the other parts you need for the swap, that,s alot of bang for buck!!

Dan's E36 with the LS6 is a pure monster, and handles great, and the white E36 with the 5.0 thats been out at autoslalom a couple times is pretty crazy
