E36 one day conversion to 400bhp...some may hate this!!!

I would defo like this if i had a small engined E36. Cheap and easy conversion with tons of potential.

$17k. You gotta be kidding. You can install a high end turbo system for half that (in about a day as well if you buy a kit) and it will make 400+hp easily.

who said 17K?
You can get the full conversion kit for 3k and then add an engine. 17k is fitted with all the work done by a shop. That is not bad.
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.

Yeah I wouldn't do this swap for 17k. Would do S52 swap (3500) and nice turbo (6k) so for 9500 you have a monster of a machine, didn't have to mess with the wiring, no custom mounts and you keep it german Also saving yourself 7500.

I assume you are talking about the M3?
If so 10K for about 60bhp is crazy.
I can get at least 500-600bhp with 10 k on that engine.


As for the video i meant 17k (USD) is the rate in Japan. And i also assume that includes buying the car too.
