dying E30...need to swap engine

i got an '87 325is and the engine it is nearing 200k miles. just for future reference, i wanna keep my E30. so im looking for some info on where i can get a nice rebuilt engine. specifically a tuned one. ive looked at http://www.kormanfastbmw.com and http://www.metricmechanic.com rebuilt engines. does anyone have any comments on how these run or referrals to other places that sell tuned rebuilt engines?

Not to put down maxbimmer or anything, but also ask this question on DTMPower, Roadfly, and teutonic.ca
There's a lot more gearheads on those forums I find that can answer tricky questions like that.
Also do a search on google for "korman bmw review" or something a long those lines and see if there is a writeup somewhere on their products/engines.
It's the best I can think of for now sorry.

If you insist on being helpless, and paying someone else to rebuild your engine.... have it done locally.

Korman is WAY overpriced, and they are have sticks up their asses. Metric Mechanics are damn good, but expensive.

Now right in North Hollywood there is a great shop... http://www.racetep.com/INDEXX.html

Ive done business with them before, so have alot of my friends. No one has said anything bad about these people, only the highest regards.
