I nice swap, if you wanted to keep the Inline-4 theme, would be a JDM SR20DET engine from a S13 or S14 Silvia. Very very good engine, can handle a lot of boost on stock internals, and with ~220bhp, its already pretty powerful.

i'd rather maintain the 6 cynlinder theme he already has

bear in mind you can get the SR20-DET from lots of cars , bluebird, Pulsar etc..

186 km's? If it's 89-91 motor I wouldn't bother swaping it yet unless it's blown or something. the 168 hp M20 is a good motor! all it needs is a chip and a decent header.

zimmie: You should be able to fit a nice small block v8 in an e30.

I wonder if an NSX or MR2 engine would fit...hmmmmmmmm
