New E30 Motor

I am thinking about ordering a new motor for my car one day. I am looking at this site.

http://www.zionsvilleautosport.com/s...ategory_Code=E

These prices dont seem very high, but when I click one of the motors I dont get much info on them. I wonder if they have miles on them already, or what is the deal. I am about to just order the stock motor that came in my e30 for $450. That doesnt seem like much money for a new motor though. I want to put the 3.2 M3 motor in my car and do the OBDI conversion and all of that in a year or two. But my current motor has 340,000 milies on it, and I think that a fresh motor like i have now would make it run better until i can get an //M motor.

What are the specs on that m50 motor, and what other kinds of things would I have to buy with that motor? Would you suggest a place to buy an m50 motor? On this site it says $995 dollars, but I dont know if thats a remanufactured motor, or what the hell it is. If anyone has any info on where I can get an m50 motor, and how much stuff I will have to change out please pm me, or reply on here.

Thanks,

Tracer
