Cause its OBD II.... in order to convert it properly it would cost a small fortune, cause you would need all the correct sensors.... or something along those lines!

It would be a more straight forward swap if you had an OBD I M3 motor in your car (3L), but power wise, the 3.2L M motor with the M/S50 manifold will give you more power!
