i think a 330i upgrade looks more easier from what you described. Are the 330i and m3 brakes similar in breaking power?

They're very similar in braking power, the M3 front rotors have a bit more mass to absorb heat, but aside from that they're the same. Now that I think of it, you MAY need a master cylinder swap on the 330i brakes as well if you do the front and rear.

The S54 also had double vanos as a note. Anything can go wrong on any engine, it's a chance you take.

Yes, it's 321hp in stock form, and yes it's an OBDII engine. It can be converted to OBDI, but I can't imagine spare OBDI S50 wiring harnesses and ECU's being all that common on their own.

Floating Rotors: http://www.wildwestcycle.com/f_disks.html

OBD2 has alot of stuff done to limit emissions, has more o2 sensor, etc. OBD1 is more tunable.
