I'm telling you. It's not worth it. I swapped my 320 engine out and put a 30,000km 3.2 S52 M3 engine in my car. After a month I got bored of the power. It still puts a smile on my face but not like it did. you'll never get enough of power. I love that it is N/A tho. With turbo and superchargers you will run into reliability problems. For the same money or less you can find a 328 engine and get M3 cams and have a quick/reliable little car.

Still don't think it's worth it for him to do an engine swap if he's looking for a little more pep. Especially in Quebec, a lot of those guys ship their e36's to Toronto to get engine swaps done. A turbocharger most shops can install, or he can do it himself fairly easily. I say get the Turbokit, bolt it on. If you decide later on to drop another engine in, the turbokit is transferrable to the new engine. If you don't want to drop shitloads of money on your car, this makes the most sense to me.

I was going to suggest the same.

Or if you want something that'll spool up quicker, a GT28RS Disco Potato will do the trick, and keep a little more money in your pocket.

J




wow do i modify the GT28RS to fit on the turbo manifold of a bmw ? or is it stadart size ??? maybe a stupid question but i dont know





and damn whats the difrence between

http://www.horsepowerinabox.com/hpiab2/prod176.htm

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/GT28R...58730579QQrdZ1

Save your money and save yourself from a headache (especially with a custom kit).

328 engine... converted to obd1 with m3 cams. Enjoyable power with the reliability to come with it. For around the same price.

What more could you ask for?
