FI is not cheap, like in the other thread about ebay kits, it seems like its an affordable project but in the end the cost will be just as much as a kit would have cost you. believe me ive seen it time and time again people spending so much extra to get things done proper. be very careful when choosing your routes and dont forget when you go with a kit, your going with a proven setup. id personally look into swapping your motor for a 325 (preferably non-vanos) and than start venturing into FI as im sure you can pick up a 2.5 for cheap and there is more options for the 2.5 in terms of compatability and tunning.

Depends on your experience. Id say turbo is easier (and better to work on), its more spaced out...instead of the RMS stage 2 setup, its a bitch to work on.

My advice is do what furious said, we have a few non vanos going for cheap...we can ship it to you no probs. They have a lower compression ratio, dual valve springs, no vanos (easier for tuning), and also the cylinder walls are slightly thicker than the vanos counter-part and also the connecting rods are as, or thicker than E36 M3 if I recall correctly.

your correct, the reason the non-vanos is the boost happy of the e36 engines were because the rods were a thicker non tapered style. and the cyl walls were thick and strong.
