why a bad move DocG? because only after seeing the international automotive trend of planting jap engines, as well as higher spec M3 engines, the E36 seems to have had no major problems, if only slight modifications in the engine mounts. So Yes Iraghava, definitely am going for an engine swap.. will withold that information for now till its finally been ordered. Akshay my friend if you do have time, then go ahead and work your magic on it. Cheers guys!

I love the 316, have seen some modded out and out to become mean machines... keep us updated. Is that the m40 or m43

Well it all depends on what kind of power you want to go for...With the much larger engines there's a lot to consider like swapping trannys and axles etc...I've PMed you my number, give me a call if you want to discuss anything BMW I've done my homework

WOW !!! Now this is something VERY VERY interesting & If I may say tempting !!!!! How I wish I had thought of this option a few months previously !

So I'll just watch you do your thing & take a call later...I am tempted to get into the mad max mad race of BHP Chahiye LOL LOL

All the very best for the project. Knowing the talents of Autopsyche & Co. I am sure we have a lot to look forward to...Poor Evilution - is she jealous or what ?


Cheers
