If your Motor is in good working order, Keep it and add a performance chip. That is a great motor and would be a shame to waist it. If it is monster power you are looking for you can peice together an intercooled turbo for less then you would spend to change out the motor, posibly the trans, drive shaft, motor mounts, wiring, sensors etc... etc

DINAN has a few mods for your car. http://www.dinancars.com/ And TCD can tell you all you need to know about Turbos and Super chargers for the E34 http://www.turbochargingdynamics.com/

You do not have to buy the kits from them but they are a great source of info. Allso look up Turboing for e34 on google. And there is a guy on Bimmer.info forums that has done some amazing things with turbo on his e34 and is pushing close to 400 hp
