I don't need to use the m54 cam and there is a guy in Queens that will probly give me a m54 intake cam for next to nothing, so paying for a polish does not make sense.

Yep and they are not comparable with one another. If I put an e36 hood in front of you, you probly would not be able to tell me if it is a coupe or a sedan. However if you tried to bolt it to your...

That sucks man. That engine is defiantly toast now.
I have never heard of a LQ9 in an e36 before, so that swap would entail a lot custom work and figuring sh!t out on your own. If you want a V8 in...
