This is a start. I have an M50 car. I have literally never touched a V8 E34 but what I can tell you is this.
As far as internals go, 540i components are already forged and can handle a moderate level of forced induction.
Intake is already free flowing. Don't waste money on aftermarket. Look into drop in filters on the forum, there's plenty of information. Ship me some info and I'll put it into the writeup.
Exhaust does nothing performance wise except for sound.
You could look into chips but I dot think there's many out there. After motor work, a dyno tune or custom tune would be preferable.
If you have a 530i, swap the M60B30 for a M60B40.

I'll pick up research again and try to get you V8 guys (compensators lol) some good stuff.
