How about the IRS on a M5 doesn't it handle more torque then the standard IRS with the E39 528, 525 or 530? Unless you're on a budget, I'd buy the M5 over a 540, it redlines at 7,000 RPM.rpm.

Here's several picture I found of some one named Clay Sanderson actually installing a L1 Chevy Motor with a supercharger in a E39. The thread shows the custom engine mounts and transmission cross member he made.http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1888893
