the 4.4l isn't great out of the box and has very ittle performance mod capability later on.

if you want a cheap, GOOD v8 .. go with an ls1. it's lighter than a bmw v8 and has a huge performance parts market and support behind it.

if you are broke and this thread was really just BS, go with an m30. otherwise the m30 is a really, really poor choice for a motor swap.
