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.
So why not buying a camaro V8 LT1 1994 ?
now u confused me a bit you saying GM engine are better for the E30 i mean what is an E30 without BMW engine ? please explain you got the most decent answer I got so far
