Lightbulb e30/m60 swap or not.

Hey, my name is Donny i recently purchased a 1990 325is, and was thinking of doing a M60 swap. I was wondering if that sounds like a good idea or should i keep my engine and just do a rebuild, if so what can i do to add some significant hp to the engine.

if you go for the m60, get the m62. itll be lighter. and more torque.
