I own a 1996 318ti and was wondering if anybody had any experience swapping a M3 engine into cars like mine

I want to know everything i need to know to do this from where to find a engine , to what else i need besides the engine itself

I've seen people put a damn LS1 into the small 318ti so i know a 3.2l can fit and seen it myself

A euro engine is preferred but a Usdm will do, also the transmission i need if i NEED a new one to handle the power


Any help is appreciated to help me build my sleeper/dream car!! Thanks

They've been done before. As a matter of fact, my sister's husband had a compact with an S50 swap in Canada. If you do sone searching, you might just see everything you need in the vast archives of this forum.

A word of caution though, you're about to open Pandora's box! The mod bug only gets worse when it bites you the first time!

Good luck on your project and keep us posted!
