This is a good question. THe 3.2 M engine is a bolt-in and really a very easy install. HP is high and probably results in a more reliable platform. Problem is cost and availability of engine. Supercharging is a neat idea thatdoesn't carry the problems of turbo (lag, meltdown, etc) and provides good hp gain (ERT claims about 280).
My first preference is the 3.2 M engine. A 3rd party engine supplier can supply a souped up version for about 10K-12k. Superchargers go for about 8K. Personally, I'd buy a 540
: Supercharge or bigger capacity engine for E39 528 upgrade ???
