Used Euro engine sell for around $10k
I saw perhaps the car you're referring to at a Mid-Ohio Club race, maybe not. The one I saw was Canadian, black, it had the 3.2L Euro motor, fiberglass fenders (flared out even further), a diff cooler, big brakes, running 265 width race tires on 18" rims and I'm sure a few more modifications including a very high GT style wing.
The guy I was crewing for with a slightly modified US E36 M3 with a stripped interior was faster.
Acutally there was another Canadian E30 M3 (red) with an identical GT wing to the Euro motored one but this one was powered by a 2.5L S14, he was even faster than the guy I was crewing for. The red E30 M3 was 4th fastest behind two Euro motored
E36 M3s and Charles Stickley's LTW which is probably the fastest BMW club racer in this area of the country.
The red E30 M3 was also on stock brakes with Hawk Blues brake pads. :-)
