Barry, I've not done either one of these scenarios but I was under the impression that all E36 M3 engines had more torque/h.p. than the S14 (as much as I love it) correct me if I'm wrong. But if that was true then I couldn't say that the M50 would be pointless (especially if it was time for a rebuild anyway). Now, if you didn't need a rebuild but just wanted a hellacious power to weight ratio then the S50 seems awfully comparable to the 2.5 conversion. Even if it cost a couple grand more you'd have more H.P. wouldn't you? If anyone has done these conversions please feel free to educate me.
