In Reply to: Sounds good, as long as... posted by Jon on April 27, 2001 at 11:41:26: add some individual throttle bodies. That feature is one of the essential properties of M-Power, IMO, and the lack thereof is one of the best arguments for the idea that the US E36 M3, M-Coupe, and M-Roadsters were not "true M cars."

They had the full M-Technik treatment, but they lacked the full force of M-Power. If I'm not mistaken, all other M cars, from the M1 to the E46 M3, not counting the M535i which lacked M-Power completely, have been true to form.


You'd be better off with a M52 Aluminum Block and modifying that... A cast iron M-50 base block translates to A LOT of will know right off the bat that you lost the "nimbleness" of your E30..
