I shoehorned a KKK turbo M88(euro-spec M6) into one, back in 1990. The customer had pockets up to his ears, and also wanted his M3 to have AWD. So, I welded a clip from the 325iX first, then mated the drivetrain to the 418bhp M88. The torque(396/lb.ft) was so extreme- the chassis was
twisted like a wrung-out towel.

he took first in his class in the Hong Kong/Beijing Rally.

You're not shitting us??

I've always heard the front differential in the iX is a weak point and couldn't handle too much power. An M20 no problem but a 400+ hp motor?
