Thanks for your comments. I would put more
weight on your opinion because you have the conversion.
I posted this thousands of times, it will not
upset handling, I got it in my car, and used it
in driving schools, I dont see any difference.
the e30 m3 engine not realy reliable, and cost
alot to maintain, I got a 95 M3, no problems and
cheaper to maintain and modify, and very reliable.
and Iam still got a 90 M3 with the 4cyl for sale
with 83K miles in excellent condition, but I will
keep my other 90 E30 M3 with the 3.0L and next
week I will be done with supercharging it.
by the way before the S/C I beat easy mustang GT,
camaros and the C5 corvette, no problem, I got
the 24LB injectors, light weigh flywheel, JC chip,
headers, supersprint exhaust system, and a euro
HFM, the car is really fast, I beat 3000GT VR4,
300ZX TT, the car is amazing and the handling is
ausum, dont forget I lowered the diff to 3.25LS
Why would you say this transplant would "ruin"
the car? Do you have an E36 engine in an E30 to
say so first hand or are you spouting off your
purist views? :) Hey, no disrepect to large women,
but a fat woman in your passenger seat will upset
handing more than an E36 engine :).
Why ruin the car w/ the E36 engine in it?
Resale will be a much smaller market as many buyers prefer the factory drive train over a modded car like you will be making.
Blah blah Torque. Do a 2.5 bottom end then.
Blah blah horsepower. Do a 2.5 bottom and you will have 225 hp if tuned right.
Blah blah costs. If you cannot afford the car then don't buy it.
These are the three commmon reasons for justifying the E36 option. I have given you three solutions without ruining one of the finest factory cars ever produced.
