You better make certain that the drivetrain and all of the other bits and pieces of the car can handle that much torque, including the drive shaft and differential. Also, if this adds weight to the front, you may loss the main reason for owning a beemer, its control, handling, and braking. Good luck.

Hey guys,
I, like everyone here, am in love with my e34. It's a 92 525i 5spd M50 NON-Vanos. As you can see I'm not dealing with a lot of power. I was thinking of a major project and I would like some feed back. 1. An engine swap for a M3 engine. Question: What year M3 engine could I put in my car and how much do you think it would be. 2. ActiveAutoworke Turbo Stage 2 Generation 3 upgrade. It rockets the M3 0-60 in 4.2sec. Imagine and E34 pulling up to a Z8 and keeping up with it!!! Any extra information you could give me would help. Thanks guys.
