europena car reported on Racemarque Engineering putting a European spec M motor in the Z3 when it first came out. I believe they had to move the heater control and a few other items -- it wasn't a small job. If I remeber the cost, it was in the $20K range - probably out of yuor budget.

Cross-marque swaps are also tricky - leave the Chrysler engine for someone else - perhaps a 230SLK owneer looking fo ra bit more oomph.

I would definitely recommend the DA supercharger. I did one of the first installs and really love it.

Yes how was the D/A supercharger install. Can an guy with average mechanical ability do it?
