    Hey guys
    ive just been offered a CA18 out of a nissan 200sx for my BMW..
    i know people have run them in E30's
    but i was wondering if you can get a conversion for an E36??
    mines currently only a 318iS so its still the same straight 4 set up..

    any advice would be great, as it could be a mint conversion!

    I wouldnt do the ca18det conversion as the bottoms ends are pretty poor. Go for the sr20det. Brilliant engine. You can get a sr20det for £400-700. More power, more reliability. Bolt a GT2871R Turbo with Nismo 555 injectors, Power FC computer which is plug and play, a nissan 300zx turbo Air flow meter, you good for about 380/400BHP 400FT/LB. All these parts are always available..
