    Seroiusly mate dont! We used to rally a escort cossie running 450bhp with a restrictor and it was unreliable as hell. 2 engines, 3 gear boxs, 3 turbos, diffs, suspension, tca's, ecus, hoses and rad it went through and everything was fu*king overpriced and yes the car was stupidly fast, but we were afriad to push it hard incase we broke it.

    Now, wheres the fun in that?

    I've always wanted an M3 or supercharger... Now I want the supercharger to bolt to my M3 engine

    If you're going to be rebuilding the engine anyway then now is the time to get the wallet out and go the whole hog

    as good as the yb engine is i just cant see why anyone would convert an m3 to run one. surely for the money you could rebuild the m3 and turbo it, bear in mind that you would have to pay good money for a proven yb or rebuild one to make the conversion worth while.

    the parts are out there for turbo conversions if you look or you could speak to a tuning company to see what they say. there are a few turbod m3s around so it must be doable.

    if youre gonna go for a conversion forget the yb and look at the toyota 2jz engine. i dont think ive ever heard anything bad about them.

    325tds until i finish the skyline...........but i do quite like the tds!!!

    If done properly and with a proper tune, the engine will last many many thousands of miles.

    it depends on power output though.. a highly tuned, 600 hp engine may not last as long as say a 350 hp motor.. however Ive heard of near stock 328 engines making 600rwhp (675 engine hp) and driving like stock for years..

    Though items like clutch, brakes etc will take a bit more stick..

    BMW engines are ROCK solid

    i really want to turbo it but i honestly dont think it can be done for 10k. I was told about a company called west tuning, but are there any others about that you recommend?

    i cant believe the attitude towards the yb in this thread. is there a better proven engine out there other than posibly the rb and the 2jz. bear in mind the yb was designed in the early80s and is only 2000cc and the majority have been tuned to at least stage 1, around 280bhp god knows how long ago and thrashed ever since.
    take a 3.0 m3 to the equivalent bhp per liter (420) on stock internals, hammer it for 50k miles and see how you get on. in fact, just try to get it to 360 bhp and then consider how easily the yb achieves this with 1000cc less displacement.

    Naturally aspirated VS Forced induction

    Not exactly a fair comparison.
