    Would you still think like that?

    I must admit, the Saphs dont really float my boat unless its had some extras, but a modded or standard 3dr sierra cosworth is porn.

    Also, turbocharging or supercharging a M3 lump is not as explorered as the cosworth engine

    Lots more people will play with a cosworth engine than a turbo'ed M3 lump.

    More of the shelf parts for the cosworth engine as well, things like this make a big difference when it comes to repairing or making it that bit more special for the track.

    If it was me, I would drop a E90 M3 lump in or try push a M5 lump in

    old fast fords have a very loyal and dedicated fanbase,but even the most blinkered know the engines could be better...hell even ford admitted as much when they started fitting volvo engines into their flagship models.
    if someone is willing to go to the trouble and expense of modifting a motor to that extent,then why not spend the money on turboing the S50/52 engines and save a lot of hassle with transmissions and electrics?
    what i've felt,what i've known
    never shined through in what i've shown.

    i did locate an alpina 4.6 v8 and full running gear, but did not buy because i could not here the engine run, maybe a 4.4 out of the 540 it cheap and fast once it gets going
