    I was looking at 540i's, they start from £1500 for a whole car, which is what i'd do, buy the whole lot then move over what I needed.

    Would probably stick it on management also, to get rid of the BMW ECU's etc.

    my brother has an m5. Nice car with plenty of power and torque, but up bo 100mph there pretty much the same!and its a bloody big engine that i doubt would fit in m3 and would totally ruin the handling of the car!

    in a ideal world you would want a non forced induction for track.

    The thing you dont get with a standard M engine is lots of torque, where as a turbo lump would

    Also if you was going to turbo the M3 lump you would have to be pretty handy behind the wheel to do quick times around a track.

    Might be worth getting some cams for the M3 engine, and stripping the car, making it as light as possible.

    cams and a remap gives ya an extra 40bhp.....well worth the trouble

    40bhp..... thats not much is it compared to forced induction, where as a remap would get you around 50bhp, put bigger cams in and max the turbo and injectors and you would get a fair amount more.

    as good as the rb26 dett is its definitely not bullit proof. r32 models have a poorly designed crank collar that doesnt fully engage into the oil pump drive that has a tendancy to fail. the oil pumps themselves may as well be chocolate, the internal gears are weak and a trip to the limiter resulting in oscillating revs can break the gears in the pump. unless youre lucky the above generally take the engine out at the same time.
    they spin bearings relatively frequently, generally number six and the ceramic turbos can fail (the exhaust wheel comes off) and guess what....that can take the engine out as well..
    on the plus side cranks and rods are proven to ridiculous levels and off the top of my head the rest is all pretty good for a stock motor.

    having owned an r32 and been a member on gtr.co.uk for 4 years my eyes have been opened to the strengths and weeknesses of these things. countless threads from new owners who have had the car for less than a week and melted it ( usually due to not remapping a fresh import for uk fuel) or lost oil pressure and have a 'tapping noise' coming from the engine.

    its actually an interesting point that the cossie seems to have a rep for unreliability and the skyline is known to be indestructible when in reality its far from the truth. and im not biased.....im an r32 owner!!!!! ive also had an e36 m3 and a saph.
    i dare say that as the skyline comes down in price and the wrong people start to abuse them they too will gain a reputation for unreliability.

    the answer........get a 2jz in there.
    edit: having said which, if properly rebuilt theres not a lot to choose

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

    Yes. Ive seen it several times.
    its actually a fully built engine... by Mines. So not stock in any sense.

    This is BMWs steer from the rear option
