I currently own early 1999 BMW E36 316i coupe and I really love that car more than any other car I ever owned probably because its been my dream car since the day the firs e36's ware introduced to replace e30.
Anyway my joy currently has an m43b16 engine in it and its not the most powerful engine out there but i am not looking for the most powerful engine all i want is just a little bit more power and reasonable fuel economy as the car is my daily driver.
I have a loot of money spent on a car like custom paint job/full m3 body kit,full m3 interior conversion,on board computer hooked up,coilovers/new wishbones/diff/thicker swaybars/poly bushings all around/rear strut poly mounts/front camber plates,bbs style5's and lots of other little things for which list can go on and on.....
I really dont feel like selling my beauty and buying another one with a bigger engine as its really not worth it for me as i would never get my money back that i have spent already.
So what i had in mind was an engine conversion for an a m42b18 or a m44b19?
I still have not made my final decision with what engine im going to go.
So cud anyone give me an advice on what i will need to make my engine conversion rewiring,ecu,ews, ect... and also cud anyone who have had or still has an m42b18 or a m44b19 share your experience you had.
Feel free to share your thoughts,experience and suggestions i will be grateful.
