    hi there, still a bit new to the site so still getting to grips with learning how to use it....

    i own a e36 316, but its had a engine conversion...... they said its a 2.5 ......... but its not as fast as a 2.5 should be. its definately 2 litre upwards as its 6 cylinder.

    Can you post up a picture please

    Has the engine capacity been changed on the log book?

    If not you will have to have it amended

    Also the engine code will be on the engine block, near the passenger side engine mount(behind) where it bolts to the block.

    Otherwise post a picture up and we may get a better idea. I'd think it would be a choice of between a 2.0 litre or 2.5. 2.0 if it's that slow.
