Hi,

im wondering how difficult it will be to transplant a 318 or even a 323 engine into a 316i compact?
what would i need from the doner car etc??

iv got atm a 1997 e36 compact and looking for plenty more juice.
i know that it would be much easyer to just buy a bigger car instead of moding but iv just got this car the way i love it so dont really want to sell it now

Thanks in advance for any advice/tips you can give

Well they did a e36 compact 323i so it's possible, but will require a fair bit of work, the EWS will be one snag so you will need the DME, EWS Module, ignition barrel e.t.c from the 323i vehicle.

They also did a 318ti so again it's possible but still will need EWS components e.t.c
