I love the out of the box thinking that was needed when doing something like a Toyota 1JZ swap into a BMW! I mean the story of how that came about must be hilarious. I think there are about 6-7 BMW’s now that have successfully done this swap, and I think its great. Now, it doesn’t mean everyone should go and swap out a awesome M motor, but if you want some out of the box reliable power then by all means go for it. I am curious as to how much heavier/lighter that 1JZ is compared to a boosted M50 motor. The E36 I have pictured below I spotted at H20 and always wondered why it sounded so different every time it passed by. Looking real good dropped on a set of CCW Classics, it really doesn’t need anything else.
