That's EXACTLY why I decided against a 24v swap; lots of money at a time I can't really afford it, and I would get used to it. Hell, after driving an S50E30 I was glad with my decision to stay M20.

E36 M3 = Quick
E36 M3 Boosted = Fast

i heard from far too many people that you always get used to power no matter how much there is.

whose did you drive? mine's pretty peppy, but only when it's cold and it's cold out. I still have that problem that when it warms up it becomes a pig. But then again, maybe it's all in my head. Oh well, at least on highways i can stomp on pretty much anyone.

as i mentioned in my other thread, my car feels like a bus now after driving a go-kart. Maybe i should just buy a shifter kart and get membership at Mosport club?

or just make one like this: (notice how the whole engine is still behind the front axel)


... but i digress

coming back to the original topic, whether it'll be worth it or not will depend on Anthony's goals. S54 is a modern high-tech race-bred motor and E36 is still a great chassis for track. It's great if the car will eventually be a constant-project track-only toy, but, if there is ever time to sell - there will be nothing but losses for obvious reasons.
It has a potential to be a great race car - caged fully equipped E36 chassis can be stripped down to below 2700lb which is an E30 territory.

But it still won't compare handling wise to and e46 M3 with the same preperations. Nowerdays you can get an e46 M3 chaper than paying for an e36 M3 + the transplant.

When I added the stage 2 kit to the E46 M3 I thought it was crazy, but now I'm thinking it's alittle slow. I've had the kit only one summer and I already plan on upgrading it to a custom stage 3 and nos. It's a sickness that will ever end. Save your money, keep the e36 motor and slap on a turbo from ICS. This way you can add more power without spending a sh!t load of cash.

CleanE30 (Rafal). Don't get me wrong, it's fast, a blast to drive, but I'd get used to it in no time flat. Hell, I drive my Dad's 545i all the time, and I don't think it's fast at all (anymore). That's why I'm going to go crazy on my next suspension setup, going fast around turns >>>> straight line; anyone can womp the gas of a high powered car and go quick, but not everyone can take a car around a corner at the limit of adhesion safely and consistently.

Funny thing is, the one time I'm taking it easy, coasting, is the one time I hit a huge ****ing hole and blow a tire up.
