    Why is this a question

    I paid 250$ for a junkyard m54. So that's 50-100x's less than a s14. The E34 oil pan is going to cost me as much :(. I have a m42 and spent a year reading on what it would take to make 200hp and it costs tons, and weighs marginally less than a M54.

    S14 if cost no object.
    M4x stroker for budget handling.
    M54 for daily driver grunt - no other engine on this list will happily cruise on the highway with tall gearing and an overdrive.

    If the S14 was a B25 variant, the choice would be simple.

    M54.

    If you were going to swap an engine into an E30 which would you choose? Would your decision be different if cost was not a factor? Which would make you smile the most behind the wheel? For any of these choices you can leave it stock, build it up for max NA power, or turbo/supercharge it. If you don't want to swap then select the one you're going to keep.

    1, 24V (M50, S54, N52, etc)

    2. M42/M44

    3. S14 (any variant)

    4. M10

    5. M20

    6. Big Six (M30, S38, M88, etc)

    7. V8 (M60, S62, S65, etc)

    8. Diesel (M21, M51, M57, etc)

    9. Non-BMW engine (Chevy, Honda, etc)
