    My same thoughts. I can wrap my head about the cost and some metal modifications, its the wiring that may be beyond me.

          Ain't it the truth. I just got schooled on what a sleeper should be. Two thumbs up!

                That is my car. Thanks guys for all the nice comments. I may make a build thread later but I've been so busy with the swap and work/school, I just haven't had the time. I'm totally going to be at the E30 Picnic this June. If you're there I won't mind answering your questions.

                  Nice!
                  We're starting to see more and more S54 swaps recently.
                  Cool swap.
                  Too bad it's a rather heavy engine.

                    Heavy compared to what? It's not much heavier than the M20 and my car and my friend's car with a S50US weighs the same on a scale.

Some people are doing the S62 swap now and that wieghs like 100 pounds more than the S54, so that is not an ideal engine for the E30 in my opinion. Neither is the S85 V10. You could do the S65 from the E90 M3. It weighs less than the S54, but given the higher cost, more complex swap, and lower efficiency, I don't believe it's ideal either.
                      Heavy compared to any other BMW inline 6.
                      It's around 40lbs more than the m50/s50us/s52us engines.
                      See my engine weights thread if you want all the details:

                        anyone that is complaining about the 40lbs more the s54 weighs over the m50/s50 is just jealous.
                        gorgeous car, so glad to see your local, cant wait to see it in person!

                              They will start to drop in price within the next few years, you can bet on it. I'd love to upgrade to one when the time comes.

                              That car is bad as fuck, there was an M-Tech I car in PBMW a few months back with an S54 swap, looked BONE STOCK on the outside with the exception of 17" Alpina wheels.

                              Dude, go find somewhere else to troll. I happen to enjoy my M50 swap quite a bit, as do many others. So pipe down when the grown-ups are talking.

                                So, what was the wiring like? More complex than stated or less?
