      Ngl I知 stuck at a fork in the road for which direction to go in. I am going to swap out the m20, I知 looking at some options and I知 trying to decide between going through with 4 cylinder or a v8 I知 just not really sure. I知 trying rn to figure out what the end cost will be for either set up. I致e never been a horsepower guy or one to really race but Ik that tastes change, on one hand the 4 cylinder will be cheaper but I値l be pretty much tapped out on power at around 220ish but with the v8 it gives me a base that will allow me to chase power later on if I choose to do so.

      what do you guys think?

          If you think getting 220hp out of a 4 cyl (I'm assuming M42?) will be cheap then you are in for a not so nice surprise.

                Not sure why I am entertaining this as the work you are doing to this car makes no sense, there are way better base cars to start this work with that would fit your style.

                But oh well, why would you remove an M20 to put a 4 cylinder in, unless its some crazy turbo it will not be worth it?

                Your easiest route would be an LS if you are going non bmw, but your cheapest would be a BMW M60, they are cheap to buy.

                    I値l def finish the interior before I start the swap. I don稚 think I値l even have everything together to start it until the end of the year at the earliest

                      I知 leaning towards either an sr20 or a 3sge beams for the 4 cylinder options and for the v8 the only one id even consider is a 1uzfe but the only thing holding me back is the cost of a decent w58 and the adapters id need for the 1uz

                      Definitely my cheapest option is the 3sge but I知 still on the fence about it

                          holy shit. that is some awsum work thar. i sure do love what you did with those fender lips.

                          you will indeed git yer dik blowed.....by dudes. just roll up on a bunch of old hispanic gais standing around a burning trash can and they will all line up to blow you.

                          you need one of those horns that blows la cucaracha or the mexican national anthem. where are all the dingleballs for around the windows?

                          i forgot how fortunate we are that little bois generally cant afford e30's anymore.

                              We're all one wheel falling off, and a thousand shitposts away from being a Sonny ourselves.

                                Whilst some folks here disagree with your style choices, they know their s**t about performance e30痴. The best bang for your buck is to turbo your current motor. Then if you want a better motor, stick with the BMW 6痴. If you must V8, then the M6x route is easiest. Once you go V8, the exhaust, transmission, driveshaft all become issues, not the adapter plate. The e30 doesn稚 have room for a Japanese trans that will hold the power without cutting the car.
