    I'd rather have a freshly built engine, than a junkyard motor of unknown history.
    Turning an M50 into an S5X vs Refreshing an S5X, pretty sure the latter will be an easier and cheaper path.. I wouldnt recommend anyone pull any CL or Junkyard motor and drop it right in. Almost as bad as trying to get S5X power out of a m42 :hitler:


    Also S50 are silly over priced compared to S52. 2500$-5000$ for a S50US vs 1000-2500$ for S52

        Definitely. A Euro S50B30/B32 is way more expensive than a US S50, but then again, you're paying for more HP/TQ, ITB's and awesomeness.

        And the biggest expenses were definitely refreshing my S52.

          Naw man, just sensible.

          That's why i find it kind of funny nowadays how people wanna drop in an S54 into an E30 for the price tag of $10-$15k all said and done, when now, you can buy an E46 M3 for that same price range, and have a better car.

          Dont get me wrong, I still wanna build an S54 E30, but not where the prices are at the moment.

            Did he just say e46 is better than e30?

            Comment


              E30 with S54 = low resale value
              E46 M3 = $$$

              we all know which car is better.

                "Better at what?" would be a more appropriate question.

                  All this talk about swaps and this and that. Just drive your fucking car and do what you want.

                    It's about the chassis. E46 is a whole different car.

                      Nope. I wouldn't have owned over 24 E30s over the past 7 years if I didn't think they were phenomenal cars. But in terms of best bang for your buck, I PERSONALLY would rather spend $10k on an E46 M3 than spend $10k swapping an E30.

                      Both have their ups and downs. Owning both, I understand each of their duties. The e46 is a more comfortable daily that has everything you would want/need without too many over-the-top creature comforts. It's safer, quieter...the list goes on. In my eyes, the e30 is a perfect weekend/track toy.

                          A E46 is far and above a much better car than a E30.

                          It's better at EVERYTHING, except maybe driver feedback due to some nanny electronics.

                          The only reason I still own one of these shitboxes is because I needed something to drive while S54 swapping my touring

                              All this talk about swaps and I'm over here pulling out the m20 and putting in an inline four

                              Started ripping into the bodywork yesterday. This is going to be fun!
