        Better that you've got that lifted Alpine now. Did you ever identify that cam you're running?

          Well, she wont be lifted for long. Lol.
          I have a full set of H&R sports and bilsteins on order as well as a full suspension refresh so im the next month or two it will be getting prettier.
          As for the cam, im fairly certain its a 288. Not positive but im like 90% sure.

            Hey guys, I really need to hear some opinions. I have a 318is in pretty decent condition but a rebuilt title and some cosmetic issues. The car has always seemed a little low on power, especially in low rpms. I also have a M52 block and f transmission...

            Should I go ahead and swap it? I feel confident I could get the swap done nicely and cheaply but I am also aware 318is's are rising in value and could be worth a decent sum, especially in my area, and I wouldn't want to tear apart a running car if it is desirable and rare. Or does the title kill this?

            What do you all think I should do? Will the M52 ruin the balance of the car? Do any of you regret swapping out your M42?

              the 318is is the best car to do a swap on hands down.


              When i scroll craigslist, if i see bad title, i dont even bother with the ad, and i think others do the same


              Please leave feedback below, thanks

                Thanks for the prompt response Matt, I appreciate your insight regarding the title, makes sense.

                But I don't quote understand why you say the 318is is the best to swap into, only ~2% of e30s were the M42 and they are very fun to push to their limits, 16v as well and much more modern than m20. Do you think a swap and the extra weight that come with it will compromise handling significantly?

                  Swap that boat anchor out and go have some fun. 24v is amazing in an E30.

                    m42 is the shit. lighten the car up and get a chip. the sssquid chip in my car made all the difference... if it is a rebuilt title just gut it haha :) youre gonna have a car that is faster than a m20b25, handles better, and gets better mpgs. Oh and no timing belt, more modern fuel injection/ignition and did I mention the better handling?

                            ^ woah look at that! A head that flows better than any m20 factory head ever but is kind of prone to cracking LOL. I just think it is SO FUNNY that people knock the most technologically advanced engine BMW ever installed in the E3 for the masses.

                              ...because you're not really supposed to let it drop below 3200 anyway.

                              I'd say do whatever makes you happy!

                              M54 for me, I think. Because aluminum blocks are... lighter? And you can get

                                hey what kind of laptimes does your m42 powered car put down at PIR?
