Thats actually a pretty good deal for a brand new engine. It looks small enough to fit

It should fit, at least the viper V10 isn't cast iron like the Hemi V8s!

agreed. I've seen newer, bigger BMW engines shoehorned into e30's.

I feel like someone has done this swap already. My bet would be some Viking did it...


EDIT: yup.





While not the same generation it would appear, the Dodge V10 does seem rather compact when compared to some of the BMW V-10 swaps.

Only thing I see if you step on the gas is an e30 flipped on to its roof.
