S...E...A...R... you get the point

Yes, it has been done. But the cost of it and complexity is immense. On e30's it's a piece of cake and a good mechanic with someone to help can do it in a weekend. But on the E46, the electrical systems make it extremely difficult. For the time and money to do such a project, you could but an M3 and save up the next few years of insurance money.

If you want more info, search the Showroom Forum for MITE46's M3 S54 swap into a sedan.

If you thought the insurance was going to be bad on the M3, wait until you tell them you've chucked the engine out of one into a regular E46. I'd be surprised if they insured you at all, let alone for less than a stock M3.

My good friend and BMW Tech recently swapped the whole Bottom End of an E46 M3 into his E46 328i, if that helps.

Someone, I can't remember their name BUT I do remember that they're from Malaysia. They Had a E46, and swapped in a 2JZGTE. Look em up. I've been looking into a few 2JZ engines after I read about that.

it's doable. I'm not the first. some dude in Florida, and a pro drifter in finland, and another one in indonesia. they drop in without problems.
