335xi motor swap?
 
Would a 335xi motor and tranny fit in a 2001 e46 330xi car?

To be more kind to your question...

Would it fit, maybe. It would take a lot of creative work and a lot of fabrication to make it fit.

Would it work, absolutely not.

Solution: Sell the E46, buy an E92 335i/xi (or the 335i xdrive as they call it now :thumbdwn:).

throw an ls2 motor out of a trailblazer SS into it...it has the same hole in the oil pan for the AWD LOL here is a pic.

probably just as much work and way more power

Do a 330xd conversion from the 330xi while you are at it as well!

SamDoe1 12-27-2010 04:33 PM

Since we're on this, why not an E60 M5 V10??? AND!!! Convert the oil pan for xi use. PWNAGE!!!

SweetBMW 12-27-2010 04:36 PM

5l V10, 4WD,


then Twinturbo it, and supercharge as well.. just for fun :)

Nos? sure why not.

The engine electronics would go berserk if it physically fit.

EmFiftyFour 01-01-2011 01:32 PM

You would also need to swap over that whole drivetrain. Doubt the e46 axles would fit the e90 tranny/diffs. Just be happy you have a better looking car :)

I've seen an E30 with a S85 in it. So anything's possible, but not if you're wallet isn't big enough.
