s62, lt1, ls1, & jz swaps.
 
I'd like to start a general thread regarding these swaps..

-Who's done 'em?
-Different mods?
-Cost, reliability, maintenance, etc.?
-Horsepower, weight, 0-60, general power?
-Sound & tone during revs & idle?
-Turbo'd/SC'd?

Personally I'd love to talk about these swaps in the e46. Or just in general.


LS1
LS/LT
S62 (M5 V8)
1JZ & 2JZ
SR20DET


I've heard the LS and LT are the best "bang for the buck," but personally, I think the JZ is one of the most amazing motors ever, and I especially enjoy it's orgasmic sound :drool:
The SR20DET is a great overall motor as well, capable of roughly 400-500 on stock internals.
Unfortunately I don't know much about the s62 though.

I don't know a whole lot about each motor, which is why I'm researching and I'd like to see a specific thread on these swaps too, for whoever is interested.

Anyways, thoughts? Opinions? Comments? Questions?

GO!


PS. Here's a video I shot today of my buddy doing a quick pull with his recently dropped 2j (used to have 1j)..

I'm posting because I am curious about this stuff too.

My vote goes to ls v8, I think they are beautiful engine's. I plan to swap a ls2 or ls3 into my E46 a few years down the road.

E46inthe206 12-02-2012 05:59 PM

In the wagon? That'd be sick! Haha.

That is the plan. It will be a total sleeper when it's done!

More details on my GMBMW will be forthcoming in the next week...

^Good to hear!
I'm excited about my future swap just thinking about it.

I think we need a "how to" guide on an LS1 swap in an e36 chassic, retaining all interior oem electronics :D

I've done the numbers, and here in Aus it'll cost me about 10k installed including car and engine (doing a lot of the labour in my garage though).

E46inthe206 12-03-2012 12:19 PM

Why e36?? lol.

v8 5 12-03-2012 07:53 PM

2jz bro it's a 2jz

jerseyzillest 12-03-2012 08:05 PM

Your way better off with an LS motor, non turbo, no tuning issues and your pushing 400-500 hp.

Heaps easier to keep an operational oem cluster/dash, iirc.

I would love a 2jz e46 m3.... A couple shops ignored me.. Including Luts Performance.. Max psi said they already had to many projects..So i ended up turboing my s54

E46inthe206 12-14-2012 09:47 PM

JZPowered is a nice place as well.

Sounds sick! Not fond of the whole ipad thing though.. lol.

This is relevant to my interests :) Not for myself but rather just enjoy seeing others work in these areas.

I searched and read through a few threads around different forums on an sr20det swap. Some people mentioned how you'd be messing with weight distribution and such. Which is understandable. What would you need to do to drop an sr20 in there?
I was thinking about selling my e46 for enough money to build a 400+hp 240. I was going to buy a clip with an SR motor and drop it into a shell.
But I"m just curious as to how it would work in our e46's.

Sell the e46 and have put down 10-15k on a built SR + paint, suspension, wheels OR swap the e46 with the amount of pathetic savings I currently have and still be slower than a built SR.

I made a list of the SR20 parts I'd need and my buddy would hook me up with the turbo/intake manifold for 1500 total.

PSI in Portland would be doing the swap/tuning.

My cousin did an ls2 in his e36 m3. Even if you are doing the work yourself, which will be a pretty large undertaking, parts alone will cost 5-7k.

That's a nice swap, but unfortunately we have e46's and doesn't that mean it'd be more complex involving more parts? Or no?
Regardless, I'd rather have a built import haha.

Twin_Turbo_S54 12-28-2012 05:36 AM

go for a S54.

Its a very good engine. I was making North of 1000 whp 3 years ago and was not able to put it to the road.

Best 60-130 mph of mine has been 4,23 s. Made with S54. Its a great engine. I Loveeeeeeeeeee it

No need to elsewhere.

S54.
