s85 into an e46 m3
well, an s85 powered e46 has been my dream car since I saw those gtrs take the prize in every race they ran. I know it's not an easy swap but I figure that there's a lot of knowledgeable guys out there as there has been a lot of these swaps done by now.
At the moment I'm looking for a reputable and honest shop to do the work that charges a reasonable amount for their job as I've seen shops charge it's clients like they are basketball stars or arab billionaires which obviously I am not.
a couple of questions:
1) do you know if I can keep my stock dash or do I have to go with something like cosworth? I'd like to keep it as stock looking as possible.
2) what I am looking to buy? m5 with man trans, radiator, manifold, headers, sump?
that said, any advice would be greatly appreciated so I can start working on getting the parts and talking to the shop to get estimates.
