He may take over when comfortable posting pics, etc. I talked with him on a phone and thought this project may be exciting to check out.

Don't get discouraged. There are several threads on this forum where people have dropped a Corvette engine into an E46. It sounds like v8madhatter is taking the pains to keep as many original parts as possible, and that is encouraging. Most of us support that.

I'd much rather see a chevy smallblock dropped into an E46 than tinted windows and blacked out body lights. "Murdered" I think is the term for it. Good term, don't take offense, but I'm not a fan.
