e46 track build...

ive been racing for a while now with an e46 323i that for the exception of suspention, breaks, aero, wheel package, and safty equipment is bone stock. its a great car as far as balance courning ect. but as we all know seriously lacking in power. the plan is to change that.....

i want to take the power plant m62 from an M5 and cram it into a smaller car. i love the M5 but its just a bit big. im looking for a wrecked 5 so that i have everything... wiring harness, ect, tranny, diff, fuel pumps, the whole thing.

is it possible to cram all the M5 guts into a e46 3 series and how much modification of the engine bay will be needed to fit all this in?

I want to tell you... but you're everyone's problem. That's because every time you go up in the air, you're unsafe. I don't like you because you're dangerous.

considered it....the 323i motor is pretty limited with FI. the ultimate plan is to squeeze a v8 in there and build the motor and supercharge it. i want to be able to get everything i can out of the motor hence the build. i was thinking about going to the M62 motor instead of the S62 from the M5 since it will probably be cheaper if im doing a full build on the motor anyway
