I like !

When do you think it will be done ?

Side question: The 540 drive by wire throttle body you have, do you have any idea if it would work from an electrical stand point with a 330Ci, as in plug & play ? I understand some port matching would need to be done to the 330 intake manifold.

I think this will be a very cool build. Basically a 3.2L M54 engine without the DISA intake manifold.

Julio, didn't we discuss like 2 years ago? You're late to the party man!

There's also a car in Miami with the conversion done. The shop bought the wrong motor but made it work to replace an overheated m54. The car you're referring to in Europe had it done right though, and from my understanding made gobs of power
