The steering on the H50 has to be modified to fit the V8 in.

Samir, is it possible to twin turbo the stock 3.0 inline 6cyl or would one have to do major engine work first? --Also, what is your opinion on the rumored upcoming bi-turbo 3.0?

Wouldn't it be cheaper to trade-in your car and get a M3?

a bi-turbo would be a lot faster then an m3.

Definitely possible...compression is 10.2:1, so you could boost about 7-8 psi safely, good for about 355HP/350ft.lbs. A custom twin setup would be more trouble than it's worth...a single Garrett T04 could do the job.

As for the rumored 3.0TT, it's nice to see BMW has chosen to play the power game with the others (MB, Audi)...it's not like they're a stranger to forced induction => the current 330d in Europe is running a 3.0L I6 single turbo. But I'll believe it when I see it. In any case, even if BMW does not follow through, it's only a matter of time before someone does release a turbo kit for the E46.

Would the M62 be an easier fit or transplant then? It sounds like one would be able to use more existing parts from the 3er with the 4.4liter.
