NexGen's e46 "340ci" m62tub44 Swap Build

That thing is bad ass.
Anyone who criticizes is doing so cause they don't understand a one off project or something very few people have some and are willing to do.
Me and my father once put a 1969 ram 3 400 Pontiac into a 1982 Trans Am.
This would be the first year of the f-body Iroc style body.
Also when they first starting putting all the same engines in all models General Motors as in both the Trans Am and Iroc z-28 shared either a Chevy 305 or350z
Where as in 1969 a trans am had a 400 Pontiac top of the line model
And the 69 Camaro had either a 302,327,350 ,396 427 or 454 is crazy enough.
My point is with the 69 400 in an essentially a 82 Camaro is.
I have seen in one other person do that in a High Pontiac Perfomance magazine.
All you get is a picture telling what's I'm the car which was a 69 400 with a turbo 400 3 1/2 intermediate pipe into a dual exit muffler.
Obviously he didn't wanna say what it takes to do that project.
Me and my father went with a Borg Warner t-10 4 speed and true dual exhaust instead of that other guys auto and single pipe exhaust.

Again point is until you actually do or have done a swap In which these gentleman and good mechanics have.
It's not a huge deal too people like us if it does not perform like an m3 in terms if acceleration.
The point is they have done d something very few people are willing to try and have succedded
Respect is due

Oh yeah the s52 or whatever from an e46 m3 puts our more power yes 330 or something compared to 290
But the m62 puts out like 330 on the torque side and the s52 is at like 280 or so
That's a pretty fare trade off.

I've been dreaming about this build. So weird to see the m3 with that v8 in it when you work on them and are used to opening the hood to the strait six.
