I have a 323ci that I track in NASA Norcal. We swapped e46 m3 front and rear subframes along with rear dif. Suspension is sorted. It's time for more power. So I'm gonna do a motor swap. I have 2 choices. M62 non vanos. S38b36. I have both of these motors. The m62 I have Motor and ECU. The s38 I have the whole car to pull what I need. I know the m62 is a fairly straight forward swap. But I really really wanna use the s38. Not for any other reason than I have it and it hasn't been done. (Or at least isn't common). So can the s38 be done? What mounts and wiring? Which tranny? Any help is appreciated!!!!
