    People say E30 swallows everything, from 4 banger to twin-turbo V12. And it does

    Heh, I'm sure that I can make the E36 take whatever I want to stuff in it as well, making all kinds of sparks along the way...
    I was just commenting on a the swap not being as straightforward as it might be in other cars that have an engine bay that is better suited for it.
    If you asked me to do it, I'd probably take the long route of converting some of the front of the E36 into a tube frame so that it could be done with OE headers and can be taken to a ref for legality purposes.

    Well it was a thought, I'm not a checkbook engineer.
    If nothing happens and there is no one around why did it not happen?

    An interesting read on the new Ford Mustang flat-plane crank.
