m10 up to nearly 300hp (efi, turbo etc)

if you are keen on sixes, the m20 is your best bet. (e30, 325i for example) as there is lots of data about this swap on the net.

...by a few folks. This one's a M Powered car but you get the

idea. I would think if you are willing to do heavy fabricating it

could be done right. I would shift that motor rearward to be

sure. Say good-bye to your heater core and associated

metalwork. Big time modified tranny tunnel. Totally different

differential and mounts. Hope you know how to weld:). If you

can build the motor to its full potential it would be scary fast.

However, if you are going to just use the stock, or even

somewhat tweaked big six, you would be better off going with

a heavily modifies S-14, or M20. Save some weight and

reduce fabricating. Probably handle a lot better too. If you just

want to go really fast in a straight line, throw in a small block.

Biggest bang for the buck and yes, it's been done.

if you have too much money burning a hole in your pocket.

But why not just buy a car with the bigger motor already in it?

2002's were never built to be muscle cars...
