1. BMW S14 engine from a 1988-1991 M3. Will fit using the stock engine mounts. Swap can be VERY expensive.

2. BMW M20B5 from E30 1987? -1991 325i(s). Dan Williams used to make some motor mounts. Dont know if he still does. Most common and best bang for buck swap.

3. BMW M42/M44 engine from 1991 318i(s). Check the project section of the faq. A couple of guys are doing it.

4. Nissan SR20DE(T). From JDM spec 180SX and Silvia. Someone on the project blog is doing this. I want it bad!!

5. Mazda 12a or 13b Rotary. From FB, FC and FD RX-7. Engine is small, light, and the exhaust exits on the same side as the 2002. Wicked!

6. Honda F22 and F22C from 2000-? S2000. Again check the project section, some one is doing this too. 9000 RPM = FUCK YEAH!!

In the end it comes down to how great you weld and how fat your wallet is. Good luck!!!

P.S. And please, for the love of all thats holy, DO NOT do this to your 2002!!

I would go for the rotary, I would prefer a nice 20B with PP but thats for a race car! A good 13B turbo would be pretty good but again its hard to find something that is a straight swap. Motor mounts are easier than wiring loom!

holy negative camber batman!!!

Try increasing the displacement on your M10.

Best fit possible and will fit all the "mounts and stuff" with no clearance issues.

By far the easiest, pretty cheap and a superb option. s14 block's are about 400 bucks bare, s14 evo cranks occasionally come up 2nd hand (iro 600 bucks) and match it all with custom pistons from Ireland (again about 600) and you have whatever compression ratio you want, 2.4 litres and a huge wallop of torque. I'm amazed Norm seems to be the only one that's gone down this road. The engine will cost a few more quid than buying a m20 but you can then put it in the car in an afternoon without any modification. MS or twin side drafts, whatever.

I'd love a daily driver with something like this.

i want to consider this for when i do my stroker, but matching an e12 head to an s14 block with an evo crank could be a problem couldn't it? wouldn't the head really limit the breathingwith just 8 valves?

slap one like that in and your are done.

Nothing beats the torque of a turbo.

true Pat, true, but nothing beats the linear delivery of a NA engine.

Maybe. However with a correctly sized turbo, the torque and power delivery is a lot more exciting....

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
