Boosted BMW awesomeness: Check out this 674 wheel horsepower turbocharged E36 M3 with an S54 swap
This is just plain awesome. Engine swaps into E36's are nothing new but always great to see a BMW heart used with a BMW chassis. In this case an E46 M3 S54 inline-6 was swapped into the E36 M3 you see below. The E36 M3 S50US motor under the hood had its timing chain give and the owner decided rather than rebuild the motor to dump it for the S54 and then give it a Horsepower Freaks (now defunct
) turbo kit.
The result? A 674 wheel horsepower fire breather. It will be interesting to see how the lighter E36 M3 performs with this wheel horsepower in contrast to the slightly heavier E46 M3. The difference is just under 300 pounds which should make for quite a ride.
