How about an N52 that makes 1/5th the power of a tuned 2JZ? This man doesnt have an N54.

...unless you reprogram it to show that it's an M3 when you start it up.. it's just a mere shell

So, if you want a REAL transformation, follow what this guy did: http://e46.mit.edu/

I love this job, buddy. I've been trying to convince the wife to let me do the same on my 335d. Only difference would be that I would use the badge (the one stating "335d"). I love the looks of the m3 (who doesnt) but i would want to make sure people know its not an m3, but rather a very uncommon diesel. Never going to get the stamp of approval on that one though, so in the meantime I will make due living vicariously through skilled folks such as yourself.

Keep up the good work & thanks for posting project reports to contribute to the forum. I'm sure these will help a lot of folks who are considering the conversion.

A 325i to a M3....Why? Go buy a M3 then you get the performance too, not just the looks.

"Because in Greece, you can buy two and half 325i's for the price of one M3. And in many countries the registration fee/tax increases exponentially with engine size/power/CO2 levels."

If we can live in a world where we dont burn every single donk I see running around the South East USA, we can certainly live with a converted to look like M3. I agree I wouldn't have spent the money on this, but I'm sure it will look good and if it makes u happy/what you want... then I say go for it.

Just dont go around telling people its a real M3... thats where it gets kinda poseurish... if u just like the look, and want the look... enjoy!
