I doubt you would be able to do an E9x M3 engine swap. You're probably better off looking at a tune+pulleys+exhaust etc for your car.

engine swap is really not worth the money. labor is going to cost a bomb!! the engine aint cheap either. youre better off just selling your car and maybe picking up a second hand m3.

Supercharge your 328i, you'll get ~ 100 hp more at the crank.


As for the cost of the second hand M3 , it's not that difficult.

A supercharger is a compressor driven my the engine. A compressor does just that -- compresses the air going into your engine. More air means more fuel can be used and more fuels means more power.

This is pretty basic. You really need to spend some time and do research on power mods.


Cheers.
