Well, this should be nearly as offensive to German auto purists as the dude in this month's Hot Rod who submitted a picture of his Porsche 928 with a 6-71 and bug catcher sticking through the hood. A company/individual is offering a $5800 kit to install a GM LS1/T56 combo into your E36 BMW 3-series. Given contents such as a wiring harness and custom long-tube headers, the pricing looks about right. It's being billed as a way to build a M3 killer, which is probably accurate if the project car is given an adequate (read: extensive) level of suspension prep. To me, it seems like a great use for a 318ti, and with the potential of 11-second timeslips, you'll probably have the best sleeper in town.
