possible ford small block swap into BMW E34 535
ive got a 91 bmw 535 bmw with 286k mi on it, it runs really well, i just cant seem to kill the motor so i was thinking about putting a mildly built ford 302 in it. it seem you cant have a conversation with BMW guys related to putting an american motor in a BMW, the immediately deem you an idiot and just bash you, or tell you to put the bmw 4.4 v8 in it (which only produces about 15 more hp than the current 3.5 I6 that is in it) so i was wondering if anyone on here has any experience with the older 5.0's, or 5.0 swaps in to other cars. the ford 302 is supposively the only one that isnt too tall to fit under the hood and its not too heavy. the only other motor is a GM 5.3 and im not too sure on that one.
if anyone has experience witht the motors or swaps let me know, thanks.
