Hey guys. I've been lurking for a little bit and finally decided to post. I'm a bimmer guy, but I have a lot of respect for many different types of cars as opposed to other people who happen to drive the same make as me. The ls1 is undoubtedly one of the greatest motors for the price, I was thinking of saving up and dropping one in my 528i in a year or so. I know it's a lot of money and work, but it's better than having to bend over and open a new tub of vaseline everytime I go to the dealer for maintenance
. The e39 is a little heavy compared to the e36 which this swap seems to be popular with, but it's better than the 2.8 with the slushbox. How much can an "all motor" ls1 put out?
This is my motivation check it out. http://www.members.aol.com/hagancue/
