    hey members,

    I am no pro but I have a full E36 Donor with everything. I was wondering if anyone has an idea if I could make this work or ever heard of someone making this work?

    That blue widebody car that was at sema has an s52 turbo. It kinda looks small in the engine bay. But i dig how the valve cover looks in it. What part of florida are you from Albert?

    The same gentleman who did Josh Stern’s S54 powered e9 has done an S52 swap into an e9. His name is Jeff Tighe. I spoke to him a long time ago about the S54 swap and he advised against it; basically said it was the wrong motor for the coupe (high rev’ving) . He said that the s52 is a better choice if going that route.
