LS swap advice for a Ford guy driving a BMW
I'm looking to shoehorn a LS into a 2004 e46 BMW 325i. I'm not new to swapping power trains around, so I know what I'm in for and how much work it will be, but I'm light on info about the Chevy LS series engines. My goal is an honest 300hp daily driver with a budget of around $2000 for the swap. Obviously no Ford engine(which I would be familiar with) will fit that bill.
I have done a little research and found that 5.3l's can be picked up complete with auto trans for under a $1000, and a 6.0l is just a little more. I guess I would need to know which vehicles and year ranges I would be looking to score an engine and trans from that would be suitable for a swap and the power I'm looking for.
Any help or advice would be great, Thanks ');
