Hey guys, so I’m in LA and 2-3 months now I search for a decent e46 330 coupe 2D with not crazy mileage. Apparently it’s difficult to find so I was thinking is it worthy to go 325 or 328 and swap on a 330 motor or something else? I want to make a drift car.

Easier to swap a 330 into a 325 than into a 328. And in any case 328-330 is not enough to make it worth the effort.

Swap will cost $5-800 for the engine and another $600-$1k for bits you should replace with the engine out. And you need tools and a space to work.

A 328 with the throttle cable might make for a better drift car.

Just make sure to reinforce the subframe mounts, they're very weak on the early 323/328s
