swap

You got me thinking about it since this could be carb compliant. I know the Z3 M52 had an aluminum block but to do a compliant swap do I need more than a motor, harness and ECU?

NA build options

This is what I'd do if money was no object.

Supercharger vs S52 swap

I'm curious on your math. I did quite a bit of research and it seems to me an S52 swap would cost a minimum of $3500 in motor parts alone if you find a good, used motor + DME + Harness.

There are plenty of M52 swaps out there and they just don’t excite me. I originally bought this car to do an S52 swap but as time’s gone on, I think forced-induction with my own electronics package...

Wiring

If its a wiring issues, I wouldnít expect it to be consistent, unless:

1. Battery Voltage is dropping under 10V at 2300RPM
2. You have swapped Crank + and Crank -

Cheers,
