    Welcome! Yup, some very solid used motors out there for so much less. A few people on this and e46fanatics have done the swap, very doable but more than just the motor.

    Welcome Sam. How slow was that Ferrari going for you to want to overtake it?

    Personally, I'd go with the used ZHP motor. If you want S54 performance, rather than a swap, you may consider looking for an E46 M3. You can find them for under $20K with less than 100K miles.

    Good luck.

    It doesn't have to be a ZHP motor... any M54B30 will do. If you really want to, you can just swap the cams over and call it a day.
    That's really the only difference between the ZHP motor and a regular 330 motor. You already have the DME for it so you'd be all set.

    Hey. Thereís a thought.

    "ZHP is a garbage option anyway- just some cosmetic upgrades with a different cam and diff to claw back some of the performance lost fitting those hideous and heavy wheels. Any 330 with a 3.46 diff will smoke a ZHP every time. The whole Mafia thing reeks of childish behavior." - anonymous E46 fanatic
