1987 BMW 325 with Nissan RB26DETT engine swap

It is always fun to read people’s comments on a swap such as this. BMW purists will absolutely hate this swap. Either way this owner decided to take a 1987 BMW 325IS and swap a Nissan RB26DETT into it. The BMW uses a modified RB26DETT transmission and an E30 M3 LSD. I sure hope the engine is severely detuned because the 284 horsepower the engine is reportedly putting out is very weak for this platform.
