BMW M3 E36 with a Coyote V8

This BMW M3 E36 was built by Tarmac Offensive Motorsports in Lake in the Hills, Illinois. The factory inline-six is long gone and replaced with a Ford 5.0 L Coyote V8 that made 430 horsepower to the rear wheels thanks to ARP hardware, ACL trimetal race bearings, and custom tune. Behind the engine sits a Ford MT-82 six-speed manual transmission with custom driveshaft and reinforced M3 rear end. They installed the engine and transmission using custom mounts, intake, oil pan, exhaust headers, and wiring harness. The steering column needed to be moved over due to the engine’s width. One of the most striking change is Rocket Bunny’s new Pandem E36 M3 wide body kit with a set of Stance Suspension adjustable coilovers. For braking the company adapted a Mustang Cobra hydroboost system and used a set of M5 calipers, Stoptech rotors, Hawk pads on all four corners.

    This engine swap would be a natural for a BMW E39 and E60s because here in Australia Ford used the German made ZF 6 speed manual and auto transmissions mated to the coyote engine in Ford Performance Vehicles aka FPV. which may be a lot less fabrication.
