1995 E320 Sedan
I just want to go with the easier way of getting at least 50 more power swapping the e3.6 brings a poterntial 278hp and a turbo could do more than 300hp. Which ever is easier is what I would like to go with, both are Time consuming and slightly pricey.Turning it up is the fun bit lol. A c36 is a great engone for torque but they are bored to the limit of the block and youd never be able to do much in the way of turbo without cracking a bore. Dont let that discourage you tho its an excellent swap for easy power and grunt. Headgasket is like 3 or 4 more steps after valve cover mate dont let the whole picture of an engine scare you from jobs that are quiet easy with the right tools. As for turbo lag that is entirely up to turbo size. If you not gonna go much over 3-400 whewl then you could fit up a small gt25 or 28 and be on boost by like 2000 rpm or even less with a killer power and torque band. The m104 heads flow like no tomorrow so spool issues are only a thing with big turbos. Even with a 3582 youd be on boost by like 2500-3k and can rev them to 7k no problem. Thats a pretty damn usable powerband if you ask me with plenty of stock low end grunt.
