This is the 1M forum, I think you'd get better support in the correction section.

That being said, you should definitely go for an s65

s65 would be the way to go if you wanted an interesting swap and you have plenty of money

Maybe this thread will inspire you (e82 with s65):

Why not the new Cummins Turbo Diesel 6.7L. Tons of torque and the chicks love 'em!

Sell your car and buy a 135i. Would be the dumbest engine swap ever done in the history of mankind.

Well, maybe not in same category as 6.7L Cummins Diesel. Clear that Cummins swap would be unique.
