I have to defend the sound of this engine. I have a friend with an 850 that has the BMW V 12 in it and it sounds awesome I can't imagine that the V 10:
with sound anything but great! This is not the classic American v8 muscle car and it won't sound like one but I think the conversion concept is very interesting.
with a custom built gearbox to suit the car weight difference and stuff it would fit and I've deiced against using the running gear from the Beamer and find some axles and suspension etc from a Mustang tuners any ideas on what to use? oh and just to end this comment here's some engine **** : http://www.tuningnews.net/news/08010...w-m5-hr-04.jpg

Don't let the ignorant get ya down josh, it's clear that some people don't even know who the stig is much less how well a BMW motor can run or that a few world class cars have used BMW engines......even the fastest. Mclaren I think used a BMW V8 to build the fastest car in the world, it can even beat up on a veyron.
The mclaren f1 was bmw powered but the worlds fastest car is a ssc ultimate aero and its chevy powered.I'm laughing at dyno run max torque of 497 at 6900rpm my small block makes more torque then that.One thing your not thinking about a early mustang has the aerodynamics of a brick over 160 you have no steering in one.
Do what you want. It is your car and your (soon to be emptied) bank account.
I was going to buy an E39 540I and drop the engine trans and rear suspension in my 57 bel air. But i got transferred across the country and had no where to store it for the time i was in South Carolina.... now I am in guam so it would have been 7 years instead of 3.
I figured, even with a generous "Oh F*&k" budget, that it would take about 7k for the fab to put that together and make it run right.
would have been one of a kind.
just asking about dropping a bimmer motor into a stang is complete disrespect to the mustang community. If you do hack up/ruin an american icon to attempt this garbage, please do not post it up on this forum.
