    Active Autowerke attempting to swap an S65 V8 into a widebody E36 chassis and then supercharge it

    This is simply a little teaser but we had to report on it as there have not been too many S65 swaps that we have seen. In addition, swaps that are then boosted. That is exactly what Active Autowerke is attempting to do with this widebody E36. Will they pull it off? It's Active, so we doubt they would be teasing if they did not intend to back it up. How far along this is we do not know and they have not released any other details other than a photo of the S65 in the E36 engine bay and publicly stating their intention to boost it.

    Just wondering what they are using for tuning.

    LS swap would be easier but this is oh so sexy! I wonder if they will use original ecu.

    Hey guys just to clear some details up, active is involved with the project, but from what I'm told (source from within Active) they are NOT building this in house, but supporting a dealer.

    I'm working on it, I need to get a few details swapped too. We have had a slammed week, and a few big projects here as well, and the summer heat has not been kind to us down here in FL!

    If I hear any more info on this project, I will update this thread Click here to enlarge

    Is this the same car I saw a video of on Youtube? It was a black E36 in Romania or something that had the S65 swap and was running. The gauge cluster had quite a few errors on the display but it started right up, was loud as $#@! too.

    I sure would, I scheduled my wife's c-section down in hollywood. Maybe while shes in the OR I can sneak out and go see active autowerkes. She wont know I left, she'll be so drugged up anyway!

    Electronically that's not particularly difficult to do - the E36 wiring is fairly simple to integrate with; you could build a system that plugs in, runs the full S65 plus all the stock chassis functions in a straightforward fashion. Actually, swaps into E36 chassis are one of my favorites as they work out so nice.
