BMW E30 with a Supercharged N62 V8

This BMW E30 was built by Jacob Sport in Lescar, France. The cutout in the hood reveals a Mercedes E55 AMG supercharger on top of a BMW 4.8 L N62B48 V8. The unique combination produces around 500 horsepower. The V8 also features M62 oil pump, lower compression from head gasket, and custom exhaust manifolds.

  1. How far did u drop the compression with a head gasket? I have a 08 b7 that im tryin to stick a b48 into. But I know that is 10.5 motor the b48.

  2. I’m just about to start a N62b44 engine swap into my 1985 BMW 318i. I’m trying my best to find out information on the engine mounts for this generation of v8’s. While there are a swarm of engine mounts available for the M62 engines, there are none for the N62 generation. I’m assuming that the M62 engine mounts will not work for the N62B44 engine in the 1985 BMW 318i. Is there any information about the engine mounting on this build?
