I've got an e36 325 coupe, and i wanted to add
more power. Changing the engine was an idea so
would a 1jz engine be a suitable option for a daily
drive? Or what engines exactly would be more
suitable for a daily drive?
No, would not work.
A 1jz swap is actually fairly common on E36s. It could be done to make a reliable daily while still being track-ready. It probably won't be the cheapest thing in the world, but it would make one hell of a fun car! Look up tommyfyeah on Youtube. He is actually selling a 1j setup right now for an E36. I'm not sure if it's been sold yet, though. It may be listed on throtl.com.
