There is a small block Chevy conversion kit as well. It will give you all of the performance and save you a load of cash vs. staying pseudo authentic in building a clone.

You can put anything in e30 from I4 to V10

^Peter is correct, you can fit nearly anything into an E30, and there should be plenty of info on BMW forums about engine swaps.

yea I did some research and found out that there are many different option that can be applied to this car engine wise. Do any of you know how hard it is to do electrical wiring on this vehicle as well. The only things that work on my dash are the speedometer, rpms, and the stereo...everything else doesnt do anything.

Wiring is easy and straight forward. Get yourself a Bentley manual or download the schematics, if you are so inclined. The nylon gears in the back of the speed fall apart over time.
