  • This is S14.net...........RIGHT?

    so why are all these "swap cars" allowed to post pictures of their used to be S14 powered car?

    i know, the s50 (e-33 m3 - half&half) and whatever else is great.......but the fact is.....it's not an s14!!!

    anyone else feel me????? :music:

    No offense non-s14 peoples.

    I remember when I joined this site 5 years ago that the mere mention of doing a swap was basically forbidden. Personally, I liked it that way as I guess you could label me a 'purist' and this was one site that I could talk about the E30 M3 with an S14 motor and not have to deal with all the swap talk.

    Oh well, I really don't want to go into it any further and ruffle any feathers, but suffice it to say that although I don't own the site and don't have any say-so in it, I would like the direction to follow what it is named after.

      I personally would never swap my S14 out but I don't feel that people that did should in any way feel that it was the wrong thing to do and be banned from posting pics, after all true purists might say that swapping your seats we recarros or changing the stock wheels isn't right either.

      Are you saying that if I drop the S14 into a Chevy Nova I could post pics of my it?

        ignorance is a bliss

        anyway, my guess is that when the site was created, there were virtually no swapped cars around, it was very expensive and almost unheard of. Maybe the e30m3 name was taken or the creator wanted to use s14.net instead, whatever, but as the technology moves on, so do other things in life. Nothing wrong with keeping the s14 if you enjoy it but sitting in the closet without knowing what's out there (talking reasonable - BMW motors in BMW cars) - reminds me of the great China wall. They thought there were the smartest, greates and most advanced, so they built the wall around them...we all know what happened next

            Swaps are like crutches for people who need massive torque to cover up their shitty driving.


            S14, who needs torque anyway?

                    I'm a purist too as far as the m3 goes. IF you want a swap that's fine with me, just keep it in a more run of the mill non-M e30. For those that say you have to have the power of a swapped car...I beg you to drive a well built and tuned s14. My s14 works quite well and adds to the experience of the m3, I love it probably just as much as the rest of the car itself

                      Granted, I'm new to the site, but I've never seen such a large group of adults get their feathers ruffled so easily.

                      As an S14 newbie, it's great to be able to see both sides of the coin, and frankly, I'm very happy that there's S14, S50, and S52 enthusiasts here.

                      Besides, why not simply ignore the post if it bother you?

                        Because threads are created for discussion. Without comments, then we would not have a forum. Let the clash continue.:duality:

                            Its cheaper than building an S14.
                            Sorry, but its the truth.
                            It also provides xtra parts left over from the swap.
                            Looking for a nice S14 long block from a swap here in socal.
                            Just a matter of time and I will have a spare. :jakeroutine:

                              It sure is tempting. I've never found a car guy that will tell you more power's a bad thing...
