"Possible" if you have enough money for custom work. Feasible? I seriously doubt it.

I'm sure it's possible if you fabricate your own engine mounts and all that good stuff. The BMW engine is probably an inline V6 so it's going to be a lot bigger than the 4-banger that is in your Civic.

Think it is possible but i think you will have to do some cutting to make the engine fit and also 528i engine is a 2.8 and the engine might fit into the a 2.3 civic although you will need custom engine mounts and you will have to find parts such as axles and brakes that you will be able to fit to the civic. Although i think its not really worth it, just better to put a standard engine.

There's absolutely no reason to do it outside of the cool factor. I'd only do it if I was in technical school and got class credit for it. It's a...what, 220hp engine? You can get that with nitrous and maintain driveability. With the BMW engine, the car will be a lot heavier, less reliable, get worse mileage, and not be much faster. If you want a fast Civic, start with nitrous and sticky tires.
