The difference will be huge... The 4 cyl just can't duplicate the torque and power of the 6. With a turbo an m44 might get there but even with a dasc the m44 gives up torque and hp to the stock m52.

Depending on what you have to pay for the wreck this may be a good opportunity to start your turbo build with a better baseline.
