and its therefore time for more displacement! I was wondering what my best options are now, so far I've looked at m52b28, LS1, M62B44. any other suggestions you might have? which one of these options are the easiest to do other than the b28 of course..

thanks in advance!

buy static's s50, its a steal and it pretty much drops in (will have to do some wiring since your car is obd2)

Hahaha look at these guys :P

How'd you blow it?? It depends how much money you have to spend...whether you want a real m3 or not... :P

I'd love to see the LS1 swap on a local car, my only fear would be gas consumption.

I'd be more afraid of tire consumption.

Well I was not going to say anything but since everyone else is I will do likewise.

I know of an S52/ZF Tranny package for sale with UUC LTW flywheel, alu rad, AA level 2 shift kit, Evosport Pullies, Clutch fan delete, M50 manifold, AA CAI. Might be able to separate if you don't need the tranny. Good Price. PM me if your interested, ill get you in contact.

no idea, probably just age? I just hit 300k on my odo, was on my cool down lap at mosport, at around 3500rpms in 3rd gear, and out of the blue the 5th piston shot out of the block, when it happened I looked in my rear view mirror saw a trail of oil/coolant and new it was time for a new engine. piston came out in 3 pieces. Pretty sure it was the connecting rods giving in..

I have decided to not invest too much money in this swap since im aiming to get another car next year. going with a m52b28, adding m3 cams, m50 manifold, getting my tune reflashed by MarkD for the new engine and cams. an s52 is not worth the money if your swapping imho, a 328 with a few mods can get to us spec m3 level for a fraction of its cost. if i want an m3 engine Id buy a s50b32, unfortunately i don't have 6 grand lol
