View Full Version : Anyone considering doing M50 conversion!

08-21-2003, 08:28 AM
Ok so i am doing this M50 conversion thingy myself! I decided after lots of research that i can do this! So I will also be selling a easy wiring connector for anyone wanting to do this conversion! The wiring is the hardest part of this whole conversion but i have a way to make a wiring adapter that will plug into the M50 wiring harness then run and plug into the E30 wiring harness! No splicing no cutting no muss no fuss! Water proof short proof! And easy to remove if ever needed! LOL Now i just need to figure out how to convert my M50/B32 to OBDI so that i can attach this wiring harness! BLAH If it aint one thing its another!

just wondering; but isn't the S50 the 3.2L M3 motor?

No, the "S" designations are for the Euro motors only... an S50 is the 3.0L (286HP) and S52 is the 3.2L (321HP). A lot of people in the U.S. use the "S" nominer since they only have 1 kind of E36 M3... here in Canada we got both the Euro cars and the U.S versions so the designations need to be more specific.
