Does anyone have any experience with Euro spec 3.0 S50 Single Vanos Cams.
My question is: Are these cams compatible with a US spec M52 head.

even though S50B30 is also a single VANOS, I don't think they are compatible, since VANOS system on S50B30 is more advanced than on M52s
also from these sketches, they look differently too

That is excellent information - you are right - while the Euro M52 and USA M52 have identical camshafts and valve train assembly, the Euro S50 motor is completely different than the USA S50 motor.

The cams are very different on those engines.
For an M52 2.8 L you need S52 3.2L cams (PM me, I've got a set...)
