so, do you need anything else for the swap, or is this it????

threethirtyi 11-05-2006 01:21 AM

Suprano 11-05-2006 06:28 PM

whats that sensor by the alternator. when u converted it to obd1 did u tap the head and the thermostat for the dual temp senors. or did u just leave it.

do u have the tranny>?

mmmmm... by the way i dont think thats a s52. on the s52's the oil filler cap is closest to the firewall not the radiator.
here take a look this is actually a s52, from a 1997

The sensor by the alternator is an air temp sensor, which plugs into the stock air box. Totally nit required (it's for collant by-pass in the TB).

The engine in this thread is an s52 ... oil cap is right. The picture you posted a link to as an s50 (obd1 3.0L M3 motor)

Im still wondering about the oil filter cap, should it not be aluminum?

I was just looking at the same thing, the 323/328's have the plastic one, the M3 has the aluminum one......

JUS_CRZN 12-06-2006 11:55 PM

I have a 99 3.2L sitting in front of me and its aluminum..........
Hmmmmm.

Vin on the back side of the head will confirm all.
Plug the number into carfax, and it will give the eng details.

in a way it looks like a s52 but,
It has OBDII coils with an OBDI coil harness, as the OBDII valve cover is not notched properly for the harness and the OBDI harness runs a little different than the 2. Also has the 3.2's 21.5# pink top fuel injectors.

Looks like an OBDI 3.2 to me. That plumbing near the vanos cover is pretty sketchy though.

I'd get an engine code off the block or a VIN number if I were you so you can be positive. Anybody can Frankenstein a motor.
s50's do have metal oil filter tops.

Yup, all M3 motors (s50 and s52), as well as 325s were metal. I suppose that the 328 filter housing would fit, but why was it swapped?
