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)
