Anyone hear of any problems , specially because it is all aluminum?

If I remember well , the GM Cadillac aluminum engine was really bad.

So this engine is the same as a M50 but it is aluminum instead, which is alot lighter!

If so This is very interesting for my E30.
well since it is an aluminum block, if you crack it your screwed...but other than that, i havent heard anything is basicaly a 328 engine but with an aluminum block...the 2.8 isnt going to make your car into a superfast car,its only like 40hp more than a e30 325
