Also the cams are a bit hotter for turbo applications, and if your a baller like me you can thrown in an OBD1 S52 and blow by all the stock M3's (even the euros ).
Yes, he did say that !

Also a word of advice, if money has to be spent on your engine dont cheap out, the cheaper you go now..the more it might cost you later...this isnt like buying the headlights and stuff like that.
Sure. Ok so a complete new head is 1800 eh...but what about the bottom? (That's where the problem is apparently) How much is a COMPLETE COMPLETE engine rebuild where when I put it in, I know it's perfect? I didn't really push Charlie on the price of this cause we said putting in an old one is a lot cheaper, but now I'm having a change of mind.

1998 BMW 328is - summer
1992 Ford E250 Sportsmobile - daily
1993 BMW 525i - sold
1994 BMW 325i - sold
1992 BMW 325i - gone
1988 Mercedes Benz 190E 2.3-8V -
