complete m52b28

I have a complete m52 from a 1998 328i, been sitting in my aunt's garage for a couple years but now I'd like it gone. Has approximately 170k on it. Don't remember which accessories it has on it.

$250

I will be going to see the engine soon to take pics, and see what accessories I still have for all that having been asking.

None that I know of. It's been sitting in a garage for 3 years, so I would definitely recommend a little oil in the cylinders before firing for the first time, as well as an oil change or 2 after it starts running. I bought a 328i for parts when I did my swap. I remember the engine running very well. I kept it for all these years as a backup motor or to build it for boost.

As for drop and play, depends on your application. Drop and play into an e36 328i? Yes. Drop and play to swap into an e30? Not so much lol.

absolutely in consideration...i am currently digging up a baby s52 for a cost that is out of this planet. if that flops, and you still got this...*ring ring*

on a side note, i heard once upon a time, or read perhaps that this engine isnt THAT much different to the m50tu.

now im sure 2.8 vs 2.5 is big, but is it that big?

well if you've got an s52 lined then all power to you brotha but m52 it is for mee, and although that mayy be the case between the two, that only applys if you're running it stock.. if you still have the m50 in the e30 this spring/summer ill race you and we can find out .. fair enough? lol

well...my m50 is going to die soon. i have to put in at least 5L of oil every 1.5 weeks. oil is pissing out of the head, but damn this bitch still pulls strong. lol...

dissembler, im still waiting to hear from the dumb ass who severely under priced the s52...ill let you know about this engine by the weekend if you still have it.

Only difference between an M52 and USS52 are the cams and .4L For the going rate of S52s, not worth the price IMO

Not sure, haven`t looked into M50TU, but I imagine there isn`t much difference like M52TU vs M54

Not really, no. If there are any other significant differences someone more knowledgeable will need to chime in

^^^^No replacement for displacement and a stronger forged crank/rods is all i can think of btw for anyone hungry for a 3.2L there's a dude on bf.c in detroit that has a s52 bottom end for a good price....Might be worth it if somebody's willing to make the drive down...think he's flexible too pricewise!

M52s have forged cranks, not sure about the con.rods

If you want to try and sell other things, whether affiliated with the seller or not please create another thread and leave that stuff out of mine.

They most definitely are forged

I'm not trying to take away from your sale, just informing....just like I would inform people who were looking for a m52 to check out this thread.

GLWS.......
