Feeler: complete M52B28 with M3 cams, M50 manifold, JC cam kit software, ITG CAI, 5sp



Hi All;

I'm in the process of finializing the deal to upgrade to a 3.2Ltr and AA stg. 2 turbo. The following I'll be selling, preferrably all together:

- BMW M52B28 1997 Aluminum block engine in excellant condition with 106,000 miles. Engine is complete with all accessories including intake manifold and exhaust headers.
- Engine contains BMW e36 3.2L M3 cams, professionally installed and running flawlessly for almost 1/2 a year (cams were originally purchased 1/2 a year ago and had 30,000 miles on them. I will also include the 2.8 cams)
- M50 intake manifold
- OBDII ECU with Jim Conforti 2.8Ltr cam kit software and matching shark injector
- Wiring harness for OBDII
- 5 spd BMW transmission (106,000 miles)
- M52 (2.8 & 3.2) TB
- M52 (2.8 & 3.2) MAF
- JC ITG CAI and heat shield
- ACS removal intake elbow (original ACS will be included)
- M50 fuel rail cover
- Guage cluster (with matching milage - in km and km/h)


This engine and modified software produces around 250 hp at the crankshaft with over 210 hp at the wheels!!! (M3 territory)
see: http://www.sharked.com/pdfs/28cams.pdf


The only reason I'm selling is since I'm upgrading to a 3.2Ltr (M52B32) US spec M3 engine and AA turbo. This engine has never been abused, in fact I've always babied this car. Oil changed every 3,000 miles. Car has never been tracked either. I can do a leakdown and compression tests if required but will guarantee a fully functional product. The engine and transmission are originally from my car.

My email address is tom@fieldofwebs.com. Make me an offer on this, I prefer to sell this as a whole. I'm looking for around $4,500.00 (CND) +shipping. obo. Local buyer preffered (GTA).

Thanks,

This is a great upgrade for anyone with a 96+ e36 318i or 323i, or 1.9 Z3.

That aluminum block makes this engine more then worth it. They're so rare and you save so much weight. I wish I had an aluminum block.

Roughly the same power as an M3 engine, for so much cheaper.

Just giving you a free bump.

Thanks nelson...

Also to clarify, this is the highly upgradable <b>single</b> VaNoS motor (not the M52B28TU)...

Yes, it would... you also get the NEW generation 5 speed transmission (same as e36 M3 96+ US spec).

Another benefit to using this in a 95 or older is that you can <b>legally</b> remain with OBD I. This will give you even better performance. A collegue of mine in the US has a 2.8Ltr track car that with OBD I is putting down 230 at the wheels (RWHp). In addition to mine he has a ported and polished head, 3.5" HFM and 24lbs injectors, OBD I tunned chip and fuel piggyback. I'd nock off $500.00 if you take everything without the ECU/harness.

Also keep in mind that the 2.8Ltr shares a lot of common ground with the M3 (e36 96+ US spec) including headers, throttle body, hfm, airbox, head, etc... the only major difference is the bottom end and the cams. Again, this is a 100% Jim Conforti tunned package (2.8Ltr M50 manfiold and M3 cam kit ) that saves you from putting together your own and yealds a gain of 40 RWHp over a stock 2.8!!!

Perfect motor, Great condition, Excellant price!
(I'm taking a loss of close to 2,500 in upgrades and parts). My loss, your gain!

Motor is still in car now, so if the weather is good and a prospective buyer want's to see it we can go for a drive...

Also keep in mind that you will very likely be able to sell your old motor to offset the price paid for this one! Great for E30 or lower ccm E36! Most importantly you don't need to worry about non-matching components in the engine! Everything is properly tunned and runs flawlessly!!!

<b>Reliable, strong M3 performance for 1/2 the price!!!</b>

Wow sounds like a good deal? Would this all "bolt right up" to my car (98 323is)? I am such a fan of all motor cars.

Yes, should bolt right on. Your car already is OBDII, but this way you get the 2.8Ltr ECU as well specifically tunned for the M50 manifold and the M3 cams. You also get the upgraded M3 (3.2 and 2.8) 5 speed transmission.

Best regards,

T.
