Engine swaps

Some of you were talking about using that M70 for a swap. Here's a better solution:

It's a non-TU (no VANOS) lump, probably the most reliable evolution of the M62. The km on it are almost trivial. And it's already out of the car.

You know you want to...

That's the most reliable version of the M62? Really? I just spotted an E39 6 spd of that vintage...

How do you come to this conclusion?

Im sure the thinking is one less thing to go wrong. VANOS failures and problems do happen, but are rare, i.e I have never actually meet anyone who has had one other then on forums here and there.

Well that's why I ask, because so far as I can tell, the M62tu vanos is pretty bullet proof. Especially compared to the M52 guys.

Apart from reliability, I keep hearing that the 97/98 non-vanos M62s tend to dyno ~10hp better than the vanos ones, stock for stock.
