It's been a fun summer with my E30, but it's time to move onto a new project.
For sale is a complete M52 swap for any E30. This swap is complete from the air intake straight back to the exhaust tip and everything in between.
M52B28, 100% rebuilt using all OEM components. Main bearings, con rod bearings, piston rings, valves guides etc etc. Vanos is rebuilt with a complete Dr. Vanos kit. Broken in using the motoman method, first oil change at 30km, switched to Redline 10w-40 at ~1000km. Have approx 2000km on the rebuild.
Has been upgraded with S52 cams, M50 intake, RichieS99 cold air intake (modified to have filter in brake duct area, enclosed in a splash/rock shield)
The exhaust is eBay long tube headers into single 3" stainless pipe all the way back. Magnaflow cat, Borla muffler in middle and another magnaflow muffler out back. Only uses the front O2 Sensors (which are new).
OBD II computer with EWS delete, rear O2 delete. Tuned for M50 intake, S52 cams and the headers. The tuning was done by TRM.
My E30 is an early model, so the wiring adapter is the rectangular 10 pin. If your E30 is a late model you will need to make your own adapter. I can help you make yours if requested, it is easy and well documented on R3V.
E36 328i ZF manual transmission and driveshaft. Shifter not included, you reuse the one in your car. If your car is an automatic, I can add all the components to convert your car to manual for extra cost.
The swap has been a helluva lot of fun. It has only been used to go to and from the racetrack/autox, as well as a cruising some country back roads. Been dead reliable, the only time it ever gave me a problem was when the ECU +ve terminal came off the battery at a Trillium ADS, and the starter quit working (replaced with new 3 months ago).
Price is $3000 firm. The engine will not be removed until a 50% deposit is payed. I would be more then happy to take prospective buyers out in the car for demonstrations (dry days only though, Starspecs don't like cold, let alone snow lol). PM works, or reach me at 416 357 1922.
