the M50 is better engine... but you can have just as much fun with the M20 and some cheap headers, cam, stroker crank, chip. plus the M20 is very reliable and easy to work on.

just because its newer, and has a bit more power than the 325i m20, it haves more weight and restrictions with the computer, the whole design was shitty,with all that plactic covering shit, thats why they did not stick with it, even the e36 m3 for being an m3 sucked ass, still fast but no multi throttle body system. if your an e30 owner and want to make it go faster, it is not cheaper and better to put a m50 in, a m20 with a little mods will do just as good or better. if some one wanted to drop some cash down for an m50 theyd be better off buying a strokers kit for their m20

if you think putting in a cam is a lot of work and swaping engines isnt, have you ever done either? id rather put a cam in, or a new head. remember 200 dollars what what i am working with, but if some one wants to sell me a m50 for 200, sure

Haha, who is this guy? Listen, I was giving my opinion, not telling you what to do, so get down off your high horse and relax. And if you think $200 is going to be enough to do your head and cam swap, by all means, go at it, let me know how far you get.

hahahha! last I checked a rebuilt head was $1,100 cdn, and changing the cam is the easy part but they will run you another $500
