    Want to start by thanking all the guys who posted replies to my last thread, amazing food for thought!

    I'm determined to make a project of this, It's interesting about the U.S. M3 cams, is this a good idea, where should I go for them and after which chip should I try. I've heard good things about Evolve chips. Not looking to break any records but got some ideas and would love more feedback. Again thank you to everyone so far.

    you'd need the S50 cams, I don't know if anyone has them over here but you could try Fleabay

    bimmerforums . com or other US forums keep a close eye out they pop up now and then from about 300 to 400 USD plus shipping on mine was 80usd strapped to a piece of timber so it don't snap
    you need to trust the buyer and see some good photos the numbers on the cam casting will mean nothing as they are ground from the same billet as M50/M52 cams as ronnie said an M50 motor needs S50 cams

    you also need correct tools, instructions etc to fit them or get someone good to do them - remember they are hollow and can snap eaisly

    this is the method and pics I have used a few times for the actual cam removal/install procdure and has worked well for me,
    infact I can actualy do it on my own now as long as i dont drop tools etc on the ground as you need to hold them cams steady so they dont snap
