    morning people i am currently rebuilding my 328i which is in the projects section. i am thinking about trying to source some us m3 cams however i dont know much about them... so a couple of questions.

    which engine code is the us m3 engine? ive heard it could possibly an s50? could someone confirm.

    also is any headwork required for the to fit or is bolt in??

    and also what sort of gains could be expected?

    and finally any good place to hunt for them? and a possible price..

    cheers in advance adam

    You can get the cams from ebay.com from sellers in the USA

    Either S50 B30 US or S52 B32 US cams will fit the 328. No extra work is required, but the S52 cams should really be fitted with their matching springs, although some people have used the standard M52 springs with no problems.

    You should be able to find some used cams for around £350 inc shipping and taxes
