    that is correct. M42 is a 2cam. M40 is 8v. M44 is 1.9 and M42 is 1.8 very similar but heard that M44 head doesn't like revs . and if you go to this link http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...d.php?t=433471 you'll see what can be done with ours 4cyl engines
    When u do it U'r self It is much more satisfying when it all adds up and works


    Taking u'r car 2 garage for mod's is like sending u'r kid 2 boarding school
    Doing mod's u'rself is like homeschooling + u get 2 c u'r kid growing nd growing

    maybe its different when you turbo charge it.... but my M44 loves 4000 rpm to 6250 rpm !!

    especially after a fesh oil change like now :P

    I'd say read the whole post , U'll b amazed

    U see how complicated piping is ? and u have to run a downpipe aswell and all the intercooler piping also is very complicated with sharp bends and many bits has to be removed . I was thinking tu put turbo as close to the engine and raise the bonnet where turbo sits . ofcourse these are just thoughts
    When u do it U'r self It is much more satisfying when it all adds up and works
