    Hi All, I was wondering if anyone on here would be able to give me some advice on buying a 1997 BMW e38 728i with high mileage. The car currently has around 210k miles on it, I have seen lots online however suggesting that these engines are great when looked after. The car has seen 3 owners in...
  2. BMW Tuning Forum
    Hey guys. I am new to this forum and to the E36 ownership. I have just bought a e36 touring 320i with the M52B20, and I can say the car is lovely, but since I like towing stuff like caravans/bigger trailers I would like to increase the overall power. I have read a few post on the forum and saw...

    Hello all, First time posting so hopefully don’t break any rules. My friend owns a BMW E36 328i and as the title suggests it’s a 3.2L stroker. Fully forged internals, K&N air filter, Magnaflow 3” straight pipe (tho I do believe it is a fake, did they even make that?) and apparently an...

    Hello forum. I have been noticing this really annoying rattle coming from my engine near back of the engine 5-6 cylinder close to where the intake mounts to engine. There is no rattle on cold start and the sound doesn't come from the front of the engine so i think i can rule out the timing chain...

  8. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    A little bit over a year ago, I started engine swapping my manual 1997 318i. I picked up an automatic 1998 328i, and swapped my 5spd trans onto it and put in in the chassis. I also purchased a K+DCAN Cable from eBay to plug into the 20pin under the hood for ews rolling code alignment. I now have...

    Hi, looking to fit an M52 (Vertically) in a Kit car. My head scratchers at the moment are: 1. Oil Pan and pickup (plan is to modify the M52 stuff). 2. Oil flow from head to sump (haven't got the engine yet so not sure if pooling is likely). 3. Gearbox angle. I read here...
  11. BMW Engine Conversions
    Hi, I'm looking to fitting a M52B28 in a kit car. Space is tight so I've been looking for an engine cross-section (I guess a M50/52/54 would work) with key dimensions so I can measure up properly. Can't remember where but I have only been able to find the following: Front to back of engine =...

    I have a well-loved 95 325 conv orignal M50 engined car from California - with recent clutch and driveline. I had tech install a used Getrag 5 speed at clutch replacement, but now 2nd gear is fussy - feels as though synchro is going bad. Rather than rebuilding or trying to find decent used...

    Here is the story. An otherwise unmodded 1998 328is had M3 cams in it. Having never done cams in an M50 series (I know, it's an M52), I enlisted the help of a friend who has done that in many of these engines. With his guidance, we swapped back to stock cams. No broken cams, we timed the Vanos...
