From the article: This E28 528i is offered by its BMW specialist shop owner and builder who describes at as clean, fast, comfortable, reliable and “much more engaging than an E28 M5.” Starting from a clean, high-spec RHD donor car, it’s been fitted...

  9. BMW Z Series - Tech Talk Z1, Z3, Z4, Z8, Z9
    I was driving at about thirty mph this morning when there was a metallic rattle (sounded like a chain failing?) from the engine then the engine lost all power and stopped. Before this it had been running a bit lumpily at idle but wasn't making any untoward noises at all. Cranking it over gave a...

    I stress I'm not gonna do this but reading all the engine conv threads has anyone done this is it possible, I'm thinking e36 engines because of cost, also if you want a 300bhp 330 you have to supercharge which means a few grand, again I say I ain't planning this I'd much rather a e46 m3

    I'm looking at M3s at the moment and would appreciate a bit more info on common engine problems. Apparently both suffer from bottom end wear if used hard and typically would benefit from some new bearings around the 120-150k mileage range before things start to break. Can this be confirmed? I...
  14. BMW Tuning Forum
    Ive been thinking about this for a while instead of doing a M50 conversion and from what I can see only from pics the stud patterns look the same on the heads so would it be a simple case of putting a S50 manifold on and getting a S50 throttle cable and rig up the pipe work job done ?:confused

    Been searching for ARP rod bolts for a S50 M3 motor, they are around £100 before postage. So trying to get a good price and searching the interweb I found they are cheaper in the USA (suprise suprise) even with the postage they are cheaper. Not 100% if they are the right bolts down to them not...
  16. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E21
    Its time to get this done! recent events lead me to believe its not, if, but when! I've been looking across the web for a set of ARP conecting rod bolts for an E36 M3 evo, S50B32. I can't seem to find the correct bolts??? Will it be the same bolts as for 3.0 M3? If some one knows where they...

    I'm looking to build a full track/drift car and have chosen the e30 as a good platform to start :) What I want to know is which is the best engine to swap? For out of the box power, and possible forced induction in distant future I've never done an engine swap before, but I have loads of good...
