hi i have a 1989 525i M20 saloon and am fed up changing the heads due to cracking. I have put three reconditioned heads onto this car in the last four years. instead of scrapping the car, which i dont want to do, i was looking into putting the newer M50 engine in and was wondering will it fit straight in? If it does fit in what else will i need for it? can anyone help
thanks

You will be best to get a e34 donor car with a m50 fitted, that way you will have everything you need, I can't comment on the wiring loom though for the engine though, may be a fair bit different but still do-able.

You will need the engine, DME, engine loom, possible gearbox, prop for starters.

Try picking up a e34 MOT failure
