: old M50 non vanos engine

Need help, what parts of the engine can I sell so I can get some extra funds for the touring. This is my bros old engine with a head gasket problem. I thought I read somewhere the intake manifold and oil pan are used for a conversion of a different model.
Thanks in advance.

Any problems with it?

Overheating, from what I read, headgasket or worse a cracked head.

Not sure about the oil pan but the intake is used for an OBD2 to OBD1 conversion. It think it is on the M52 engines. The 3 series guys would probably be interested.

Is the MAF sensor good?

Sorry chief but no MAF sensor. My bro used his old one.
