Hello dis is my first message so go easy, any way i have a 1995 520i 2L E34 m50 petrol i fitted a engine out of a 97 320i 2L petrol E36 m52, i swapped the manifolds, sump, sensors, etc of the m50 engine onto the m52 engine because the wiring loom is different and cant be fitted off m52 to the 520 electrics but any way the car wont run right is like its down on power and its like its throwing into much petrol but it idles ok but as soon as i drive it its about 50% down on power i think its the timing is different and its not suiting the new engine but it cant be adjusted any ideas please?
