hey guys ive had a 91 525i for a year and a half.
m50b25 5spd 260k mi :(
got it @ 256k been sitting since i blew a head gasket.
plan on replacing HG and re milling the head through an acquaintance, also and able to get ahold of another m50b25 w/ 130k miles on it out of a 93 5 series.
i've joined to gain knowledge. i love my bimmer. and want to see her run again. :cry:
so i guess i'll probably end up reposting else where but a couple of ?s.

would i need anything else to swap in the vanos motor (my old one is nonvanos)

how long do you think my 260k engine would hold up after its minor rebuild?

and where can i get ahold of engines for sale online? (s38b38)

are the m50 motors reliable turbocharged?

again i look forward to meeting all of you and hope i can get some help. :)
