    Lol, see, I lucked out. The previous owner put the engine in the car. His friend blew the engine by money shifting while he was sleeping in the passenger seat on the way back from NOPI in 9/04.

    That was one of the main reasons why I bought that car. I don't race the car much to at all. I'm on court supervision. However It totally pulls harder. I wouldn't ever recommend buying the engine unless you have to get a new engine.

    If willing to drop about ten grand. Turbo it, but make sure you get it done at a very good shop. Are you near Illinois? I know a place.

    I'm getting my car dinoed pretty soon. I'll PM you the results or something.

    whoa whoa whoa, you weren't kidding when you said it wasn't cheap eh... lol. 8large...

    if you don't mind my asking, they said the engine was 8k, what was the total cost of engine/installment when you were finished, and is/was it worth it? Do you smoke other m's? (sorry for all the questions, very curious and seriously debating this option, looks like a real winner)

    It's not quite just a built engine. I just didn't have enough room to write everything in my sig. The engine I have in my car is a Remanufactured S50 engine From Bavarian Auto Recycling, with the performance upgrade. Here's what they say about it on their site, and it really is not cheap.

    If you're looking to get more power out of your BMW, then upgrade to our Performance Option and increase your horsepower by 20%. This option provides a substantial increase in performance while preserving the 5 year warranty, factory longevity, and emission standards. The upgrade includes flow-tested CNC cylinder head porting & hand polishing, Bavarian Performance camshaft, MaxSil pistons with Tefcote, Sealed Power piston rings, and precision balancing. Proprietary Bavarian CNC porting provides optimized turbulence, maximum air flow and precision consistency between ports.

    hey Ianiac, how much did it cost to get your motor "built" and what exactly goes into that process? ...what do you "get" from that procedure?... my engine is not granting me very much confidence as of late and I'm very curious about my options.

    Hey, I love absolutely love the flywheel and would definately recommend it. My engine's an S50 and I got the S52 clutch. I like the set up a lot.

    Yeah I was in it last Saturday. It was a great time. Here some pictures from the day.
