Thats a good idea. But the 525i pan, had the Windage tray riveted in , and in no way could fit in the 325i pan.
I don't plan on doing a lot of high Rpm work with this engine.

However, I have found a company that makes custom Crankscrapers. It's not a windage tray, but it would be better than nothing. I'm still on the fence either way about the stock windage tray.

From what I can tell, this problem is not too common with these motors. I was quite shocked when my replacement block had no mounts casted in it. It must have been from a very early 525i.
