Talking You wanna do what with what???

Well I blow a head gasket. Well I assume I did (milky oil) but it's time to do what I wanted to do in the first place. I'm going to just say the short version and you guys just be honest and tell me if it can be done and any thing I should know. I've done a lot of research and I know some of the best info comes from here. I might post on BForums but I don't know. I like it here.

I want to build a m50b28 with m3 cams and a crankshaft from a e46 330i. I'm going to get custom rods and pistons. Pretty much upgrade everything. I was told about a company that makes pistons and rods but I can't remember the name, "C" something "P", I think. I'm looking for m3 cams on ebay and anywhere else. Is there somewhere else I should look? Arkansas is short on BMW's, especially e36. Anywho, that's all, if you need more details, just ask. Thanks for the help.

The car is a 95 325i Vert. Build date 2/94.

Mein Auto: 330ti
Hey hey hey, read my build thread. I made a 3.0L stroker from a E46 330i crank, and I actually made a separate very detailed thread on info about this stroker build.

also while you are busy reading,

Read that like 50 times, I covered all the basic things you need to know. It's a easy build. You don't need custom anything


P.S. A M50B28 would mean you used a M52B28 crank from a E36 328i. A M50B30 is what you will have with from a M54B30 crank from a E46 330i.

Orrr...swap in an lsx or s52/s54. These seem to be the most common and best value swaps out there.. Just a suggestion, in case you're not skilled in the engine rebuild area, or if you want a lot more power.
