Cylinder Head Compatability (M50 Engine)
Sorry for the double post. I put this in the e34 section, but received no responses there. Here goes...
So i recently popped the head off of my m50 2.5L nonvanos engine because of a what I thought (hoped) was a leaking headgasket. Turns out the head was cracked, too.
So now I'm in the market for a replacement head. I'm not looking to do a big performance upgrade, I just want to get back on the road for as cheap as possible.
I have heard that the heads on many of the 1990s BMW six cylinder engines are compatible if you swap the cams. But I'm not sure which ones swap.
Any advice? Any links? I have not been able to find much, but maybe I'm just searching the wrong terms.
