Small question..

Is the S50B30us the same exact engine as the euro S50B30 just detuned or is it a totally different engine block itself and all its internals dis regarding the manifolds? An answer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

S50B30
The S50B30 is a 2,990 cc (182 cu in) higher output version of the M50 which powered the E36 M3 (except in North America). It produces 210 kW (282 hp), has a bore of 86 mm (3 in) and a stroke of 86 millimetres (3.4 in).[3] The limited edition "M3 GT" model from 1995 had different tune and produced 216 kilowatts (290 hp).[4]
Applications:
1992-1995 E36 M3 (except for North America)
[edit]S50B30US
The North American E36 M3 is powered by a detuned version of the S50 which produced 240 hp (180 kW).[5]
Applications:
1993-1995 E36 M3 (North America only)
To get the S50B30US to match specs for the S50B30 is by no means cost effective. Search for ITB's.

Euro S50 has a better flowing head, better cam, and none of the OBD2 emission stuff. IIRC the blocks are the same, heads are different, has better factory tuning and has ITBs

OBD II was mandatory in the US as of the 1996 model year.
