Careful calling people names here... you wouldn't believe the half-ass threads I've seen not just on BF but many other places.

Now, if you look at your other thread, you will see that I attempted to help you, without saying what most would say, "search."

To the OP, you can modify any of your posts for two months, including the title, so, if you want/need help, I'd suggest simply hitting the "edit" button, and fixing the first post of this thread.

Meanwhile we can only guess at the question, so, here's a guess at an answer, found simply by typing /swap f3 in the bestlinks ...

- What engine swaps are most recommended (1) (2) (3)

See also:
- Summary advice to provide users who suspect a major engine repair due to overheating (1) (2) (3) (4) & how to test an engine for a blown head gasket, cracked heads, a warped block, stripped head bolt threads, cam seizures, contaminated bearings, coolant hydrolock, or piston, ring, or valve damage (1) (2) & what are the major factors in deciding whether to rebuild the engine, replace the engine, or sell the car (1) & a DIY for replacing the I6 M54 head gasket (1) (2) & replacing the V8 M62TU head gasket (1) & why these engines are so prone to heat-related damage in the first place (1) & welding the crack between cylinder #3 and the water jacket on the exhaust side (1) & what engine swaps are most recommended (1) (2) (3) & where to obtain a new or rebuilt head (1) replacement short block or long block (1) (2) & how to lift & remove the engine (1) & the most recent real-world results from the last 50 people faced with similar blown engine problems from which this advice came from (1) (2) (3) (4) (5) (6) (7) (8) (9) (10) (11) (12) (13) (14) (15) (16) (17) (18) (19) (20) (21) (22) (23) (24) (25) (26) (27) (28) (29) (30) (31) (32) (33) (34) (35) (36) (37) (38) (39) (40) (41) (42) (43) (44) (45) (46) (47) (48) (49) (50)

Edit:
I just ran into the other thread ... which I post here for others to reference ... to save time & effort...
> 5 Series > E39 (1997 - 2003) > 00 528 to 530 swap
