Selling complete M72 w tran, computers and exhaust

I complete motor tran and exhaust fron a wrecked 01 750il. Was going to swap into my 540i but I think there is more work than I want to do to make it happen. The car only had approx 86k on it when pulled. Let me know if interested

That would be an M73TU.

You're right. My bad. So does that mean you're interested?

Nah but if you are in Marysville, MO, I know a 750 guy in KC. Not sure what his needs are at the moment.

Im in norcal. I may put this in my 540 but think I'd rather build the m62tu that's in it and not mess with the conversion.

Agreed. BIG time conversion with harness, DME and other module conversions/additions going from a V8 to, basically, two V6's. Then you would need a big time programming geek. Never seen it attempted myself. Let up know if you go that route.

Yeah. I'm in norcal. I was hoping for some feedback to get an idea of the value of everything. What do you think is fair?

Hard to price. It's a supply and demand issue and you won't find a line of folks, esp locally, looking for this engine. I had an M62 engine and tranny from a parts car and could not find a buyer the 4-5 months I had it. Unless you owned the car this all came from, or have the maintenance records, it's risky business for the buyer. Not trying to discourage the seller or buyer. Just my .02. Good luck to both.

also...

I bought a M73 from a junkyard about a year ago, and at the time I thought, I'd just find a 750 with a blown motor, and put the two together, and instant 1000$ nice car, right? I searched for over a year on CL and search tempest for a 750 with a bad motor, and I don't think I ever found one. I did find ONE with a bad transmission, but the car was too far away.

I think the m73 was a very well designed engine as durable as the I6 (whatever the number is) that it is actually two of.

But eventually it will find a home, but I think it is safe to say they aren't in much demand...
