  2. Performance
    Hey guys, I have two unused clutches for an E30. They're both stage 3 and good to about 500 ft lbs of torque. They were mounted and removed but never used. Asking $200 + shipping for each clutch.

    Hey guys I have a quick question. I have a 1987 325is that I bought for a steal. The only problem is that it has a cracked head, rat poop, and just over 200k on it. I am finally getting the chance to pull the old motor/trans this afternoon and I am looking for a new M20 for it. Junkyard...
  8. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I've been having a seriously annoying problem with my car the past 8 months. It's been having some trouble idling. It idles very roughly and then stalls. I've had two instances where it seems to be misfiring as a result of this, and I can smell fuel in the exhaust, so I assume it's running rich...
  9. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Quick stupid thread... Still more dreaming and planning.. :rolleyes: So, I want to run an oil cooler, which with the turbo, would make things all messy with oil hoses everywhere. I could do things traditionally and run the turbo out of the oil pressure sensor (t fitting) ending up in the oil pan...
  10. E34 (1989 - 1995)
    Hey, I'm wondering if you guys know if I actually have different drive-train parts other than diff and tranny? Like if I will need 540i axles for a large power increase, etc? Also, I did an M20 turbo build parts list on FI forum. If I wanted to make a molehill a mountain, I could call it my...
  11. Forced Induction
    Hey guys, the FI forums are always quiet, so I figured I'd post the parts needed to build a 330ish WHP M20B25. This is less of a build thread and more of a BMW cooking show. Anyway, the total should range from about $3300 to $5000 with optional parts listed. I've done every calculation in the...
  12. E28 (1982 - 1988)
    Hello, After recently servicing my 1986 BMW E28 520i Lux I now have low compression on all cylinders. All around 4.5bar/65psi :cry: This was tested hot and only a minor increase when doing a wet test (small amount of oil on the top of each piston) During the service I have done the...

    I attached a vacuum gauge to my m20 with 133,000 miles and it has a steady vacuum at about 15inHg when it should be at 20inHg . The engine idles rough, but runs perfect when not idling, and gets about 17mpg which I believe is low. I have checked the valve clearances and some vacuum lines but...
  14. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    I have 213k miles on my 90' 325I and my compression is very low in cylinders 6 and 5 it's 120psi. And it increases as I go to the front of the engine. What is the reasoning to this? About 140 or more psi in cylinders 3 2 and 1. I also have a lot of carbon build up on the spark plugs in cylinder...
  15. E30 (1982 - 1993)
    New to the site and group - but have had a half dozen Bimmers - so I know what I don't know is what you folks have off the top of your head - pardon the pun. My son's E30 has 150k on it, just broke its second rocker arm; first one was cyl 5 so we slid the cam forward and replaced only the...

  17. Classifieds
    Hey guys, I'm currently parting my 525i from '89 and I was wondering if anyone needs a clean M20 engine with 85k on it. Engine is still running with no issues cause I didn't take it out yet but I probably will somewhere around this weekend. It comes with the Getrag 260 tranny and fair clutch...
