    I'm looking to find a catless down and mid pipe for the 2.5i N52 engine on the 2004 BMW X3, are there any other BMW models that use the same engine, style of exhaust piping, and set up that I would be able to use the catless aftermarket part for?

    Hey everyone. Still kinda new gear. So the engine in my 2009 328i blew and I wanted to know if I could have my local shop put a N52 in to replace it, given how they are cheaper and easier to find than a N51. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    As a handful of members may have read, my '06 2.5 N52 325i was involved in a crash at the end of last week.

    Recently I replaced my valve cover gaskets on my n52. All went well no pinched gaskets etc. I start the engine after calibrating the valve tronic motor and experienced some crazy idling issues. There was only one time I had an idle issue and it was with a rotted coupler. Any help is appreciated

  17. X3 E83 (2004 - 2010)
    Hi, I have a 2008 E83 with the N52 motor in it. I recently replaced the valve cover gasket, which required the removal and re-installation of the Valvetronic motor. The process went off without a hitch; however, the throttle now surges when accelerating, as if the Valvetronic isn't working...

    So I swapped a engine in my bmw 325i e90 N52 to a engine from a 328i e90 (magnesium Valve cover to plastic) so I got the engine in realizing that the wiring harness didn't fit with the connectors on the car and so I took the engine out, swapped over the harness and put everything back together...
