M52 drop in swap-3500 obo.
The engine was a spare motor out of an auto 328i of unknown mileage. The engine was inspected prior to install and no abnormalities seen. The engine was resealed after inspection and ran for roughly 3000 miles. I have plenty of parts receipts. Many of the replacement parts are oem/oe. The car dynoed at 186hp and 176tq. Dyno sheet provided. I kept the motor obd 2 for easier diagnosing purposes. My build thread for this motor starts at the end of page 7- Video of dyno pulls- Outline of what’s included below.
