    Engine Replacement

    I'm BACK!

    I have been working so much and getting ready to get married that I haven't had the time to get on here. My 325i has been sitting since my last post a couple of months ago. I finally have the money I need to get a replacement engine. Now I just have to find one. I was thinking of upgrading to the 3.0L engine. I can't find any DIY's on this subject, just lot's of posts of people on other forums arguing about it.

    If I get a 3.0L engine to drop in, what other parts would I need to make it work in my 2001 325i Sport 5sp manual?

    I've seen a couple decently priced s54 motors on M3Forum and E46F.........unless you've already got the 3.0L motor.

    I want to say theres a guy on here thats switching his auto ZHP to a manual, can't remember where i read that at. If you can dig that up, that may help with the drivetrain end of things.


    G/L with the project, sounds like it could be fun/leave room for some modding prior to motor install.

    Not totally sure on the entire parts list, but wiring loom should be compatible. If going to a 3.0L, remember you will need a complete motor with intake manifold including MAF, and I also believe headers, since they are different from the 2.5L. Also probably need computer for a 3.0L or yours burned.

    What's a decent price for an S54? I'm looking to stay around 100K miles or less on the engine.

    It's killing me seeing my car just sit there

    Found this in Illinois on Car-Part.com. It's 172 miles away so I could drive to pick it up instead of having it shipped. Anyone know anything about this site?

    Car-Part is legit. It's a nationwide scrapyard inventory. The yard itself is what you need to look into.
