    And for the record, my '91 318is had a '93 engine in it, and all that was required to fit it was the intake manifold swap.

    Back to how awesome this incredibly common swap is.

    The M44 has the newer control with the knockedy sensors too.... Say hello to DASC, although its still not as fast an as S50.
    the 93-95 M42's have the knock sensors as well.

    I still think it would be a fun little project to swap one of those into an e30 with the DASC. That could make for a tossable little car.

    ah the old "I responded to a M42 FS and said I'd pick up and then wanted the seller to ship" routine...

    I'd wager that one.

    On another note... haha imagine having that engine in an e34 or e39! haha I bet I could push the car faster than the engine could move it.
    US spec e36's up until 96 had an M42. It's got a different intake manifold than the e30 M42, but it is still an m42. In 96 they got the 1.9 litre m44.

    Good luck with the swap - keep us posted. Love the cig pic.
    What do you need an M42 for?
    I'm swapping an M42 into my Eta. :)

    I have a 93 318i that I'm finishing - timing chain slipped, just replacing the motor.
    You know M42 & M44 arent the same correct?
    Well gee whiz Chris, I thought they were the same. ;)

    What the FUCK engine does this car have? Some people say it's an M42. Some say it's an M43 or 44. I don't get it.

    M44 was post 96/OBD-II. So I really don't think I have that.

    I need an engine for this car. Pleeeese help :)
