    Its not... It just costs more for an S50.. Which is silly but its OBD1 and a cake swap but cost more.. This is purely a guesstimation of cost 2 swap vs HP

        So my Wagon that I bought has electrical gremlins up the wazu. I don't have windows, locks, or cluster lights. Anyone savvy with diagnosing electrical problems? 94 E34 525iT.

            A 1975 Fiat X/19 came up for sale from a friend of a friend.
            It's a brown color. Hasn't run in YEARS! Not sure what it's gonna need, seller wants 400.00 for it. Everything within me is saying AVOID AVOID AVOID. I find myself searching google and looking at pics.

            and your "Everything within" would be correct , stay away if you want any hair left or any kind of life/money left . worst car in the world to try note i say "try " to keep running ,never mind drive the POS..... best this about them is they look good sitting there rusting away!

                  I wish it was that simple. I've gone through 3 GM's and replaced the fuseable link.

                    Just not my cup of tea.

                    If I ever got back in a little mid engine car it's be an AW11 Chassis MR2.

                    Had a blue one in HS and loved it. Would've kept it but a clutch job was way out of my budget at the time, sold it for 450.00!

                      thanks for the input guys, I have never really considered the M54 as a viable option because of how difficult it appears to be, I'm not good with electrical. That is one of the reasons the M30B3.5 looks so appealing to me, it seems like it uses a very similar electrical system.

                      Also, just another thought, could a B3.5 block be stroked and punched out to 4.0?

                        I have always loved the idea of an M30. Built and NA would be even cooler! Unique build!

                          Ah, you're saying it's the same cost as s52, but the gains are less than an s52. So like ∆HP/$? Getting a whole donor car is the way to do it. And power increase depends on what motor you started with, obviously.

                            Yea all the S50B30's I see are 2.5k+, yet you can find S52's for 1000-2500. S50B30 wasnt available very long. They made about 2x as many S52US
