Join us for a dyno day in Sterling, Virginia.
The S52 is from my 98 E36 M3.
Reason it is removed from the car is because the car is being switched to a LSX and a 6 speed.
THE BUILD ... Built in 2005 time frame by engine builder and owner of CS Motor Motorsports Chuck Stickley. He has since retired. Google him. Previous owner of my car was good friends with Stickley's Protégé.
75k miles on build 10.8:1 compression. Shrick street cams. Exhaust cam retarded slightly for more torque per Stickley. Stock rotating assembly and cylinder head. ARP head studs. Stock head gasket. M50 intake. 24# Injectors. Dinan big bore throttle body. 3.5" MAF. Remus Header. Custom 3" mid pipe with high flow cat. Stewart water pump. JB lightweight flywheel. Oil pump nut pinned / welded in place. Set up for oil catch can. Epic Tuning. Will come with complete harness as well just as you see in pic and it's also set up with downstream O2 eliminators. Also has Eurosport aluminum pulleys.
Compression numbers are 190-195 across all cylinders.
Clutch is around 4 years old but only has around 10k miles on it. It's Kevlar 3 puck I believe
Dyno'd the car in Sept and made 250whp 240wtrq
Reach me at the cell below for more info. Engine has been run with Redline 10w40 regularly. Engine has zero leaks throughout and still runs strong. Drove the car almost daily.
Engine is located in Va Beach, Va
757-705-7050 Call or Text
$3500 for drop in and go set up with harness and the accessories
Can't get pics to link from my Shutterfly account. If someone can help me link pics, that would be great.
Click on the camera icon above the smileys, and then paste the picture link in there. Just paste in the direct link.
Where is the engine located?
In reply to Slippery:
Thanks. I've tried that and still won't link. Sorry. Edited my ad to include location. It's been a while since I've been active on forums so learning the ins and outs again.
Linked my pictures this way. It's working on my end. Sorry I couldn't get them to load directly to the post.
The ZF trans and ACS shifter that are in my album are already sold. S52 is still available and the AA exhaust is also.
Looks like an account might be needed to view the pics? It would not let me in unless I sign in or registered. That might be the reason it isnt working.
In reply to Slippery:
Figures. Well anyone interested feel free to contact me via cell and I can easily shoot them over via text.
There is also 2 video links in my ad above.
Since I can't get pics to load here is a link to my ad on CL
I may be interested after the holidays/come tax return time, but not much before unfortunately.
Stock redline? Was the valvetrain replaced while being rebuilt or is it original?
This is a VERY good deal.
Hope that helps

Thanks! Yes it is a very good deal.
Valve train was checked accordingly when it was built, yes.
I priced it to move. Engine will make upwards of 260-270 at the tire with proper exhaust.
Redline is 7200 .. Also Vanos has a Dr. Vanos kit in it. I also have an extra good Vanos too but the one that is on here is just fine. If it doesn't sell soon I'm going to offer it as basically a long block and pull the Remus header (which is no longer available) and the flywheel and clutch. May even pull the Dinan BB TB and sell those items separately.
Hate to separate it though. This combo is strong. Would love to see it in an E30
If you strip it, I'll absolutely take the longblock right now... just fyi.

My cell is in my ad. Feel free to reach out to me. I'd be asking $2500 for the long block with accessories, M50 and 24# injectors. I may also include the harness but I may decide to keep it. Everything else will come off
Fair enough. Today is a little crazy, but I'll reach out to you tomorrow sometime on your cell.
No problem. Yes, today is relax, be thankful, and get fat day. Reach out anytime.
Forgot to post this morning. I'm offering a Black Friday through Cyber Monday discount. Will knock off $250 on turn key combo picked up local to me.
Sale pending. Just took a deposit
Assuming this is sold long ago right??/
I assume so, but I had to ask.

Actually no it is not. I did take a deposit on it a week ago but the buyer just had to back out. He had some unexpected things arise. Back available now.
I refunded his deposit earlier today
I need to check this thread more often. I just dropped $1500 for another head yesterday.

:) Yeah I think this is a much better deal for you.
Will get it ready to go for you soon. Thanks bud!
