WTB: Built M10 engine


Recommended Posts

Hello gentlemen (and ladies),

I have been toying with the idea of building up an naturally aspirated m10 for street/dd duty. I have the 5-speed g240, the 3.91lsd, and a medly of other cool parts that compliment the freshly (stock) rebuilt, numbers matching engine in my car, but I can't help but want a bit more.

I have costed out the price for a built m10 with upgrades that I feel would be sufficient for daily drivability mixed with a bit of fun. Now I can go that route, or work with someone who is actively (or passively) looking to go a different route with their engine.

I have also toyed with other popular swaps including the s14 and a 2.9l m20. They aren't out of the picture, but if I can keep 4 cylinders, I much prefer this route over the 6 cylinder route.

Anyways, if you have something you think I may be interested in, shoot me a response via this thread or an email.

I am always looking.

Thank you,

Ryan

swap an m42 and turbo it, 4 cylinders, fuel injection, cheap replacement parts, great engine for DD and with boost it should be fun (btw that's what I'm doing with my 02 so I'm a bit biased)

Excellent suggestion!

I wanted a 2002 because it was a 2002 in its entirety. It's an old car. Old style, old feel, old everything. Why ruin a classic with an updated heart?

I thought about the m42 turbo, m10 turbo, s14, m20, and basically something EFI but in the end, I still like the idea of a NA carbureted, 120whp tin can on wheels that is surprisingly good in the corners.

I want a time machine... a car from the 70s.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
