I have been looking into doing some cam work on my 1992 325i M50 engine. I was asking about buying a set of used M3 cams, but was told that they would not work in my engine. I have a set of tuned headers , a SS exhaust system, performance coils and a racing Chip install already. I was also told
"Ok, you have a 92' non Vanos M50. Only vanos 93-95 can accept M3 S50 cams and need a new chip, something I'm actually doing soon, I already have the cams and chip. (((For a 92', You move your intake cam to the exhaust side and buy a shrick intake cam, also I've heard a S50 intake cam will work. What I'm not sure of is that the ends of the cams, where the timing chains and sprockets run, the intake cam has four holes for bolts, and the exhaust has three. If your intake only has three, then I guess you wouldn't be able to use the S50 intake cam, but I'm not sure.)))"
Could anyone back up this info or suggest something else. I am also looking for a used Garrett turbo system if you know of one let me know OK.
You folks that know BMWs please tell me something about the cams.
Thank you for your time
