1997 4.4L DOHC BMW V8 with 6 spd, 30K miles. I wanted a non-vanos motor because it can be managed by aftermarket engine management systems like Electomotive and SDS.

My rule: If I am going to build a BMW hot rod, it must use all BMW parts.

Pretty sure I will not use the factory management system, too hard to integrate OBD2 into e30 chassis. I have all of the factory management system, but will probably sell it.

Not sure of the mileage on the M3 motor, but I pulled the valve cover and plugs, engine is pretty clean on the inside and the plugs look great. I believe it has been rebuilt at least once. Hence the agressive price, I can verify it runs well and can have a leak down test done.
