Engine Identification.

I have found an engine out of a BMW. It looks alot like the engine in my '90 325i but i'm not sure if its exactly the same. I'm wanting to pick it up but don't know how to identify it. Can anyone shed some light on this?

On the exhaust side of the head, look for a displacement casting it will either say "2.7" or "2.5/2.7" or "2.5". Then on the drivers side just above the #1 and #2 intake ports you'll find a round casting that'll have the year (88).

Much appreciated.

This is what I like. The other BMW sites i was on would have jumped all over me and asked me if I was an idiot. Thank you.
