3-Series (E21, E30)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1975-1983 and 1984-1991 line. Specific models: BMW 315, BMW 316, BMW 318, BMW 318i, BMW 320/4, BMW 320i, BMW 320/6, BMW 323i, BMW 320i. E30 Family models include: BMW 325e, BMW 325i, BMW 325is, BMW 325ix.
A guy on ebay is selling a 2.5 e30 engine and is claiming there is a difference in the engines because its an mtec car, this is what he said...
"You should do your investigations around the 25 i sport gold seal engine, which if you look at has a gold wax over it and was upgraded from the original 25 lump, thus the reason that a 325 i sport (M Tech) is much faster then the normal 25 i."
i thought that the MTEC cars just had the upgraded suspension and exterior/interior bits?
To be honest... This is the biggest SHITHEAD MOVE OF THE YEAR! I have an 86 ETA. The Stroked but otherwise DETUNED m20 engined e30... And you know what??? I have a gold valve cover! Does that mean I have an MTEC Engine???? Oh DEAR GOD I WISH!
I hit my "GOLD" valve cover with some acetone.... You know what... I dont' have "Gold Seal" engine anymore! SHIT! I thought I had a mutant! On a serious note... this deal smells like my underwear after a night of JEGERMEISTER shots...
Did I just say too much?
Hope this lets you make a decision!
