Hello. I am new to the forum but not to cars. I just have a question. My mother had a '92 325i. I had the head rebuilt but we ended up selling the car without putting the engine back together. What applications will this head fit b/c now I am stuck with a redone head with all new valves and a HG set? I thought someone said it will only fit the 92-94 325i but I thought that it should fit all the 2.5L from 92-98; will it also fit the 525i? Thanks in advance.

this is a non vanos engine so it should fit 92-95 with ease. It SHOULD fit 95-98 obd2 cars as well but you might need an ecu and wiring harness from an obd1 car. I have no idea if it'll fit a 5 series

you should be able to find people who want it fairly easily. the 92 non vanos motor had the hottest cam profile available for a 325 from the factory, as a result it made a bit more power. The only hotter 325 compatible cams come from the S50 motor, which is VANOS so it will not fit your head.

Read about my Frankenmotor Project and see how an M50 becomes an S50!!!

No, don't worry. It's cool. I'm taking it back for us.

Well I paid $900 to have everything done. It includes the new valves, new headgasket set. If you want pics you can email me at Excelerate@sbcglobal.net. You can IM me at Excelerate04 with an offer. Thanks.

Thanks, but I'll have to pass on that. I'm actually trying to find a bad 92 head.

Well I am not asking $900, I was thinking more like $750 shipped.

Ahhh, stop tempting me!

Perhaps after the new year I'll have some money to throw that way. Don't hold on to it for me though.
