BMW Freakz,

Hey there all.

I am wondering about rebuild options for the 1.9 liter.

I have searched the forum and came up with nothing solid.

Is there a 1.9 "performance" crate motor? Or something similar?

Now before we go off on some "do an M3 swap man," I don't want to.

I like my little 1.9 and and I am not interested in doing low 10's in the 1/4. I just want in the area of 200 bullet proof, rev luvin, hp.

I have 105,000 miles on mine now and it is still perky as ever! However, I am going with a DASC and I want to put it on a solid motor. I know after I am thru I could have had a nice down payment on an M3 but no insurance co. will even come close to me with one of those.

Any one punched out a 1.9?

Any help will be much appreciated.

Suspension is coming tomorrow. Body kit next week. Motor is NEXT!

Just do an M3 swap man...


j/k

but 105,000 isn't that many miles. I bet you could supercharge that puppy and live happily ever after for a good while

Before you shell out 3400$ on DASC, please consider swap to a 2.8L aluminum block (comes on certain Z3s and something else I guess). It costs less than 2k with very decent miles, and is much lighter.

but swapping to a 6cly is a pain. You have to switch the rear subframe to a 6cly model, get a 6cly diff, and a 6ly driveshaft. While swapping rear subframes is not really that hard, it really is not something you can do yourself and requires a welder that knows what he/she is doing.

While you are doing the rebuild, you could do an OBDI swap which will give you some good hp and is not too bad. Just do a quick search and you'll find the info that you need for that.

If you've got crap loads of money like and additional 2k you could call uip BMP designs and get hooked up with some great cams and lifters and get some more hp that should work well with the DASC.

With the DASC it would not be a bad idea to go to a full exhaust with hi-flo cat to help breathing, as well as a CAI and upgraded throttle bodies and/or fuel injectors. All of these would be warrented to help get the most power out of the DASC.

I would do these before CAMS and lifters, however, you would have to tear the engine down later to install these two items though...

If I think of anything else I will let you know.

TheKid,

That's the info I was loooking for. I'l check more into BMP. I always forget about them.

I might just do the DASC on the engine now after I get a check on the compression. Then swap it over to the new one. If I can get the new motor to be a little more solid, and maybe get the head done with cams, then I can't see why we I couldn't up the boost a little???

It would be nice to see a SC ready crate motor.

Again I don't want to do a swap. Too much headache involved. With the SC I will be more than happy. I do more "turn diving" than I do straight out runs. So a little extra HP coming out of the turns would be nice.

I know exactly how you're feeling man, I myself have a 96 m44, which I actually destroyed...

I've been going through hell trying to rebuild this engine, if I would've just spent the cash up front, I could've purchased either a new crate motor, or down a 6cylinder swap for what I've already laid out. As it is, I need a new crank, rods, and pistons, the rest of the block seems to be in good shape (I bought this block to replace the one I threw a rod from)

anyway....

you can buy a remanufactured performance motor from Bavarian Engine Exchange www.bavengine.com for $4472, pricey, yes, but... it has a 5 year warranty, and it has 20% better performance than stock.

It used to be cheaper for this motor, but, hey, what can ya do?

Good luck... and let me know if you decide to actually replace that motor, I might be interested in the one you have for parts.

-Mike
