from what i understand they didn't come with them till after 93, and you would use cams made for the e30 2.5?, but seriously don't quote me on this, anyone know for sure

You'd need cams made specifically for the non vanos M50.

No VANOS in your M50.

But you, like me, have a kick ass sounding exhaust that the VANOS equiped 325's just don't have!

There are some threads here with sound clips that show we already sound like we have an aftermarket exhaust; compared to newer Vanos engines. Search for them if you like...

this is how i learned it.

the E36 started in 92, the first production model engine was the M50 which had no vanos installed.

later with the 93's they changed it to the M50/T which was a single vanos engine.

im not sure of the months or anything that they changed production on the models, since they make the newer years a few months before and all of that, but as general knowledge, thats how it works.
