I have been trying to do my resurch on to finding out the difference between the e36 s52 US vs the e36 s52 euro engines. So far all I can find is that the euro version jsut has a multi throttle, headers, and air/fuel ratio upgrades. Am I correct in this? or is there more or less?

I'm jsut looking to upgrade my us s52 to euro standards before dinan releases there intercooler charger for the e36. figure I can pump up around 450+ hp with jsut thous.

and yes I know it wont be us smog legal. thou I am curiouse to see how dinan does on makeing a intercooled charger smog legal. I'm sure they can and cant wait to see the specs!

Also would anyone know if a 2002 m5 6 speed tranny will fit a e36 ?

their two totally different motors...you cant convert your motor...bavauto has a multi throttle body system that you can put on your s50/s52 but still wont be like the euro motor.
