I've got my current engine pulled out and I looked on the new //m engine and say m52. Now I need some serious info quickly about the model numbers. I've seen people saying a m3 engine will say m52 or it will say s52. Which is it? This is supposively from a 97 m3. Can someone please call me with a resulte at 509-220-5232 as I have very limited access to a pc.

I got fucked... it's all good though. still putting in a 2.8l with an obd1 conversion so it'll still be pretty good... I'm contacted my CC company to dispute the charge so it's cool

Oh I will... my CC company is going to dispute the charges based on fradulant misrepresenting or whatever the fuck that means! :P here is the link to the original listing from ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAP...item=7923634448

and here is his mass e-mail to people who had bid on it:

I CLOSED THIS AUCTION BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE REQUESTED IT AND SO FAR I HAVE OFFERED IT TO THE FIRST TWO PEOPLE THAT ASKED FOR A BUY IT NOW PRICE BUT NO ONE HAS PAID ALTHOUGH THEY BOTH AGREED WITH THE SALE PRICE. THIS IS THE SECOND LISTING BECAUSE THE FIRST ONE WAS WON BY A DEAD BEAT BIDDER THAT BID A LITTLE CRAZY AND THEN CHANGED HIS MIND AT THE LAST MINUTE. I'M NOT GOING TO LIST IT AGAIN! THIS IS THE DEAL : I'M GOING TO SEND EVERYONE INTERESTED A COPY OF THIS EMAIL SO YOU ALL HAVE THE SAME OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE THE ENGINE. THE PRICE IS $2200 FLAT FEE. YOU ARRANGE YOUR OWN SHIPPING. I WILL MOUNT IT TO A PALLET BUT YOUR SHIPPER MUST BE PICK IT UP AT MY RESIDENCE IN KALAMA WA., 98625 YOU MAY PAY FOR IT ANYWAY YOU LIKE (PAYPAL IS FINE) BUT WHOEVER PAYS FIRST IS THE ONE THATS GOING TO GET THE ENGINE. I'M SORRY TO HAVE TO DO IT THIS WAY BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ANY THING ELSE TO DO. THE ENGINE DOES RUN FINE AND HAS BEEN WELL TAKEN CARE OF. THE ONLY COMPONENTS I HAVE IS WHAT IS LISTED IN MY AUCTION. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU CAN GET AN APROX. TIME AND DAY THAT YOUR SHIPPER WILL SHOW UP (AM OR PM IS FINE) SO I'LL BE SURE TO BE AVAILABLE. MY PAYPAL ID IS <censored> AND MY PHONE NUMBER FOR SHIPPING ARRANGEMENTS IS <censored>. THANK YOU - JIM

Lying pos. I contacted him and the police department in his city but he hasn't responded yet. the PD told me to give him 48 hours to respond with my proposition of he sends me back 1000 and we'll call it even. otherwise, I'll file a report and my CC company will go ahead with the claim. until then I have everything on hold giving this guy the benefit of the doubt. Another thing I noticed that I couldn't see before is the VIN number sticker was taken off. this engine might be hot. I'll use that against him if possible.

yeah thanks a lot Sean and thanks for calling me. It'll work fine. Problem I'm worried about though in the new chip I had specially made by autowerks. It was designed for a 95 m3 motor not 2.8l. I'm thinking my current chip will work with the motor but not the new one so that sucks... but it'll be an odb1 2.8l motor which is tight.

on the lower half block there is actually a 1inch block that says the engine size like this one says 28. That piece was covered in some werid goo. After I cleaned it off I could see what it was. The VIN number paper had been removed. it didn't look like any grease removed it. And then paper on the engine that says the model number was also covered in something weird.

The first picture is a totally different engine. Look at the oil filter housing.
