will an S50 head fit onto an M50 block? If so, is it an easy swap? I know I owuld need upgraded software, but im concerned whether this is doable. Thanks

fitment is a direcy swap, in fact all e36 cylinder heads are the same (obviously not the 1.8). ONly differences are the cam sizes.. this should bolt right on and you MIGHT need a chip upgrade to work with the new cams

alrighty then. I can get a head from a 95 LTW for $950. Is this worth it? oh and what about the timing? The chain from m50 will work? Will it be hard to time with this head?

would you get around 30hp from the new head like you would from m3 cams and chip in the 325 head since they are the same?
