Hi i need to know if the s50/s52 timing chain tensioner fits the M50 engine.,

The S50 was the first M3 engine, from 94 to 95 i think, the one that has only 250 hp.

then the s52 came later it has 320hp..
both m3 engines share the same tensioner. After looking on the web many people retrofit the s50/s52 tensioner on other older bmw engines to prevent cold startup problems, since this tensioner has a stiffer spring inside, it maintain the tension on the chain better for startups.

Please, i already got the part and i just want to know if this is ok.

On the websites on the net, they use this s50 tentioner on s14 engines and other engines, im not sure if they also say it fits an m50.

when looking on the Bmw etk, both tensioners look alike and when compared to the M50 tensioner it has same appereance, just stronger srping and all...

Please let me know as i already have the tensioner and i want to know if its ok to put it in...
Thnak you.
