when is it ok to rebuild an engine. i mean as far as Kilometers or miles? im curious because i may wanna rebuild my engine in the future instead of going to an M3 engine. now ive heard bad things about boring out the engine. can someone please explain why? i wanna know if it would be very bad for the engine block if i were to Force induce it (thinking Turbo) lots of random thoughts in this thread but i just wanna know what you guys think. also ive only got like 227,000 kilometers on the engine which is around 141,100 miles.
What about re-sleeving after boring? And aren't there kits to bolster the walls of the engine also?

I know with the M3 3.2L engine you can bore out to 3.6!!!
thats interesting i always thought that the 325 and 328 were the same engine , just one was bored bigger. any validity to that? [/b][/quote]
the 328 is a M52 and a 325 is a M50, but they are basically the same engine just alot of internal stuff was upgraded in the M52's, alot more than from the M52-M54 change.
if you cant bore out very much, maybe you can stroke it to 3.0L or more. i know thats a very popular thing to do on e30's.
