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.

i looked at a super charger conversion for my 328 and was told that if my engine had done too many miles it wouldnt cope.....

.depending on how much of a rebuild/tune up your going to do will depend how well your engine will cope/last....... best thing to do is ask the people who are going to do it...

What about re-sleeving after boring? And aren't there kits to bolster the walls of the engine also?

I thought the 328 was a bored out version of the 325 engine?



I know with the M3 3.2L engine you can bore out to 3.6!!!

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.
