I'm considering engine replacement due to a broken timing belt which caused valve damage @ ~400k miles on a Super eta (confirmed).
Not wanting to give up any of the performance advantages of the original engine, I'm seeking wise counsel on this forum. (BTW, what are the advantages of this Super eta engine?)
Can anyone tell me if a block and head from an '86 528e is a suitable replacement for the original motor and are the intake manifolds the same?
The plan is to use two engines to make one good one.
Thanks for reading.
