I know, I know. Why would i want to even want to waist money on such a challenge. Most say it isnt even worth the time but then i would be a starting enthusiast now would I? Ever since i child i have always wanted a bimmer and now i got one and well i am going to make it the best. Its starting out good so far gettin newer parts and has a beautiful paint job......so have any suggestion to make this car into a high performance machine? Thankyou

Not much performance wise you can do... it's not even a fuel injected engine. Best thing you can do is buy a later model (around 92-95) 2.5L engine and swap it in.

Swapping in a standard m20 wouldnt be a bad idea either...

If you want performance and you want to stick to the stock engine for now, get a chip made for the eta, it'll give one of the biggest boosts without spending SOOO much.

good luck

Well, that's just ignorant. OF COURSE it's fuel injected! Every 528e ever built was fuel injected.

i have found a couple of pics to suit E28 but i haven`t any ideas of installing one ..
I am thinking of custom twin stainless exhaust .. many of the M535 parts are interchangable ..

528e isn't that bad..

I have e34 525i m20b25 and I just bought eta crankshaft and high compression pistons (11:1). It's a bolt on job to the b25 block -> decent 2.7 liter engine IMO.

THe stock compression of 8,8 is not really good for performance, but the 11 is ok Have to change camshaft too, but I'm looking 240Nm of torq and 200hp...

For the e28 you could think of upgrading to normal (not eta) head, change camshaft and ECU. Should be an upgrade?
