the earlir s52 engine used in the E36 form 1996-1999

S54 was used in the E46 M3. The S54, from what i gather was a completely new engine. same 3.2liter as the S52 though.

One thing that must be pointed out is that the engine used on the US-spec E36 M3 and M coupe was an S52US, which was more similar to the M52 on the 328 and 323 vehicles than it was to the engine used on the European M3, which produced 320 hp.

There you go: BMW M Coupe - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
