    Thats because it's the M50 2.5

    What happened with the other drifter Tim ? This one will be sold in 2weeks, and 2 days (Thats my bet ).

    It's an M50 engine. If it is built by Chris at crm-tech then it's going to be very well done. He specialises in breaking M3's so that car will have top quality parts on it. Wondering why he didn't put in an M3 engine though? He must have had a reason

    is this an older 325 lump then?

    ive stuck the other one on ebay it would be great as a drifter but i need something like this,a lot more solid for a 2jz single turbo engine swap.

    Yes it is but it is more reliable than the 328 with HG issues. That's not to say it doesn't suffer HG failure but it takes a hell of a lot and it is a lot easier to be rebuilt if the HG does go Bullet proof engine

    As Stk said, it's said to be more reliable than the M52. Blocks made of iron too, rather than aluminum

    I'm gonna have to create a whole forum dedicated to just your cars
