M20B20 ECE was a variant of M20B20 with higher compression compared to the standard M20B20. It was relatively more powerful, but would have had fuel issues in India in those days.

I wish I had a e34 shell, I would have bought your M20B20. Alas! that is not the case.

Jitu, the only one I can think of is the B16, doubt if any of the SOHC's can be bored out to 1.8

i was thinking of boring the b16b to 1.8 or getting a b18c, also how is this off topic, AM is depressed and isnt installing his engine as it has been bored, i was just pointing out that it isnt such a bad thing that it has been bored, atleast he can put the engine and get the car in running condition.

@accord master - contact viper performance, aka jignesh goradia for advice, mail him, he has quite alot of knowledge, maybe he can help you with you beamer.

We are talking about Honda engines in a BMW thread & like amit (iceman91) mentioned all engines are not the same. You sound as if building engines are like making cake.

Not trying to discourage you but i think you need to do a lot more research & learn basics of engine, this is something which you cannot learn in a months time. You have sufficient time & narrowed down on the car too, an "RS" i believe, so study that car, that engine, join some VW forums & you will get some real life experience from the people who have already modded their ride.
There is always difference between perception & reality, and the sooner you can make out the difference it will be better for you.

Yes seriously! The car can put out a lot more than that I can guarantee you, but it won't be reliable, especially not in India. But it's been done many times over, and this magical figure has been surpassed many times over! You're from NJ dude don't tell me you've never seen an E30 with an M20 rocketing off at a track?!? Oh and I think you need to get your facts straight, the M50 and 62 are DOHC engines, M20s are SOHC! so yeah the 24v engines are more efficient and hence were brought in. Sure you'd like to argue against double vanos (Vtec) too! Or why not argue against OBD2 while you're at it!

He wants only 300, it's nothing. Have seen M20s push 2 bar boost as daily drivers on stock internals. It ran almost 2 years that's how tough they are!

About putting the m20b20 engine back in remember it has already been bored to a 2.5 ltr now...
so instead of pressing charges against me under the cruelty to cars act , give me time and see the first properly tuned well maintained e34 and guys do you think that i should put in the 2.0 ltr engine back in wont that be just giving up on the car itself and quitting ??
cheers

Dude AM why do you wanna put the M20b20 back in? I thought the B25 had new internals et al...well if that's the case it's best to get the B25 in there for now, fully built, and run it in for like 3-5K. Then go FI. And don't worry, that figure is easy...you'll have a lot of fun, but the E34 is a pretty big car to drift with so make sure she handles the power!

i was just saying, that atleast use the engine till you find a new one, also im not going to mod the vRS, just a few basic ones, like FFE, CAI, struts, etc. No big mod.stock.

Sir,

The gentleman Accordmasters is already sitting with two engines, both with a 2500 displacement. I think he is competent to take a call. He's had enough of "it" so let him decide !!!!!

Default Megasquirt Link

Since you are planning to use Megasquirt, you might want to take a look at this. I found this when looking for performance mods to my 535i. Megasquirt should be quite easy to set up for a FI mod as long as you buy the suitable version.


Plug n Play Megasquirt for the 535i, 525i, and U.S. M5 - Bimmerforums - The Ultimate BMW Forum

well for now i dont know if i would be using megasquirt or not because im just waiting for my 2.5 ltr engines stock ecu which according to autopsyche will take 2 weeks to come ( again 2 weeks) as it is still in the states from i dont know when .
Thanks for the info tho shivam , appreciate it .
Have been busy for a few days now and couldnt go and check out the parts that i have with me so would be going in tomorrow to see what i have to work with and decide where to start from and which way to go
1.keep it stock (2.5ltr engine) run it for an year or two
2. Go FI ( First rebuild and do a run in tho)
All these suggestions and comments from everyone just got me thinking that why are people a bit hesitant to go the turbo way in India , i know im going to face problems because it is the first bmw in india that anyone has dared to go FI with .
Cheers
AM
