WTB: S50B30 US - long block only

Looking for one for a customer car. Don't need any of the accessories, aside from an e36 oil pan and valve cover for transport, as I have a complete motor to transfer parts off of.

I guess I should reiterate that I am looking for a good motor, nothing with issues, no projects or stories - something I can drop in the car and have it back on the road again.

An S52 long block would work just fine, too.

Close enough! You could always use a bicycle box for a valve cover and you will be set

Bumping this again. Still in need of the same thing.

Have a customer, who bought an S52, from someone on this board, and it's nothing more than a paperweight (engine is seized)...so, he is willing to pay up for a known good, documented, running engine.

I have a running s52 still in the car if interested. All cylinder compression between 150-155psi. 169,532 miles automatic. I’m currently bleeding the cooling system and will try to sell as a complete car, but I may be interested in parting out too. Let me know.

I'd buy the whole thing, for the right price. Text me - 503.967.3800

...or just slap an M52 with an S52 head in it, I think there is a guy selling one locally.


Also, check with Ryan - I though he mentioned we had a short block that came with that half built E36 hillclimb car he has.

Sold my M52 a month ago.

Need a long block at a minimum, a short block puts us basically in the same spot we're at. Will text him now.
