Default M44 for sale

Marv-

I did an engine swap about 4 months ago and have a M44 out 1996 Z3. I bought the car with the engine in running condition but the engine would over heat after a few minutes since the water pump was dead. I tried to get the water pump out but managed to break the flange in the process on the pump. Knowing I would need to rebuild the engine since it had been overheated and the compression was down 40lbs on one of the cylinders, I took it out.

I replaced the M44 engine with one from a later year 318ti that a kid sold me since he was a putting an M3 motor in the car. I also had to swap out a few parts since the later model engine did not fit my car exactly. So I have and 1996 engine with wiring harness, exhaust header and emission equipment and computer from a 1998 318ti.

Let me know what parts you would like and make me an offer.

Take care,
Michael

PS: I live in Northern Ca in Petaluma. The best way to cotact me is: Michael.Carver@noaa.gov

I've got an M44 engine I just pulled out of my '97 ti. It ran great, smooth and strong. I pulled it because I'm converting to electric, not because of any issues with the engine or other ICE related stuff.

Let me know if you're still looking.

Thanks,
ARti

that's out of an E46 318ti, it might work but it would be way to much work, but he's already gotten an S52 anyways
