    Hey everyone I’ll first start off by saying I’ve been on this forum reading and getting much help from diagnostics to step by step diy’s for years now and I appreciate it all and hope one day I can help back the same way. I’ve got a 04 330 6 speed that I’m slowly turning into a drift track car...

    Hello, I am facing an issue and i am not sure what the solution is. I was having a long beep whenever i put the vehicle in reverse, after that i had no other sound, parking sensors wouldn't work. I scanned my e46 with a professional tablet and figured out that the issue was the rear left parking...

    Hello guys. I’ve got M54B30 in my ‘01 E46 and noticed that after I replaced the fuel pump, my LTFT on both banks are about -4 % to -7% which is almost rich condition. Now, i’ve already used the magic of reset adaptations, but after few kilometers, the LTFT readings are back to negative numbers...

    I am swapping am a production date 01/2002 engine to an 11/2002 engine (The first engine is dead). I know the valve cover is different and the A/C belt is as well. What else is different between the two? And is there a link to where BMW tells you exactly what is different? Thanks

    Hey guys, I bought a 3.30Ci 3 months ago. And it was converted from auto transmission. Now I have 3.38 final drive ratio and it makes my top speed about 230-240 km/h at 7000rpm. Besides, at my normal cruising speeds (90-100 km/h) my engine rev is so high (about 3000rpm @100km/h). Of course I can...

    Hello, my name is Appie and I am a bmw e46 owner. Excuse me for my English. Recently I money shifted my engine by accident and my car didnt have compression since, I've bought a new engine which has only done 70k miles. The engine is bald which means I have nothing on it except just the...

    So I purchased a Tuning service from RKTunes for my m54b30 and ended up not using it. I paid about $600 im willing to let it go for $500. Will arrange transfer of ownership/order to you. You send in your ECU File and they will tune it based on what mods you have etc.

    Here is a quick GoPro compilation of my B30 project so far. I've got the front end off and started to take the suspension apart. My exhaust flange to section 1 is completely rusted, so I'll need to figure that one out next. This is my first engine swap and can't thank the community enough for...

    I'm just finishing up my 04 coupe project and I'm having a transmission/TCM issue hopefully someone can help me out with. The car is an 04 sulev M56 car. I bought it with a bad engine (no compression on #5). It ran rough but was able to drive on the trailer and around the driveway. No...

    Hi guys, I need your input on whether to keep this rebuilt vanos that I just bought and put it onto my engine, or whether that looks weird and I should return it? The seller has good reviews on the rebuilt vanos and communication was good. Basically, when I received the vanos, I saw this...
  12. Engine Swaps
    Hi, I want to swap in a motor to my 2002 330CI. It overheated and the head bolts stripped when I replaced the head. I can buy a good M54B30 from a wrecked 2004 bmw 330CI but I don't know if it will transplant easily. Is this just a drop in replacement or are there significant differences between...

    So I will try and make this a short post as there is lots of small details. Recently swapped an M54B30 into my 325i. It was running well with the B25 injectors and MAF and ECU. Last weekend I swapped the B30 injectors and maf and had Balidawg Reprogram the ECU. The car idles well but under...

    I got my 325ci in exchange for my Volvo V70. After I tuned my friends Nissan 200 with M50 I decided that it would be a bit more power in my car. Bought a m54b30 engine along with a 5 speed zf box. A cast manifold with T3 flange, two gst 450 fuel pumps, forged rods, dp pistons, flywheels...

    Hi, Time to change my oil and need some advice. Last oil I have used was the Liqui Moly Molygen 5W40. Should I stick to that? Or should I go for Red Line 15w15? I currently have a couple of leaks: Main seal and valve cover (again for the third time 14 months).

    Fellas, I've been debating on the future of my 330i whether I should build the M54B30 ZHP engine or do a 2JZGTE swap. I'm looking to achieve 3-400 HP reliably. The car is more for daily commute but I want it to be able to go to the track here and there so my wife and I could have some fun. My...

    I bought a basket case 02 325ci where the original had a timing chain failure. I have a 96k miles M54B30 to go back in and have changed all the gaskets and clutch items that you'd normally do while engine was out. What I'm looking for is little things that need swapped now while the engine is...
