Well I should have know better than to trust the internet. I needed the firing order for this car as there were no spark wires on the engine when I got it . My search came up with a diagram that had the wrong rotation

Oh god.  Cambered rear on a bmw.  That is painful to look at for my eyes.  Front looks fine.  I think it would look better if the rim wasn't actually in the well.  Maybe half as lowered.  But the back is hideous.  Clean BMW though.  Can't say I wouldn't drive it.

BMW's run about 2 degrees of camber in the rear factory......

 

obviously this one is more than that, but still.....

Before you flame the Fram filter the PO had installed as I did at first,  this happen twice and if you look close the filter is ballooned

 

IMAG0747_zpse12209f2.jpg

 

and after some searching I found out that it's not uncommon for these engines to have the oil pump pressure relief valve get stuck and the filter seal is the first thing to blow

Got to evaluate this engine first as I don't really know the condition of it.

I read that the problem is the pressure relief valve bore is aluminum and wears. If I don't find anything scary when I pull the pan I'd like fix it, get it running and do a compression test to know what I have even if I don't use it.

 

There are so many other great motors I could put in there and it would be nice not being tied to BMW for power

Fixed the pressure relief valve, reinstalled the engine and fired it, makes lots of ugly noises so I'm calling this a core.

Time to look other directions as I don't really see a sick BMW M10 a good fun for the money option

With "Teutonic gall" BMW obviously intends that their engines will last forever or until the first front end crash!  I had a 2002 Coupe and did not suffer a front end crash, so it lasted long enough to need a new water pump.  Guess what!  The factory installs the water pump and hose to the engine block before installing the engine accessories and installing it in the chassis.  A 4 inch hose with about 1 and a half inch clearance to the block.  Just try to chance that pump without pulling the whole engine and transmission assembly.  I did it!  I think I still have the scars on my knuckles!  That being said, That 2002 was one hell of a car!  By the way, it had an automatic transmission [ZF] without an external fluid cooler!

I know the M10 engine has a good pedigree but I think I'd be happier with something else. This is my seventh BMW, they're not bad when running good but the cost of rebuilt long blocks and transmissions can take some of the fun out of it.

Most of the ones I see don't get lowered that much but this red one looks about right

Front of this blue one looks good but I don't like the back being lower or at least looking lower in this pic

I know a guy in King, NC who has the SR20DET in his 2002. Says it was pretty easy once you took care of the interfearing items. Rebuilding the Beemer motor surely will cost you and it won't even be fast, but could but that too will cost you.

Before I get flamed for sharing this l'll state the goal for the car:

 

TORQUE, Not a track car, a road trip car

 

Not interested in an engine designed to spin high RPMs. I want an engine that's happy pulling in 5th gear.

A heavy long stroke truck 4 cylinder would be perfect.

 

 The 2.7 3RZ has got my attention. I already have a 5spd with the right bellhousing and passenger car gear ratios.
