    GENERAL INFO
    M50 and M52 engines have been made having as a reference a stock 325i E36.

    Here are the real life combinations for those who don't know

    • All M50 engines use the Getrag 250G gearbox with a 3.15 final drive as stock.
    • All M52 and the S52B32US engines use the ZF gearbox with a 2.93 final drive as stock.
    • Both S50 engines use the Getrag 420G with a 3.15 final drive as stock.

    TUNING
    M52 and S52B32US engines can be modified with the M50 Intake Manifold, which reduces low end torque but increases horsepower at the high RPM range.


    M50 and M52 engines have an additional ECU that raises the revlimiter up to 7000RPM and enables launch control.

    M50 and M52 engines can be tuned with a stroker kit.

    M50B25 engines can also be upgraded with some camshafts (naturally aspirated only), or a turbocharger.

    S52B32 can also be modified with a centrifugal supercharger instalation, at 6PSI (0.4bar) makes 345hp and 400Nm.

    You can also reduce the engine inertia a bit for faster revving up with the 6-pad racing clutch.

    Exhaust sound can be modified changing the exhaust to the custom one, has catalyc converters and resonators deleted combined with a sport muffler with bigger exhaust tips.

    There is also a 6-speed gearbox from a diesel that has shorter 1-2-3-4-5 gears but a longer 6th gear, and combined with a shorter final drive could be a good combo for drifting B20 engines

    its a really good mod I love it but can you make more tuning options for all of the engines like turbos, cams, more exhaust stuff like that to make the mod a bit more fun and crazier

    Awesome mod. Would it be possible to add AWD drivetrains to the gearboxes?

      Probably next update should bring it, I'll need to add front gear ratios tho.
      Thanks for the review!

    Really great mod, but for me the engines rev way too slowly like there would be a heavy flywheel, maybe add different mass flywheels?

      In this update (3.0) the engines have been highly modified and now they rev as fast as a stock 325i E36. ;D

    2/5,
    Version: 1.5
    I can't find these in-game, i cannot for the life of me figure out why they refuse to show up, if they're named anything other than M50 or M52 then I won't be able to pick them out from the other handful of engine mods but the custom configs dont even appear so that means the mod is essentially disabled. It could be a bug related to another mod but there's no way to tell which one

      Author's Response
      In the new update the engines are no longer in a separated body slot, this way there are 0 possibilities of having compatibility issues. If configs still don't appear, you have an issue with your game or you have a pirate copy. Would be great if you consider changing the review after testing ;D

    the Chip tuned M52 is not able to rev over 6500rpm, the powercurve just stops dead at 6500, otherwise great mod

    Really nice mod, but if you could have pictures of the engines in the repo, it'd be cool too.

      Engines use the same model, the ETKi 3000cc I6, so IDK what you refer to haha. Thanks for the review tho
