Like the topic says... I am looking into buying an older 3 series 4 door http://m3forum.com/ubb/biggrin.gif and throw in this motor. Any thing I should be aware of?

I know it's not a BMW but it will be soon.

You should not attempt this under any circumstances.

S14 2.3ltr are great to run on the track, ***** to maintain and rebuild.
Look for Rod bearing failures .. Oil leaks from upper lower pan. many more.

Recommend going with a s52 s54 this would be a great option for your 4 door.
Seen these S50 series ran half the price of s14. If your goal is to look for bargains?

Check out s14.net. The guys will give good sound advice. GL
