My name is Nate. I'm a BMW tech in Tucson. I've only lived here for about 2.5 years or so. I lived in Phoenix area for a year and a half or so before that, and San Antonio before that. I grew up in Hawaii though so the lack of greenery is still weird to me. Currently in the middle of an M50 Vanos swap into my 318is. Daily my G35 but that will be sold when the 318 is moving under its own power again.

No one likes Tucson. UofA sucks.

Hey Nate, there are a few of us in Tucson - so welcome.

Nice to have a local tech! Do you work at an Indy or the dealer?

welcome, post all pics you have of swap, and answer all questions to the best of your ability.




Yes, this is a test.

I'm not super attached to Tucson, but I don't mind it for the most part. I moved here because my girlfriend went to the UofA. I work at the dealership. I only have a handful of pictures of the 318 as it has been sitting more than not since I've owned it.

(Fairly large pictures)

Here it is right after I bought it. The paint is not in as good of condition as it looks in the picture, especially now that it's spent so much time sitting outside. Somewhere in its lifetime it seems to have lost the IS spoiler and wheels (though it is in fact an IS) . I plan to get another spoiler/trunk eventually, and I would end up replacing the wheels anyway so no big deal. That euro plate was the first thing to come off.

Here's the engine as it sits now (though it's actually a bit cleaner since the picture was taken). I'm nearly completely resealing it aside from the head gasket, and am replacing whatever needs replacing. No real power upgrades planned as I'm not sure the G240 will take much more than the stock M50 will put out. I originally intended to drop an S50 into the car but this engine fell into my lap so I figured why not. It will probably be in the car by the end of this month or sometime next month. I'm not in a huge hurry considering I have another car to drive.

New picture of the engine nearing completion. I put the manifold on to see how it looks and now I think I may have to paint it a darker black to match.

It's been running for awhile now. I just need to get an exhaust made.
