S52 out of a 1996-1998 if I'm not mistaken.
As long as you maintain it it'll last you forever!

Do the 323s and 328s get similar highway mileage? Or is the 323 significantly better at sipping fuel miserly?The engine was in great shape, only a small problem occured in one of the cylinders which was burning oil after starting.

What?

Track car: S50B30US; plentiful, affordable, robust, sufficient power; easy to get more power.
Weekend car: S50B32; uncommon, powerful, elaborate throttle bodies and pretty aluminum engine covers.
Daily Driver: M52B28; torquey and cheap.

I'll agree with the first two, but there is something fun about daily driving an S50 car, even if it's a b30us motor.
