My Ride: 2003 330i Zhp
FS: M54B30 High Compression Engine build INCOMPLETE ENGINE

So where do I begin? I broke my car real good, I needed an engine rebuild….

Welp…Basically in a nutshell I’m an idiot. I wanted to build a high compression engine with lightweight errythang, and I went nuts. I was in cahoots with a mechanic, I got some parts and he was supposed to get some parts. He stopped making forward progress on the engine, got lazy and kept asking for money. I decided that I had given him enough time and money. I pulled the engine and the car. Put another engine in my car, and now I’ve got a half way completed performance engine build that needs another couple grand and it would be sweet. I DO NOT have a crank shaft. I do have however in my possession:

B30 Engine Block, shaved very low…going for the 12.5:1 ratio….basically making a race engine. The engine block is not COMPLETE IT NEEDS TO BE TIME SERTED FULLY. It is halfway complete....part of the reason I chose to pull the build. It took 9 months to get 5/14 correct holes bored and ready for head studs.

M54 Head, clean, stripped no springs or valves.
The OEM valves, springs, and retainers with 176xxx miles.
Titanium Valves, with retainers and seals, new from rallyroad.net. 600
ZHP Cams, this engine is from a ZHP. 400
M54B30 Intake manifold with none of the extras. maybe a gasket. 300
Lightweight Aluminum Piston heads with Crazy measurements. 900
Steal H-beam rods. 500
Nuke Fuel Rail. 200
Aaaand a Mishimoto Aluminum Radiator for the e46 M3….I was gonna make it fit. 200 And the silicone hoses to go along with it. 75

I’ve also got a bunch of miscellaneous engine parts that fit on the engine. I have all the timing chains, piston rings, break-in oil, m54b30 oil pan, engine plates. Yeah look at the picssss.

I would like to sell all of the engine parts either together in a bundle to someone who knows what the hell they’re getting themselves into, but I will sell separately.

All them engine parts minus the fuel rail and the radiator that only fits m3's for 3500.

If you're serious about buying I'll answer questions you have. I've got more pictures and specific measurements if needed.

Concerning the rods & pistons:

Rods
1) Are the Rods Completely stock measurements for crank & pin diameter ?
2) Are they stock length, or longer ?
3) What exact type/grade steel are they made from ?
4) What's the Exact weight of each rod ?
5) What manufacturer made the rods ?
6) What part number are they ?

Pistons
1) Are they stock bore size or .020 over ?
2) Are they Completely stock in ALL dimensions, or did you change things like A) Pin location B) Ring location C) Ring dimension ?
3) What type/grade aluminum are they made from ?
4) Are there any special coatings on them ?
5) What's the Exact weight of each piston ?
6) What manufacturer made them ?
7) Do you have all the rings for them ?
8) What part number are they ?

Rods:
1.) The crank pin diameter is the same as stock.
2.) the Rods are 135mm in length so yes stock length.
3.) They're Forged steel.
4.) 540 grams give or take a gram.
5.) Eagle H-beam.
6.) CRS5313B63D

Pistons:
I guess the measurements aren't as crazy as i thought. I was mainly talking about the valve pocket depth. These are the pistons for a b25 from wiseco.

1.) Stock bore. I was doing an N/A build on this possibly going to the Nitrous.
2.) Stock in all locations.
3.) Just forged aluminum.
4.) Coating just a little assembly lube on one.
5.) 330 grams give or take a gram.
6.) Wiseco
7.) I have rings. Hastings 2C 4573. for all 6.
8.) no idea.

I looked up these pistons and rods. i can buy the pistons from summit racing for $799 which includes shipping. i can buy the rods for $525 from amazon with shipping included. Why would i buy them from you for more money than brand new? my offer is $800 for both because you might have test fitted them which makes them used.

That is quite possibly the worst logic I've seen in a while.

That's fine, you buy them.

Those pistons already have nicks on them, just look closely at the pics. Once everything was removed from its original packaging who knows whats happened to them. If anything has accidentally been dropped, i personally would not install it because the tolerances need to be perfect.
