$150 for a ran-when-pulled m54b25. Worked fine, I swapped this for a zhp motor. Had about 100k. North Suburban Chicago

This would bold right into a 2001 X5 correct?  With an oil pan swap of course.

Maybe swapping this for the broken M54B30 would be easier and cost less that repairing the head on mine.

Potentially interested.

B30 = 3.0
B25 = 2.5

I am not sure how it will run with your DME.

It's from an ix and still wears that oil pan. There's a auto and six speed transmission behind... both of which need to find a new home as well. Nib lightweight flywheel and nib clutch ... all of the bits to swap auto-manual for an e46

Was running fine when pulled. No overheating. The reason for pulling: swap in m54b30 to build a zhp wagon
