  • FS: S14 Motor 114K Still In Car

    For sale is an S14 motor with 114K miles. $4800

    Please keep in mind that as these cars become more rare, less are wrecked and converted so complete motors are becoming more and more scarce.

    Motor will ship with Plenum, TBs & Intake.
    Not included: starter, alternator, harness, AFM, header, PS pump, AC comp.

    See video of it running at:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVV2nQVoXoM

    Photos of compression and leakdown gauges follow.

    Plan to leave it in the car until sold in case anyone wants to have it inspected.

    Compression numbers were:
    1) 180 (Was at 180 before photo taken)
    2) 175
    3) 170
    4) 175










    By the time the leakdown was done, the engine had almost completely cooled.

        did you have the throttle wide open during compression checks?

            i ask because if not, the real compression will probably end up around 210.

            and during leakdown, could you hear where the leak was?
            hissing in exhaust pipe = exh valves
            intake - intake valves
            dipstick tube/ oil fill cap = rings

            nice presentation of the ad btw. great to see someone posting the engine test info up front when selling!

              I agree with the above assessment. Actually, per BMW spec, when performing a comp test you should wait 1 hour (as a cool down period) from normal operating temperature before performing the test. A test on an almost cool engine will be lower than spec. Your "real" numbers are probably above 200. And remember, the variance across all 4 cylinders should be within 5% for compression #'s.

                The radiator and transmission are already out of the car so from cold, I ran it just long enough for it to get a bit warm (about a minute or two).

                I then did the leak down test with the oil cap off but could not hear any conclusive location of air escaping intake, exhaust or crankcase.

                By the time I got to the compression test, the motor was pretty cool. I had the throttle open but the battery was a spare at the shop and was not fully charged.

                I am leaving it in the car for the time being so the tests can be done again if necessary or in case someone wants to hear it run.

                Thanks, Steve

                  Kush, I did some checking today on international shipping but did not get far. I can crate it for shipping but please let me know what parts you would need. My plan was to sell it complete with intake but without the harness and accessories but the smaller and lighter it is the less it's likely to cost to ship.

                  If anyone has input on international shipping or costs that would be helpful.

                  Thanks, Steve
