Are there any special concerns with the S14b20
I new to this engine, and I'm putting it and the transmission in a '73 2002tii. I'm wondering if there are any issues with this particular engine. I have read about some of the potential intake problems with S14's in general but, is there anything else?
Just for the info, the engine and transmission are out of a 1990 320is "Italian M3".

I don't think there are many worries...
The only things I can think of are: intake manifold gasket leaks (simple gasket replacement) are fairly common, and the recommendation to upgrade the tensioner to either the one from the US S50 or Euro S52 engines. I assume you have the oil pan baffle (probably installed on every S14 by now...)
Check out Gustave's website for a couple additional S14 tips.
