Schrick Camshaft Set – E36 M3-spec – 252/244 Degree
These Schrick camshafts are the same specs as the stock US S50 cams – Intake: 252 degree, 10.2mm lift Exhaust: 244 degree, 9.5mm lift
With original S50/S52 cams in short supply, and a new set running over $2,000 from BMW, you can source new M3-spec cams from Schrick. These are the same specs as the US S50 engine and very close to the stock S52 cams. These make a great upgrade for M50 (325i, 525i) and M52 engines (328i, 528i) with the proper tuning. These bolt in just like the stock and M3 cams with no special hardware upgrades required – use your stock valve springs, lifters, etc. But for reliability we recommend replacing the lifters, valve springs, and retainers with new stock parts on high mileage engines.
