Excerpt: The M20 is an inline-6 piston engine by BMW. Initially designated M20, the 12-valve, belt driven SOHC design was introduced in the 1977 BMW 520/6 and 320/6 as an entirely new design. With displacements ranging from 2.0 to 2.7 liters, it was the qlittle brotherq to the larger BMW M30 engine. It had 91 mm (3.6 in) bore-spacing instead of 100 mm (3.9 in) of the M30. It was intended to replace the larger displacement 4-cylinder motors and was born out of BMW's conviction that a small six had more development potential than a large four (i.e. 2 liters+) Powering the E21 and E30 3-Series, as well as E12, E28 and E34 5 Series cars, it was produced for nearly two decades, with the last examples powering the E30 325i touring built until April 1993. By that time, the newer twin-cam M50 engines with 4 valves per cylinder had already been used in the E36 and E34 for a couple of years. Three different head castings were used over the engine's production run. The earliest was #1264200 aka the q200.q These were used in all e21 320/6 and 323i and e12 520/6 engines and later in the e28 and e30 eta engines (eta denoting the 'efficiency' version of the engine, with a lower engine redline amongst other focused differences aimed at increasing fuel economy). The next version was #1277731 aka the q731.q This head...Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online.
