Aluminum pistons have a compression height of 31. This is a square engine, since the diameter of the cylinder and piston stroke had the same amount to 84 mm, and form the so-called square engine. Sulfur acts as a corrosive agent against Nikasil and led to a lot of the early engines having premature bore-liner wear.

Specifications are as follows: compression ratio — 10. Oil cooler seal was a recall item.
Also check to see if the engine is the N51 or N52. The world market engine used lined aluminium cylinders instead of a cast iron cylinder block, resulting in lighter engines. Stock cast iron headers from 92-95 can be used. Thicker sway bars do wonders on M50 E30s. If there is a kit available for e39 then I would probably do this mod.
