The BMW M62 is a V8 DOHC piston engine which replaced the M60 and was produced from 1994-2005. Compared with its M60 predecessor, the M62 features Alusil cylinder liners[1] (in markets where high sulphur fuel was sold) and a single row timing chain.[2] In 1998, variable valve timing (called VANOS by BMW) was added to the M62.

The M62 engine block is made from Aluminium with Alusil or Nikasil cylinder liners,[3][4] depending on the country of intended sale.

The M62 is fitted with Sequential fuel injection[5] and double overhead camshafts with 4 valves per cylinder. It also sports fracture-split forged connecting rods.[6]Variable valve timing is fitted to the later "M62TU" variants.


The M62B48 is a (4,837 cc (295 cu in)) version producing 276 kW (375 PS; 370 hp) and 510 N·m (376 lb·ft) of torque.[7] The stroke is 89 mm (3.5 in) and the bore is 93 mm (3.7 in). Technically this engine is similar to the M62TUB44, with double VANOS on both the intake cams and exhaust cams. This engine developed byAlpina is based on the M62B46.
