The 2.0 L (1991 cc) M50B20 was introduced with the 1989 520i. It has an 80 mm bore and 66 mm stroke and produces 150 hp (110 kW). From the ‘93 model year onwards, the engine received a ‘technical update’ which included the addition of VANOS (VAriable NOckenwellen Steuerung), BMW’s variable valve timing system, on the intake cam. The engine thereafter became known as the M50TUB20.
