    WPC Rod Bearings Install & Beisan Vanos Refresh

    Well guys after looking at all the Beisan Vanos refreshes being done and taking part in the WPC Treated Rod Bearings GB I decided it was about time to get to installing these parts to ensure reliability and longevity on my M3s S54.

    My car has been having a misfire (causing choking at low rpm take off) http://www.m3forum.net/m3forum/showthread.php?t=472135. This will be the first step. Once we solve this we will start on the Vanos and Rod Bearings.

    My car has 64,400km on the clock and the Rod bearing recall was performed at BMW Bahrain at 29,000km on the clock (meaning recall bearings only have 35,400km on them).

    Since then I have taken the car out for some track days and some spirited driving. I have only ever used Castrol TWS and change my oil around every 5-6000km. Many will say why change the rod bearing shells. My answer to that is Curiosity, Fun and Boredom...in that order lol.

    Here are some pics of the parts....

    So what exactly do you attribute the misfires to? VANOS?

    We checked the plugs and the number 6 was darker than the rest. i remember in a previous post i mentioned that the number 6 TB coupler was pinched and i had a massive leak. I think the cylinder was not getting enough air and thats why this happened. Replaced all and it seemed to be fine after the test drive.

    The next day when I went over and started the car to warm it up for another test drive I could feel the misfire again.
    I swapped coils 3 and 5 (misfire indicated on GT1) with 2 and 4 and then checked it again. Now it showed misfire in 2,3 & 4. Meaning its probably the solenoid.

    We'll swap it with the BEISAN re-manufactured and improved solenoid and report back ASAP.

    I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO GO AHEAD AT THE PRESENT TIME WITH THE WPC ROD BEARINGS INSTALL. MY BEARINGS ARE FAIRLY NEW AND VERY LOW MILEAGE SINCE BEING CHANGED BY BMW UNDER RECALL.

    Update:



    The Injectors were professionally cleaned from a local shop and they reported them being very dirty. Now the misfire is still there but appears much later. Still showing 0 on misfire counter on GT1.


    Any way we decided to go ahead with the VANOS rebuild to see if that would help. The Vanos unit was pretty Dirty so Got it looking all new with a lot of cleaning and BEISAN parts. We will also do a valve adjustment at the same time just to check as I did one only a little while back. I'll post up the findings later on today....

    After we got done we put the parts in the engine bay back and prepped the car for road test. Its not been bad at all, pulls hard. I will drive it over the next few days and write the new tune SAL sent me yesterday.


    Car did not choke or hesitate in the last 35km's. I have also sent a set of used injectors to RC Engineering to be rebuilt just as a precaution. Hopefully they'll come out just fine despite what a few people have said on the forum.
