BMW N54 Engine Intake Valve Cleaning with Walnut Shell Blasting Equipment
http://www.BMWExcluservice.com/ From the car owner, Abheek Sen: "Before, my car had a rough idle in from a cold start, I was getting some misfires with my tuned engine, and the car felt a little sluggish. I used to be overly wary about getting on it because it felt my car was pretty slow, even with my modifications. Last night, after I picked up my car, I pulled out of the parking lot and gave it the beans... let's just say i had a school boy's goofy grin on my face for a few minutes after that. The car felt alive, like it was brand spanking new. With all my modifications, the car felt more put together, responsive... the torque monster that it is." Modern engines, including the BMW N54 on cars like the 335i and 135i, are direct injection, which yields more power than conventional fuel injection. In direct injection engines, the fuel is injected directly into the combustion chamber of each cylinder and not in the intake tract. Direct injection has its disadvantages, as the intake valves can become carbonized from exposure to substantial quantities of fuel and oil. Over time, carbonization can lead to problems with engine efficiency and power. Carbonized intake valves can lead to bumpy idle, diminished throttle response, and can lead to increased oil consumption. Walnut shell blasting is an effective method for cleaning the engine intake of your car without damaging the intake valve, valve guide, or intake port.

BMW N54 Turbo Rattle Clanking Noise Caused By Failure Turbo Chargers
This video show how to check to see if you have the turbo rattle that is covered under an extended warranty for 8 years 80,000 miles on many BMW's with the N54 Engine. The rattle is caused often by a worn pivot bearing in the arm that controls the waste gate valve. When it does not closes correctly the rattle can result. This can also cause a check engine light and the 30FF Boost pressure too low fault.
Done with about 7000miles on the motor.
