Cleaning carbon from intake ports and valves on BMW and MINI turbo engines N54 N55

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- This DIY (Do It Yourself) How To Video shows how to use a media blaster and walnut shell blasting media to clean the carbon (decarbon) from the intake ports and valves on the BMW and MINI turbocharged engines.. We will be performing this service on an N54 6-cylinder. The N55 will be similar. This applies to the 135i, 335i, 535i, X5 and similar models. NOTE: It is important to put the vehicle in "sleep mode" before beginning any work. This powers down all modules and computers, allowing the various sensors to be disconnected without generating faults in the systems. Perform this step as follows: 1) Place the vehicle in the position where it will be worked on. 2) Open the hood and the driver's window. Close all other windows, doors and trunk. 3) Turn off all systems and accessories and remove the key. 4) Move the key at least 20 feet away from the vehicle. 5) Apply parking brake and place transmission in NEUTRAL (manual transmission) or PARK (automatic transmission) 6) Wait 20 minutes. 7) Once the vehicle is in the sleep mode, do activate any electrical accessories or systems (besides bumping the starter, as shown), close the hood or open the doors, trunk or windows. With the introduction (in the US) of the N54 twin turbo 6-cylinder engines in the late 2000s (135i, 335i, 535i, X5), and now the N55 single turbo, N20 4-cylinder turbo and all the rest of the turbo and naturally aspirated "N" 4-clyinder, 6--cylinder and V8 engine family, we are seeing the effects of heavy carbon build-up in the intake ports and valves. BMW has even recognized this and has implemented a "de-carbon" program for many of these engines. The N54 and N55 3.5 twin and single turbo engines are the most susceptible to the heavy carboning (so far). BMW dealers will be happy to perform the de-carbon service for a fee of $600 to $800, and up. The de-carbon service involves removal of the intake manifold and blasting of the ports and valves with walnut shells, using a special fixture (plus a media blaster and a shop-vac). The de-carbon service is really not all that difficult, but does require some special tools, as noted above. Bavarian Autosport has developed a full Do It Yourself (DIY) program for the de-carbon service on the N54 twin turbo engines (more to come, just ask us if you have a different model). We will provide the special adapters, media blaster, walnut shell media, replacement gaskets and full video instruction. The media blaster kit is available for purchase or rental.

Need additional tech help? Please visit our tech blog for thousands of Tech and DIY BMW and MINI articles at: http://blog.bavauto.com/ --- See if this sounds familiar... As you pass by your BMW or MINI, checking out the smart lines of the body, the tires look just fine to you. And when you clean the wheels and the tires, or add some air, the tread blocks look nice and deep. Then just a short time later, you are under the car and discover with some amazement and disbelief (or you are told by a technician) that the tires need to be replaced -- to the tune of several hundred dollars -- because the insides of the tires are completely bald! (See Fig. 1.) How can this be? You've driven only a few thousand miles on them, or had them on the car for just a couple of seasons of use... and the outside tread looks almost new! Welcome to the world of negative camber. The suspension on our BMWs and MINIs is designed to deliver comfort, performance, safety and economy. These four considerations do not always make good bedfellows, and the chassis designers must compromise on one or more of these goals. For example, comfort and performance require lightweight suspension components (in comparison to chassis weight). This results in a trade-off in long-term durability plus sensitivity to issues that can cause vibrations. Similarly, designing for performance requires suspension geometry and alignment specifications that may cause accelerated wear on components -- not the best for economy. Our BMWs and MINIs are designed to be comfortable and safe at high speeds on unrestricted highways, tricky mountain roads and those beautiful, country two-lanes that point to destinations yet unknown. To be safe in all of these scenarios, the chassis and suspension must be designed primarily for performance. This is accomplished through the suspension geometry design (how the suspension parts move as the suspension is compressed and extended) and the wheel alignment. What is wheel alignment? It is how the wheel/tire and the suspension members are sitting when the vehicle is at rest. There are three main elements in alignment -- Toe, Caster and Camber. Of these, the factory BMW and MINI camber settings are fairly aggressive and can produce the inner tread wear that BMW and MINI owners are familiar with. What is camber? Simply put, camber is the angle of the wheel, top to bottom, when viewed from the front or rear of the vehicle. Camber is measured in degrees. Positive camber (e.g. +3°) means the top of the wheel is tilted away from the car. If the top of the wheel is leaning in towards the car, the camber is a negative (see photo below). Most high performance cars such as BMWs come with some negative camber for better handling. People who race their BMWs at the track like even more negative camber. But excessive negative camber will result in less-than optimal straight-line tracking and faster wear of the tire tread. (And with the price of high-performance tires these days, that can add up to a major expense in a hurry.) Both front and rear tires are susceptible to uneven wear caused by excessive camber. That wear is even more pronounced on BMWs with "plus-size" wheels and tires. While the factory camber settings are indeed aggressive for a daily driven, highway commuter application, the problems are magnified when the suspension is modified by lowering the vehicle ride height (installing sport springs). When the BMW or MINI is lowered, by installing sport springs or suspension systems, the negative camber is increased, further reducing tire life.
