    rattle still present after replacing vanos seals AND rattle repair kit .....

    Me and my buddy tackled this a couple weeks ago, not a big job at all. He's really good, built many motors and I trust him 100%. Anyway, we replaced the seals, and the rattle repair kit both from beisan systems. Great ship time btw. .. Fired it up and the noise was gone .. for about a day. Later came back. What gives? Anyone ever experience this before? lol I really don't want to do this job again.

    The sound is still coming from the front of the VC at EXACTLY 2k rpm. And you can hear something jingling at idle. ****ing annoying.

    I feel your pain. I had a new Vanos unit put in under CPO and the rattle was back a few weeks later.

    Are you sure it's not your DISA making the noise at idle?

    Ugh I didn't even want to go there .. That's not cheap. But I still am having a weird torque curve :/ I feel power drop off at 2.5k - 4 then it flys .. which accurately describes a faulty DISA. Damn.

    Sorry to hear that Keith. I recall the thread discussion where I know you were hoping for a longer run before having to do it on your own outside of CPO. Not sure why they would rattle so soon Jesse, but I'm interested to hear what you find.

    no they are not cheap, but they are pretty easy to replace at least. something you and your buddy can easily do.

    I mean the M54 isn't like the S54 ... we don't have loose cam gears .. -__- what else could be the culprit.
