    Seems like Dafoe is out of the valve adjustment game...so- Any recommendations for trusted Indy shops in the DMV area? I’m getting close to 60k and would love to find a shop that does great work on the S54 engine. Thank you!
  2. E46 M3
    I recently noticed when I place my foot lightly on the clutch pedal of my E46 M3, I feel a repetitive subtle click as the engine is running. It increases in frequency as the revs increase and feels almost like a pulse. I listened carefully to the engine with the hood open, the click I feel...

    Hi all! I have a very disconcerning sound from my 2004 M3 177k miles. Theres a tap/ticking sound around 2000 RPMS that increases as RPMs increase. I'm wondering if its valve clearance and will a valve adjustment fix this or is there something else? Theres no vanos or motor codes. It almost...

    Anyone familiar with doing valve adjustments try the "jackup the rear and rotate the wheels in gear" method to turn the crank? I'm curious as it seems there is some risk (albeit minor) in using the fan clutch to turn the engine backwards. Also, what are your opinions on the ECS (75% less...

    We took advantage of the wide open floor space at the new RaceWerkz Engineering facility just before they moved their equipment in and brought in some E46 M3's for a photoshoot. The full shoot can be seen here: http://thebuildjournal.com/racewerkz-engineering-photoshoot/...

    I'm looking to have my VANOS serviced by a local and reputable place but I can't seem to find a place with the proper tools to do so... I just want a VANOS service, filter, O-rings and valve adjustment as a normal maintenance thing for an '04 330ci.

    Quick question, Do the valves need to be adjusted on the M54 engine? I've seen a bunch of diy's for m3's but not for the other models. I just hit 100K and want to make sure that I'm not missing any maintenance needed. Thanks, Chris
