BMW Engine Rebuilding
BMW Engine specialists.
Mr Vanos has built up a reputation as one of, if not 'the' UK's leading M Power engine specialists. From M3's to M5's of any age and model. Our attention to detail and work ethic is second to none.
We also undertake diesel and non 'M' engines.
If you have an engine which you'd like remanufactured, please contact us for an estimate and further details. You can transport the engine or the whole vehicle to our workshops and following inspection and we will give you an estimate before carrying out any work.
We aim to provide you with a engine rebuilt, that matches the standards required by BMW, when the car left the production line.
Prices are generally fixed for certain engines, S65 E92 M3 and S85 E60 M5 engines for example. We have built 100's of these over the years and know exactly whats required for the major issues with these engines. Rod bearing failure being the biggest issue.
All our engines for road use come with 2 years / 20,000 miles warranty. Race engines are not covered under this guarantee.
We can also build a race engine to your exact requirements. We use many race components such as Carrillo, Arrow Precision, Cometic, ARP and JE to name but a few

After stripping the engine to bare component level, it is then placed into a cylindrical wash at high temperature and pressure along with cleansing chemicals. This brings the components to a “bright” metal state, by removing carbon deposits and debris.
Following this, we carry out an inspection to ascertain the requirements for bringing the engine back to a serviceable state. This may entail the cylinder block being re-honed and/or re-bored; pistons and/or piston rings being replaced; connecting rods being re-honed; crankshaft reground and/or polished; main and big end bearing shells will need to be replaced and the oil pump replaced.
Until we reach this stage, we cannot be certain of the full cost of the remanufacture process. Once we have ascertained the full extent of the work needed, we will inform you immediately.
A visual inspection of a cylinder head is performed once it is washed. We will take measurements to check for wear, cracks and for trueness. The head will then be pressure tested and refaced as necessary. We will also check the valve guides for wear and replace these as necessary. The valve seats are machined and new and/or refaced valves are then lapped into the head, following which we will carry out a vacuum test.
