E36 M3 3.0 S50 B30 Vanos
E36 M3 Single Vanos
|The Euro 3.0 M3 Vanos has a bigger reputation than the 3.2 Evo unit. However a bill for £2k plus is expected when a new unit is required. We have rebuilt and fitted a number of E36 M3 Signle Vanos units with excellent results.
The Vanos unit on the E36 M3 3.0 S50 is far less prone to any problems It is not immune though. The most common cause of problems is with the piston seals breaking up. Fixing this is all part of our reconditioning service.
Symptoms include rough idle, the infamous 'growling' noise and power loss below 4000rpm. This wont always appear on diagnostics as the Vanos has no direct electrical connection to the cars ECU.
What do we do??
The M3 Vanos is completely stripped down and cleaned thoroughly. The oil pump is rebuilt and all of the internal composite piston seals are replaced. Both solenoids are tested and then it is rebuilt using Viton O-rings and High Tensile Bolts.
The gears are modified to address the rattling.
We will sign off the unit as complete following a bench test of 1hour at 150psi.
