M54 rod bolt torque spec?
 
I purchased the Bentley manual but found there is very little information on the lower end of the engine.

I looked for a sticky with the specs but couldn't find one.

I need the torque spec on rod bolts for a 2002 M54 3.0L that I am rebuilding... also curious if they recommend disposing of the old bolts and using new ones?

The rods were damaged by a hydrolock and there was no heat damage.

Thanks for your help!

Not sure how or where it would be best placed... but since you are more familiar

Look it over and see if it would be appropriate for this forum

I'd be surprised if BMW didn't recommend replacing rod bolts. They are typically TTY (torque to yield) and stretch once.
If this were mine, I'd be using ARP rod bolts.

Aftermarket rods are on the way
 
I couldn't find a good set of used rods for a reasonable price so I ordered the Eagle rods with new hardware.:thumbup:
