Walnut Blasting BMW N54 & N55 is a MUST

Hello Everyone

Check out our blog about getting your N54 and N55 Intake manifold cleaned by walnut shell blasting. You should have this service done every 30,000 miles and before tuning your engine. Here is a link to the full blog write up on the service we performed on our own Mod Expert Alan's E92 335i and a few pictures


http://blog.modbargains.com/get-nuts-feed-bmw-n55-walnuts-get-clean-tune/





This is is an actual photo of how Mod Expert Alan Weiís N54 looked after 70,000 miles. Isnít that a disgusting mess? Whatís more alarming is that YOUR INTAKE VALVES PROBABLY LOOK JUST AS NASTY!






And hereís an actual photo of Alanís motor right after doing the service. You can actually see the valve now!









Walnut Blasting now available at ModBargainsí Install shop, Mod Auto! Take advantage of our introductory pricing!

Yeah.... sooner or later you will need to have your intake manifold and valves cleaned.
How many miles are on the vehicle?

It wouldn't be a bad Idea. Do you have a Oil Catch can yet?
That will greatly reduce the build up of gunk in the intake manifold.

ModBargains, how much do you charge for the walnut cleaning? I have an 09 535xi with 80k miles, walnut cleaning has never been done on it and my Idle is a little rough at times due to the dirty valves.
