Can anyone tell me why after replacing valve cover gaskets and intake gaskets and 2 secondary valves why my 545i still burns oil and smokes when idling?

Yeah let me get my crystal ball out, oh wait its at the shop getting fixed.

But seriously, how many miles on the car? Burns oil how? Smoke out the exhaust? Smoke coming off the engine? Oil dripping under car? Alternator covered in oil? Front timing chain gasket leaking? Rings fried?

So um more detail?

You're lucky that hundred shot of NOS didn't blow the welds on the intake! Now, me and the mad scientist got to rip apart the block... and replace the piston rings you fried.
