Dr. Vanos Replacement/Update Vanos Unit

Price: $249.99

Part Number: 0244



If your BMW has a noisy vanos unit you have just found the solution to your problem!

Does your engine sound more like a diesel truck than a German sports car? Have you noticed a lack of low end power as the miles have piled up? If you have a high mileage BMW model with a vanos cam timing system, then it may be time to replace it with a freshly rebuilt unit from Dr. Vanos.

The kit comes as a fully rebuilt vanos unit with modified internals to eliminate the dreaded vanos rattle. Each vanos unit is fully rebuilt using custom machine work along with high performance seals and O-rings to not only eliminate the dreaded vanos rattle, but to also restore lost power and increase the life of the unit. Dr. Vanos units will stand up to more abuse making them ideal for track cars, race cars, and forced induction applications.

***Core charge is included in price. Core charge will be refunded upon receipt of your rebuildable core. Dual vanos unit has a $150 core charge. Single vanos unit has a $100 core charge.***
