11000 Mile Update

This is the most amaizing mod for M54! No oil consumption and no noticiable side effects! It is so nice not to worry about hydrolocking the engine in cold weather and adding oil multiple times between oil changes. My OCI - 6.5 - 7.5K.

Just reached 12000 miles with this mod. Currently at 201000 miles on the odometer. Engine runs like new. No mayo and no oil consumption. Highly recommend.

Good to hear, I never have mayo in the summer, but come winter time it's terrible. I'm tired of replacing ccv's every 2 years...

would that kit be a new ccv or is that bypassing the ccv with a pcv?

It is bypassing the factory CCV system and using a traditional PCV in place. And yes this will work on any car with a M54, M52TU, I've done this on numerous E46's already. My X5 is still on the original PCV valve that's been going strong for over a year now, still no oil consumption or any negative side effects.

Ricky Bobby will become famous soon enough
^Thats phenomenal and thanks for the constant updates - in a few years if I need to attend to this CCV system I would most likely definitely be doing this mod.

Ok, I did this yesterday, it wasn't terrible, and like a few other people mentioned you have some more vacuum, you notice it trying to take the oil fill cap off after you shut the engine off, but no lights and I'm looking forward to being mayo free!
