Asking Price:
None
Item Interest
N54 out of a 2008 BMW 335I that was removed at 18k miles.

The engine was experiencing misfire codes when removed by the dealership and it was discovered that one of the pistons had a crack in it (visible from top).

I was going to remove the rotating assembly and install a forged rod and piston setup; however, I never got around to it and have sold my car since. The cylinders look good with no signs of damage. The cylinder head appears to be fine and was installed and running at the time of removal.

I will be posting pictures in the near future and am able to crate/ship if need be.

Asking $2000


















Pistons in order front to back or 1 - 6. Damaged piston is #4

No turbos, sorry. They are cheap now anyhow and nobody wants stockers.

It didn't crack. It literally dissolved. You can see the picture above. So odd, no scoring, nothing in the combustion chamber, no signs of a 'chunk' leaving.

Detonation. Either that cylinder leaned out on fuel, too much timing advance on load/boost, or both. Seeing that there was an injector recall, im thinking it leaned out...?

I would agree. When it went to the dealer with misfire codes, they performed the HPFP campaign and replaced all the injectors trying to chase down what was wrong with it.

This was in an early '08 car and had not received any 'updates' since new.
