RB Turbo PCV

Hey guys

I'm ramping up with a list of components for my intake clean with intake profile gaskets, a new valve cover gasket, BMS OCC (which I already have but haven't got around to installing)

One component for which I wish to upgrade is the PCV valve.

Rob Beck from RB Turbos offers a custom PCV valve which basically has been designed to improve upon the existing ventilation system to minimise oil vapour buildup.

http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15382





DIY Install instructions:

http://www.n54tech.com/forums/showpo...&postcount=190

RB normally charge $45 per valve + P&H which these days the cheapest option by usps is $23.95 due to their price hike, but Rob is keen to help us guys out downunder and offer me a bulk discount at a reduced price.

The cost will be $45 AUD per valve delivered to your doorstep anywhere in Australia (I will distribute them once they all arrive in Australia).

If you're interested please let me know

For those of you who have minor oil leaks, and would be doing a walnut blast/intake clean the following part #'s are what you would require:


List of part #'s:

Intake manifold profile gaskets: 11 61 7 547 242

Item #2:

Blow by vent hose 11 15 7 553 949 (RB reccomend replacing this item, if you have a OCC you don't need to)



Valve cover kit This is due to a few small minor oil leaks I have found around the engine, which apparently is quite common on the N54

7544369 bolts x 26
11 12 7 565 286 gasket
11 12 7 548 063 bolts x 3
11 12 7 556 977 bolts x 2

These bolts are Al, and its recommended that you replace them, as Al has lower transformation properties in comparison to steel, and thus can fatigue and break off easily upon re torquing or removal.

Great thread. This is a part of the N54's health that usually just gets ignored, but the PCV system includes the check valve hose (and optional OCC), PCV valve, the valve cover gasket, and the valve cover itself. All are susceptible to fault especially over time. These faults can lead to oil consumption and apparent turbo failure when it really is not the case.

Anyway, thanks for the interest if at anything else this gives you all the data you need to keep your PCV system operating in tip top condition.

Put me down! $45 for a little more piece of mind won't go astray!

I have a OCC already.

Do you need to remove the intake to install?

Are you able to keep a running list Shane?

So there's no minimum order required?

Update guys!

The valves have been paid for, Rob expects them to be sent out later this week.

If that's the case expect a mid-late June delivery to your doorstep.

Latest update from Rob:

Assembled 67 last night, and allotted them to orders that had already been received prior to yours. The remaining units are due in later week, and that's when you'll go out.

Thanks,
Rob
