Exclamation $249 SPECIAL IS BACK -- Walnut blast is a MUST on your N54!! (w/ pics!)

So last week we started our Intake Valve Walnut Blast Special and got lots of interest. For this reason we have made our walnut blast service an everyday special of Only $250 over at SSR Performance in Orange County, CA. We've gotten an insane amount of interest! Customers are coming in from North LA, Corona, Riverside, and even San Diego. It's very obvious why people are so anxious (if you're not, you probably should be) to get this done on their N54 motors when you take a little peek inside...

Here is a photo of the intake valves on a 32k mile 2008 335i (JB4 tune) we did 4 days ago. Before the cleaning the customer was noticing slow throttle response on WOT and a bumpy idle (if you're tuned, it is even MORE vital you get this done). It doesn't take a genius to see why after taking a look inside...



Since the N54 is a direct injection motor, the intake valves are only in contact with air and blowby gases from the crankcase breathing circuit, in which substantial quantities of fuel and oil can be found. This is opposed to non-direct injection motors in which fuel passes over the valves and acts as a cleaning agent so that the build of of carbon deposits does not occur. After several thousand miles of driving (approx. every 30k is when this service is recommended) deposits of carbonised fuel and oil in the intake tract can become fused on, as well as on the intake valves themselves. This process is often referred to as "carbonising", as you see in the photo above.

After some TLC (plus some sweat and elbow grease) from our team, these intake valves were looking like new...





Every customer is left with a HUGE smile on their face when they see the before and after of their intake valves. :happy It takes about 2.5 hours per vehicle. This specific customer was very happy with the whole process. He messaged us the next day and couldn't stop raving about how much better his car feels at idle, as well as the very noticeable increase in throttle response.

So if you have an N54 BMW with over 30k miles and have never had this done before today, hopefully this thread will show you the importance of why it is so vital that your direct injection motor get this service done as soon as possible. Sadly, there is no other way around it. If you have any questions about the process feel free to PM, email, or call us today!

Get your Walnut Blast done for only $250 SPECIAL Setup an appointment today, contact us anytime and we will make sure we work with you to setup an appropriate time and get your intake valves looking like new again!

Because the issue is a result of direct injection, yes, it is definitely recommended on the N55 motor as well. On the N55 motors excess carbon deposits on the intake valves have been seen as early as 20k miles

Definitely! Just to be clear guys, I forgot to mention, we DO replace all of the intake manifold gaskets for the $250 price. If replacement of the throttle body gasket is necessary, we add on the $10 cost of the gasket and replace it for a grand total of $260. Hardly ever is it necessary to replace the throttle body gasket.

We operate 7 days a week. However, our hours are a bit unorthodox. As follows:
Mon-Fri- 7pm-1am
Sat, Sun- 9am-5pm

We are only open by appointment at those times. If you need something done and your schedule conflicts with ours, just let us know and we will try our best to make it work for you.

Walnut blast take 2.5 - 3 hours.

Due to the popularity ( and number of dirty valves that need liberating!) we are going to be extending this deal through the end of the month. PM us on dates you may be available and we can pencil you in on the calendar!
