Curt I live in Columbus as well but drive up to Detroit pretty regularly. 75k miles on an N54 135i, any idea how much that might set me back in time and cost? You can PM me if you’d like. Thanks!

Curtis charged me $350 including gaskets with intake manifold/charge pipe cleaning. It took about 3 hours after work on a weekday and my valves were especially bad with 146k miles and never been done.

Worth every penny, see my review of my experience in his thread.

I live in Columbus and will do it for 350 including gaskets if you're interested. We will have to wait until it gets warmer though as I don't have a garage and will have to do it in my driveway.

Unbelievable timing...I just bought the shells, blaster, and gaskets yesterday. The only thing I need now is the BMW tool (or 3D printed equivalent) and a brass adapter.

Oh well, I need to deal with an OFHG that decided to start leaking anyway.

Anyone in Columbus have some used injectors they'd be willing to get rid of? Really only need one working injector to get me by for a few weeks. Preferably index 9.

I ended up getting one from napa, but thank you!
Also, sorry to thread jack, I forgot this thread was about walnut blasting and not just general chat.

Interested! What does your setup look like? I might also be interested in tossing you a few bucks to rent it for a weekend and do it myself if that's something you'd be interested in as well. I don't have an air compressor though...

My setup looks like my driveway with a rented air compressor from lowe's... My 21 gallon air compressor can't keep up so I rent a gas one from lowe's to do it. I'd be happy to rent the tools to ya with a deposit in case anything breaks. Expect 6-8 hours for your first go at it.
