The Dr. Vanos Update Dual Vanos Unit is the ultimate solution if your engine sounds more like a diesel truck than a fine German sports car. If you have a high-mileage BMW with a VANOS cam timing system, and if you've noticed a lack of low-end power as the miles add up, on top of the can-of-marbles sound from the front of your engine, then it may be time to replace your VANOS with a freshly rebuilt unit from Dr. Vanos.

The kit comes as a fully rebuilt VANOS unit with modified internals, such as high-performance seals and O-rings, to completely eliminate the dreaded VANOS rattle. Plus, this is a great way restore lost power and increase the life of the unit. Dr. Vanos units will stand up to more abuse than stock, making them ideal for track cars, race cars, and forced induction applications.
