BMW N54

BMW N54

  The N54 twin turbo 3.0 light inline-6 has developed a reputation as a powerful and adaptable engine over the last few years. While it is a fantastic engine, there will inevitably be more blown engines and turbos as the N54 ages, and more upgrades become available. The N54 engine served many BMW models throughout its ten-year lifespan, beginning with the E9X series and ending with the 2016 BMW E89 Z4. Fortunately, the N54's internal components are impressive and capable of some performance figures, so unless you go tuning the boost to insane amounts, you're not likely to do any serious internal damage. Newer engines come with modern issues, and the N54 is unquestionably no different in this regard, particularly once they are put under more stress than when they were first built. Here at Oceanside Motorsports, your trusted BMW specialists can offer maintenance services to keep your N54 at its peak performance.   BMW N54 STANDARD MAINTENANCE ... read more

BMW Oil Leaks

BMW Oil Leaks

Engine oil's main function is to lubricate all of your engine's moving parts and lower friction. Without oil, your components would prematurely wear down from metal-to-metal contact, costing you money in repairs. Once the oil leaks are fixed, the N54 and the series of engines have been great and very lasting. However, when oil leaks are not dealt with quickly and expertly, they are not engines that perform well. After owning your BMW for a while, you can start to notice some things aren't functioning as well as they once did. Oil leakage from the engine is one problem you could have.            Common oil leaks are - Valve cover gasket, oil filter housing gasket, and oil pan gasket. Here at Oceanside Motorsports, we offer a lifetime warranty on all of those seals so once you pay for it once you will never pay for it again.

What Are Turbo Coolant Lines?

What Are Turbo Coolant Lines?

  Turbo coolant lines are designed to do exactly what they sound like they would do. They help retain cooler temperatures for the turbo on your car by rerouting coolant through a constant feed and return cycle. Over time, these rubber connecting Turbo hoses can dry out. They will eventually crack and leak coolant since they are constantly being exposed to extremely hot temperatures both internally and externally. It can be commonplace for these Turbo Coolant Hoses to leak for a very long time without any noticeable signs.  This is because the hoses lie beneath a cover, and the coolant will usually dissipate when contacting the hot engine before it can become a visible issue. Applications The Turbo Coolant Lines that we typically come across are found on the S63 and N63 BMW engines. The ‘Hot V Configuration,’ can be found on a variety of BMW V8 cars such as some 5-series and 7-series cars, along with models such as the X5, X6, M5, and M ... read more
