Rod Bearing Service Kit - BMW S85 E60 M5 E63 M6

Regular price $923.27 USD
Regular price Sale price $923.27 USD

We have put together a rod bearing service package based on our experience of what works in our shop. This kit includes our well known ACL rod bearing package with custom sizing to give .0005" additional clearance over stock rod bearings. We've included Genuine BMW rod bolts, an oil pan gasket, engine mounts, and an oil filter kit to get this job done right. There are so many choices out there when it comes to what parts to use when doing your own rod bearing service and we wanted to take some of the guess work out of it. We suggest this package to each and every customer that comes to our shop for rod bearing service. This engine has bearings that are a bit tight from the factory so we have increased bearing clearance slightly in this kit to correct for that. We've had great success with this package over the last few years. We added engine mounts to this package as we have found that the S85 in the E60 M5 and E63 M6 is particularly hard on engine mounts and most cars require an engine mount replacement at about the same interval that they require rod bearings.

Our suggestion is to replace rod bearings approximately every 70k miles.
