Dual Vanos

At DrVanos.com we have addressed all the common problems related to the Dual Vanos and provided solutions to those problems in a complete, ready to install kit. Each dual vanos is fully rebuilt using modified bearings along with high-performance Viton O-rings and Teflon seals that will not only eliminate the vanos rattle, but also restore lost power due to worn out internals. Our vanos units will stand up to more abuse than the stock units, and will easily last the life of the car.

  • The Dual Vanos fits all M52tu/M54/M56 engines.

    • E46 6-Cylinder
    • E60 525i/530i
    • E39 525i/528/530i '99&up
    • E53 X5 3.0i
    • E83 X3 2.5i/3.0i
    • Z4 2.5i/3.0i
    • Z3 2.5i/2.8i/3.0i

  • We fully disassemble, clean and rebuild the vanos, install new, high quality Viton O-rings and Teflon seals, and the internal bearings are modified to eliminate any rattling noises. We also clear coat the solenoids to prevent any surface oxidation. Finally, the vanos is fully tested to ensure the solenoids are working and the vanos performs properly.
  • Refundable Core Deposit

    The Dual Vanos includes a $150 core deposit. The core deposit allows us to send you a rebuilt vanos at a much lower price than a new unit would cost from the dealer. By sending out a complete, ready to install vanos the customer has the ability to replace their vanos as quickly as possible and then return their old vanos for the core refund. This helps to keep your downtime to a minimum.
    All US domestic vanos orders come with a pre-paid UPS return shipping label so you can get your core refund quicker and with less hassle!
  • Installation and special tools

    We have created a specialized installation document for the Dual Vanos kit. You can download the document below.
