Pretty much the entire N54 market has gone Chinese, cast a logo into a housing and they show up on a pallet to be repackaged. Much easier process than building them one by one by hand using ones own...

They are probably advertised at 850-950hp or something crazy, because most of these sellers are oblivious to reality. Realistically they are "replica" OE frames, which we have found to be slightly...

You are going to have to just consider a problem with all of the things you did simultaneously with the turbos relating to oil loss/smoking, unfortunately this is quite a bit. The turbos, vacuum side...

Looks like you had some 6 year old Classic RB's, especially being a pre-inlet day setup, so cool they made it this far for you. Chances are they have some slightly burnt up thrust bearings honestly,...

All,

Our RB Turbo N54 business has been out of control (in a good way) recently, and our once hugely stocked core inventory has rapidly depleted, so we are looking to outright purchase some N54...

Nothing wrong with the old weld on style adapter, it was just a bit longer than the newer one and doesn't have a 2nd provision port.

You don't need to plug the head ports, so all good there, but...

I'd definitely give the extractor tool a whirl initially, I've had some decent luck with them in general use over the years.

Also when you are doing these head taps, always take some care and go...

They may have refurbished some N54 RB Classics over the years but honestly I'd be surprised if they have done over a couple sets, and more than likely it was only the one they made a video over.

Probably going to be tough to find anyone to service them at this point, as anyone who jumps onboard with a repair only will become responsible for their demise in the future.
