Default Fixing wastegate rattle - what else? - 09-10-2018, 07:20 PM

Im getting myself "motivated" to get my wastegate rattle fixed.
Doesnt look like a job that's super complicated, just alot of work if i plan to do it in my garage on jackstands, but with a help of a friend nothing's impossible

While I will have my turbos out i will change the oil pan gasket cause its leaking. I'll probably put ******* ********* since I've got the JB4 installed. (if anyone got used - pm me). Oil change - yes of course.

Is there anything else i should do while my subframe is down?
Is it worth to put in another 100$ and change the wastegate actuators?

My car has 70k miles and does not burn any oil so i think turbos are in good condition. I am planning to go single turbo but I just can't stand the rattle the whole time i save money for ST.
For now the best way is probably upgrade everything else (fuel pumps, intercooler, exhaust, clutch, brakes ect.) and just fix the wastegates so i can use the car in the meantime till i just kill the stock turbos.

BTW how much does the stock cluch is able to hold?

Both pump and thermostat look really fresh, i bought this car about 3-4 months ago, went for 1 trackday and performed fine for a stock car. If the car has 70k miles im assuming it was changed in the last 5-10k.
I was thinking, maybe engine mounts but i'll probably change them when going to single turbo.

I've been through 2 water pumps. Both failed around 70k. I wouldn't assume it's been changed - it just hasn't failed yet.

If someone got rid of the car at 70,000 miles it's because they didn't want to fix things like the water pump, the oil leaks and control arms, and.....

When I look at used BMWs the 70k-80k mile cars I am most cautious of.

God bless you for going in there twice. There is something to consider when changing out parts cause your in there, it gets expensive and time consuming. While your in there, can lead up to a nightmare, fast. I'd just do the gates and and actuators, at least if these going to be some time, you'll know you won't have to worry about them. Also, make 100% about the leaks, you don't want to change something if it's not leaking.

Funny thing, I traded in my 535i with leaking water pump for this one (it had i think 120k miles, so probably that was the second water pump on that car)

But the pump like i've said looks brand new, I know that because i took the intercooler out to check is there any oil inside and had a good look under the engine; when i was changing transmission and diff oil.

There is not alot to choose if looking for e92 with n54, manual trans and idrive, so i just ran 200miles with cash in my hand and bough this one

That old saying,what happeneds to me, will happen to others? It's one of those parts that eventually will need to be done, now or later.
