VANOS near Cincinnati?
Guys - my 2003 is approaching 100k miles. I'm looking into having the VANOS rebuilt/serviced/whatever as a preventative measure. I consider myself a pretty accomplished amateur mechanic but I've looked into this job and it's beyond both my abilities and my available free time.
I've spoken to my usual indy mechanic, who wants about $2,000 to cover parts and labor. He is an amazing guy and has done a ton of work for me, all top-notch, but that's a lot for my wallet and I'm not sure he's done this particular job before. I know he's done VANOS on a number of S54s but not sure about the S62.
So, right now I'm looking for someone within a reasonable distance that's done a few of these and could do it at a reduced rate.
Any help appreciated.
