G.A.S. New Product Releases

N52, M56 and M62tu CCV Upgrade Kits Almost Ready for Testing

German Auto Solutions is close to releasing our CCV upgrade systems for the BMW N52, M56 and M62tu engines.

Our upgrade kits address the common failures of the OEM BMW design and is serviceable without the need to remove the valve cover on the M56 and N52 engines.

Almost three years in development, German Auto Solutions ingenious replacement system for the problem prone BMW M54 CCV is finally in production.

The GAS replacement CCV incorporates multiple new design features to make it the most effective product of its kind at recovering oil from the engine’s blow by gasses. The G.A.S. CCV is also fully serviceable to allow easy five minute cleaning at every oil change.

German Auto Solutions is proud to announce another high quality and affordable performance upgrade product. Our solid ball joint monoball replacement for the stock rubber upper front control arm bushings are in stock and ready for shipment.

This performance suspension upgrade consists of new BMW sealed “M-Car” solid ball joints, CNC machined anodized aluminum carrier sleeves, stainless steel mounting collars and stainless steel fasteners.

By replacing the stock rubber bushings with our solid ball joints BMW owners will receive a significant handling improvement via more precise steering control and improved steering feedback. As usual these are very high quality pieces that are machined to exacting tolerances and will include a link to a very detailed instruction page.

G.A.S. has also developed a custom pressing tool for rental which allows you to remove the stock rubber bushings from the control arm without the need to remove the entire control arm from the vehicle. This is a German Auto Solutions exclusive that will save you considerable time and money.

The highly acclaimed German Auto Solutions Cam Timing Tool Kits are now available as a rentals.

The rental period is for two weeks with an optional two week extension also available.

bmw m62tu cam tool kitWe are proud to anounce the release of our BMW M62-M62tu Cam Timng Tool Kit. When we design any of our tool sets, we start out by purchasing the OEM BMW factory tools, we analyze them, and then we set out to produce a tool set that does not compromise OEM quality or accuracy, is less expensive to manufacture and easier to use. We almost never copy the factory tools (or anyone’s tools), we take a fresh look at the function required and usually come up with a better, easier and more accurate way of doing things. Our M62-tu kit is a perfect example of this innovative re-engineering technique.

Just like our M54 kits, our M62 tools are a “Top of the Line” product. They are 100% precision CNC machined by us here in the USA, then color anodized and clearly laser etched. Our BMW M62-62tu kit is more accurate and less expensive than any competitive kit on the market. Complete “step-by-step” instructions for using the tools are available in the “Support” section of the website.

Our German Auto Solutions M54 VANOS Cam Timing Tools are 100% precision CNC machined by us here in the USA.

Complete “step-by-step” instructions for using the tools and properly setting cam timing are in the “Support” section of the website.

We offer our M54 VANOS Cam Timing Tools in both a “Personal” and “Master” version.

Catastrophic cooling system failures are a fairly common problem on BMW vehicles. The problem is related to the cooling system maximum relief pressure that BMW has chosen to run, coupled with an almost entirely plastic set of cooling system components.

The German Auto Solutions 1.2 bar Coolant Cap uses 100% original BMW internal components that have been recalibrated to vent at a much safer pressure of 1.2 bar. This top of the line coolant cap is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum alloy, color anodized to prevent corrosion and enhance beauty, then laser etched with the caps specification and the German Auto Solutions name. This cap is not just an inexpensive solution to a potentially very inconvenient and very expensive failure, but is a very nice dress up item as well.

German Auto Solutions is now stocking the Beisan Systems VANOS seal repair kits for the BMW M54 engines.

This is currently the only solution out there for the problem of degrading VANOS piston seals.

bmw m54 disa gold valve
For those who want an easy and permanent solution to the DISA valve problems, we offer a brand new OEM DISA Valve with the “G.A.S. Upgrade kit” already installed!

Our M54 DISA Gold Valve is available in both 2.5 liter and 3.o liter versions.

The DISA valve, otherwise known as the “Intake Manifold Adjuster Unit”, is located on the side of the intake manifold and is a common failure on the M54 BMW engines. 

At German Auto Solutions we thoroughly analyzed the DISA valve and engineered a permanent solution that addresses all the weak points of the original design. Your BMW DISA valve can now last the life of your vehicle with our repair and upgrade kit. Our kit is available in both 2.5 liter and 3.0 liter versions.

German Auto Solutions Purchases BMW 135i for product development geared toward the BMW E8x and E9x Platforms

German Auto Solutions picks up a nice E82 135i M-Sport BMW. The 1 and 3 series E8x and E9x platforms have become very popular “tuner” cars because of their affordability and their 300+ HP N54 and N55 engines.

We plan on using our 135i to develop our own line of performance products under the “GAS Performance” name.

Initially we plan on products such as complete suspension kits, intercoolers and our own custom performance tunes.

German Auto Solutions to add Motorcycle Products

German Auto Solutions will be developing products for BMW Motorcycles in the near future. 

Most of us here at GAS are motorcycle riders, and more specifically “BMW Motorcycle” riders. It only stands to reason that we would eventually delve in making products for them.

Before German Auto Solutions became German Auto Solutions, we were a manufacturer of high performance motorcycle parts, and a motorcycle engine building and dyno tuning shop.

German Auto Solutions Purchases High End Portable CCM

German Auto Solutions has purchased a high end portable coordinate measuring machine for product development and quality control.

The difficulty in developing products that mount to engines, or to other large or heavy components, is acquiring highly accurate dimensional data from them. Things like engines are too heavy and cumbersome to lift up onto a typical fixed CCM’s granite table.

The Romer Arm portable CCM solves this problem by allowing precision measurements to be made from a portable device that can be taken to the component being measured instead of the other way around. Our Romer Arm can make dimensional measurements on an engine with an accuracy of plus or minus 0.001 inch while the engine is mounted to an engine stand or even still in the vehicle.

Our new Romer arm will make the development of many of our new products much easier and less costly. Acquiring accurate measurement data up front eliminates the need to machine multiple prototypes to check and adjustment the part for proper fitment.

German Auto Solutions receives some cool new manufacturing equipment.

Boss LaserG.A.S. takes delivery of our new laser cutter/engraver. Initial plans for this new laser include engraving the GAS logo and other information on our anodized parts, laser cutting our silicone CCV vacuum diaphragms, and cutting out custom foam inserts to finally allow us to offer professional tool boxes for our tool kits.

At German Auto Solutions we are all about quality control which is why we try to keep all aspects of our manufacturing process in house. The only process that is currently not done in house is the color anodizing of our aluminum parts.

German Auto Solutions has purchased N52 B3.0 & N62 B44 engines for product development.

German Auto Solutions will soon be manufacturing VANOS timing tool kits for the BMW N52, N54 & N62 engines along with other repair and cosmetic upgrade products.
