In Reply to: Leakdown questions... posted by Brett on February 25, 2000 at 14:30:20:
: My 1995 530i has 53K miles and runs very well to this day, BUT I would really like to add a Jim C. chip and have been told NOT to chip the motor until I know whether or not the motor passes the leakdown test or requires replacement. I have browsed the www.530 website, but would like feedback from fellow E34 V8 owners on the following issues:
: 1) any one had the leakdown test in Orange County, CA and if so how was the outcome and at dealership?
: 2) if you have had your short block replaced, what exactly did you say to have them complete the test and or replace the short block.
: Thanks in advance.
