At DrVanos.com we have addressed some well known problems related to the Dual Vanos and provided solutions to those problems in a complete, ready to install kit. Each dual vanos is fully rebuilt using modified bearings along with high-performance Viton O-rings and Teflon seals that will not only eliminate the vanos rattle, but also restore lost power due to worn out internals. Our vanos units will stand up to more abuse than the stock units, and will last the life of the car.


Fully cleaned and rebuilt vanos unit with new Viton O-rings and Teflon seals installed. In addition, we rebuild the internal bearings and reduce the tolerances to eliminate the 'marbles in a tin can' noises. The kit also includes a new vanos gasket and crush washers. Now with clear coated solenoids to prevent surface oxidation.

We have created a specialized installation document for the Dual Vanos kit which can be downloaded from the menu at the left.
The Dual Vanos installtion does not require any special cam timing tools since the cam timing is not affected when removing/installing the Vanos. We do however rent the tool kit for those that may need to reset their timing or are installing cams, etc. Contact us for more information.
The core charge allows us to send you a rebuilt vanos at a much lower price than a new unit would cost from the dealer. By sending out a complete, ready to install vanos the customer has the ability to replace their vanos as quickly as possible and then return their old vanos for the core refund. This helps to keep your downtime to a minimum so you can get back on the road without waiting for parts.

The Dual Vanos core charge is $150.
We ask that you return your old vanos unit to us as quickly as possible. Once we receive your complete core we will immediately refund the full core charge amount back to your Paypal or Credit Card account.
