Bavarian Rennsport is your one stop shop for your Mercedes Benz engine rebuild and engine repair needs. Call today to start your engine project. If you aren’t local, you can ship your car to us.
Bavarian Rennsport maintains and repairs a stock of high-quality Mercedes Benz core engines. The remanufactured engines that we provide have been test run in the vehicle before dismantling. Once the engines are removed from the vehicle we perform a compression and leak down test to confirm the engine is up to OEM factory specifications. After passing the specifications test they are sealed up with cap-plugs, jet washed, dried, and sealed in plastic and stamped with our crest of approval. All rebuilt engines are manufactured using only factory OEM replacement parts or better.

Why do I need a new engine?
Some people may ask why do I need a new engine and is it even worth the money?
The reason that a new engine would be needed in your vehicle is that a component failed and was ignored causing the engine to reach an inoperable state or the worst case scenario is a catastrophic failure. Most engines tend to reach catastrophic failures when the factory service and maintenance schedule has been ignored, causing the vehicles internal components to suffer from a cooling system failure or oil starvation. When these engine components fail it will result in a vehicle that will require a new or remanufactured engine. The most common causes of engine failure come from either a broken water pump/thermostat or the oil pump is damaged and starved from low oil levels. When any of these common issues occur, different parts of the engine will become damaged and possibly inoperable. When replacing an engine, it’s important that you choose the right replacement option. Bavarian Rennsport understands that different customers will have different needs and budgets, as well as other constraints (warranty coverage, for instance).
Do I need a rebuilt engine or a new crate engine?
When the worst case scenario happens to your form of transportation you have 3 options that you can choose from whether it be rebuilt motor, Crate engine or selling the car as is. This decision lies in your current circumstances and your future life expectancy for the vehicle. Things like time, reliability, and budget can play major parts in your decision so we are here to provide you with the best possible service and get you back on the road with a smart but affordable option for your situation. You might find that rebuilding the blown engine is the right path to take, but for customers pressed for time, that won’t be the case as sourcing all the parts and making sure the engine is stripped.
Rebuilt or Remanufactured Engine?
The main advantages of rebuilding an engine are the connectivity and compatibility with the existing ECU and electrical system. The ECU is programmed to communicate with the engine that was originally installed in the vehicle. A rebuilt engine involves removing the engine from the vehicle and completely disassembling to be cleaned, and inspected. This process allows the technician to replace all damaged parts with new or refurbished parts. All replacement parts will consist of new gaskets, seals, and lubricants are used in the assembly of the rebuilt engine that will meet Mercedes Benz OEM standards. The most common components to be replaced include bearings, gaskets, seals, timing belt or chain, valve springs, and the oil pump. Major parts are replaced only if they are needed, and often include camshafts, crankshafts, and pistons. In the most severe cases, we will have to machine parts that have been warped.
A Mercedes Benz crate engine in our perspective would be a brand new engine coming straight from the dealership. Some companies classify a crate engine as a rebuilt engine with new internals but old external parts which we don’t believe in. Crate engines tend to be the more expensive option versus a remanufactured engine, but they’re guaranteed to be a brand new engine that is in OEM condition and has a factory warranty. A crate engine will have the same lifespan as the engine in a car that’s just rolling off the assembly line. Therefore a crate engine will be the best long-term solution for customers who plan to keep their car for as long as possible.
