    VTT N54 Crank bolt captures available now!

    Want a little extra security your N54 crank bolt wont back out leaving you with 24 bent valves? Here is an easy, and cost effective way to do that. The VTT N54 crank bolt capture. It slips over the head of the crank bolt, fully encapsulates it, and locks it to the crank hub, meaning it cannot back out no matter what.

    The VTT-CBC is 100% Billet Aircraft Grade Aluminum, Anodized black to protect it from the elements, and give it a stealth look.

    While this is not a full fix for all crank hub spinning issues, we have found most of our issues have stemmed from the bolt itself backing out, and this is a great way to keep that from happening. Extremely light weight at only 1.3 Oz's it adds virtually no weight to the crank which is important for balance, and vibration.

    These are in stock, and on the VTT Website for immediate sale. Price is $99 for hub capture, and all 12.9 hardware needed for install. We suggest using blue loc-tite on your crank hub bolts.

    It's not as hot of a topic in the N54 world but it's a big deal in the S55 world and I'm guessing Tony applied his solution there to the N54 as it was a logical decision.

    Any difference in these capture between the two Tony?

    Would take a quick search on google or N54 to see that is not the case. There is many reported cases of the N54 bolts backing out. One guy does a full DIY here, and made the first capture. I got his permission before making these. Not a lot of people realize its reasonably common, most people also do not realize the bolt backing out is usually the issue, not the hub spinning. The bolt backs out, and the result is a spun hub.

    Captures are exactly same concept, but took two completely different designs. S55 had to be completely different height, inner Diameter for bolt head, 8 bolts instead of 6, etc, etc. Quite a bit of work went into making these.

    I did ask about this a while back and the consensus was the crank hub issues vtt was having, is self-inflicted, never bothered with it as I'm not at the power level for this to actually happen to me nor does it seem to be a common issue for the n54, nonetheless not here to bash or discredit your work just passing along the information I have

    I did not take it as a bash, just not a very well known issue if you do not search for it, but once you do, you will find a ton of cases. Most people do not know what causes it.

    I remember some N54s having issues of it backing out days after doing the walnut blast . They used the crank bolt to turn the engine instead of a gun trigger to the starter solenoid, or rocking the vehicle. It is not common but does happen.

    I used the crankbolt to turn but the trick is to do it clockwise so you wont loosen the bolt.

    If the bolt is still tightened to it factory specs, which is 75 ft lbs then a full 360 degrees of stretch, you could turn it counter clockwise for a week, and never loosen it with just engine resistance. If the bolts loosens from that, it was loose to begin with.

    It would look exactly like the rendering you see. Here is an S55 prototype installed. This was actually installed at the local dealership, by dealer techs under warranty. We have a close relationship with them, and they wanted to try on on a customers car with a spun hub...

    Any reason you guys chose to use bullet head allen bolts instead of the factory style bolts? Just aesthetics?

    Sourcing those bolts in the correct length is a pain in the ass, as this adds a .250" of spacer, you want to add at least that much in bolt thread length. 12.9 Allens are as strong as anything you can get. The button heads also have more surface area than the factory bolts. We most likely will be shipping all the captures with slightly different bolts. I have those shown on my car, and the dealership used those on the S55, but those are 5mm hex. I wanted to go with full 6mm hex for more engagement when TQ'ing. So we got 12.9 6mm hex bolts in the correct length with small OD Stainless washers with more surface area than the stock bolts for better load equalization.

Show us another built motor putting down any power, or fast times. I will wait, welcome to the hater club my friend. Bye bye


    Wait before I ban hammer you, maybe I read that wrong, are you saying the competition is all claims, and no data, or that our motor is? Either way, you seem pretty negative my friend
    I was not remotely referring to you... I was referring to the companies that offer built engines without any data, your engine seems to be the only one doing work. So can you shed some light on the shop?
