BMW M5 and M8 - Coolant Catch Pan (CCP) Installation

BMW M5 and M8 - Coolant Catch Pan (CCP) Installation

The BMW M5 F90 and M8 have a very bad habit - they damage and corrode their fuel injectors with coolant.

The coolant tanks in F90 M5 / F9X M8 platforms often leak due to a design flaw. Two main reasons contribute to this:

    - The plastic tank is positioned above the engine's hottest part, the catalytic converters.

    - Over time, the plastic becomes brittle from exposure to both coolant and extreme heat.

 - The coolant from the tank flows directly into the cylinder head, damaging the injectors and other ignition parts

- Coolant turns the plastic body of the injector into a sponge, and then destroys the copper conductor.

And then the magic of phased direct injection begins to disappear - the car runs poorly, has rough idle, stalls and shows drivetrain malfunction over time.
