Although, V1 has been around a year or so (?) and I haven't read any cases of blown motors - I think one of the member here (SAN?) has it installed. V2 is certainly more extreme and seems to be tripping more codes. Time will tell.
it was tripping codes because of bad harnesses.

Agree with Wagner that anything beyond 350whp for a dd is pointless. How much did you make with the lude Ryan?
huh???? WTF are you talking about.. why not just take the bus then or walk...

I'm making over 450hp BTW and it's my daily driver and if you don't on it too hard, 28 mpg.

I'll fully admit I don't have one, or have a friend with one. Just from most FI's I've seen on the track in the last 15 years...anyone pushing 100whp over stock was risking blowing the motor. Of course the Intercooler helps, but not as much as a upgraded internals. I'm surprised yours is lasting so long. What are the boost levels (dd vs what it could be).

That's a misconception. Most of the turbo motors now are built pretty damn strong. Subaru and Evo motors along with audi 1.8t and 2.7T blocks are bulletproof. Tune it correctly, get enough spark and fuel and you are completely fine. It's those who slap kits together and don't a/f that will blow stuff up. The 335i motors are good for up to 600-700hp easily. It's the tranny and drive train that you have to worry about. I did a blackstone report both after V1 and V2 and check my plugs and my motor is burning very clean and burns no oil. I would say even at 500hp at the crank, this motor is not stressed as show by the blackstone report.

As I said, I've seen these FI's at the track so almost ALL are after market setups. I did watch many GT-S Eclipses blow rods right through their block. Haven't seen any FI factory models lately, like you mentioned. Curious what the clutch is rated to on the 335 I'd look to that as the first weak spot for getting the power down, followed by the trans as you mentioned. Are you running a manual?

Nothing going to go bang in a 335i with 400hp, remember ppl, its not a jap engine like a honda or nissan.

I have 100 octane at a local gas station here.. don't run it too often since it would destroy the seals.
