No, your HPFP will crash and you'll misfire.

Buy a PI kit or pay double for HPFP overdrive via VTT or Helix.

What about the manifold design would prevent such a sandwich plate? Awkward fuel lines/fitment of fuel rail/injectors?

If you go single, your low-end torque will be less than twins so it should be easier on your clutch (and tires!). With mmp twins and full e85 PI, I haven't yet had an issue with my dmfw and 335is...

Not normal. Did you change your tune as well? Could be any number of things alignment, poor tire condition, bad spark, etc, etc, etc.

My 335is is holding up on MMP's and full e85 north of 600wtq. If you're not on a budget then the SMFW and Spec3+ is the correct solution.

Agree with others, sell the COBB.

5" fmic is cake. The other sizes which require trimming are definitely do-able if you have a dremel/sawzall but take half a day. Worth the time and money though...

I had to replace my rear main seal at around 90k for the same oil leak but mine wasn't in that bad of condition. I put mine off until I needed a new clutch as the leak was very minor.
