Question Questions about blowing engine.... - 09-20-2018, 05:45 PM

Hi, I have a bmw 340i and i was planning to install a JB4 Tuner and a BMS Billet Intake and also doing a muffler delete. Will any of those harm my engine or blow the engine up. My friend has the same car and those same modifications and his engine blew. He said something about too much boost. Could someone tell me please if this would blow my engine cause i was really looking foward to doing those modifications. Thank You!

The muffler delete will probably have a higher chance of blowing your engine

Engine Blew? What exactly got damaged? What was he doing when the engine blew? What Map/Fuel?
