It holds the power fine. But I wouldn't replace the stock with stock once it wears out, I wouldn't do so stock either though.

If it needed it I would have done it.

What are you worried about long term? The engine? Or something about the kit itself?

I can tell you the engine can handle these power levels very easily, other kits have been making this power for 5 years or more.

I would say I am very non bias, and you could probably tell if you looked over my posts about the kit. I point out the parts of it that were poorly done (most of which was fixed since) and the issues I've had. But I do have a BMW shop so I'm somewhat biased in that id love for people I help to buy things through us. (but that small bias has nothing to do with my passionate hate for ebay headers, that has to do with having to install and deal with them.)

Where in Orlando are you? I used to live there and graduated from UCF. I get back there every few months to see old friends and would love to swing by and check out the shop if thats cool with you. I lived on the east side by UCF and thats where I hang out mostly. intersection of 408 & 417.

Oh and from w/e speed redline in fourth is I was slamming on the brakes, the stoptechs Fing SHINE here.
What is the tweak that you did on the brake booster and intake manifold that corrected your boost issue ?
