How much HP does a downpipe add BMW?
Upgraded Downpipe + Intake + Tune = Best Performance Benefit With zero other mods, a B58 with an upgraded downpipe will add approx. 10-15whp. This is simply from better turbo spool and more efficient turbo performance. However, the gains become amplified on cars that have other mods.

As long as your tune is on point and you are not doing anything stupid, 99% of the time, you are using the N54 as a low-compression NA engine, which should last 300, 400 or even 500K. From everything I have read, there are no internal weak spots with these engines, just weak peripherals.
How much HP does JB4 Map 2 add?
I’ve seen people do stage 2 (JB4 MAP2) dynos with a DP, IC, and chargepipe and they’re getting 60HP over stock. From what I understand, JB4 is just a boost controller. Stock boost is around 18PSI and MAP2 hits around 23PSI. Is +5PSI in boost really all it takes to add ~60HP?
What is the difference between Catted and Catless downpipe?
Catted means that it comes with a high-flow catalytic converter. Catless downpipes come without one. Catalytic converters clean exhaust gases as they pass through a catalyst. This deals with the smell from the raw exhaust fumes.
