BM3 STAGE 2h

I will reach out to pure and bm3

Is it possible to run 2H with stage 2 turbo on stock tune for any length of time.

I took my DP off and replaced it with oem cat..
I am going to sell my car I did oem flash and relock dme now when you accelerate it gives a drive train malfunction.. ( i assume due to overboost)

what real damage would happen? if any ... turn the burbles off
and let it run?

Take off the stage 2 turbo and part it out. If you end up doing that Iíll buy it.

If you want to sell it with the stock cat and mods as is, I would turn off burbles, flash Stage 2H with cold start OEM and Catalyst monitors OEM. It will pass emissions and run fine. I had a PS2 with the stock catalyst fitted for some time. Flashing it to stock with a PS2 will result in an unhappy buyer, a smart buyer would floor it and get on the car to make sure it ran good before a purchase. :-D A PS2 with Stage 2H sells itself and will pass emissions at least in NC.

I am really curious to see what the dealer says given you are tuned with turbo etc. I assume they would do some kind of inspection and check software. Update us what happens

as long as he is not trading it into a BMW dealership he should be okay. probly trading into a carmax/ford/chevy/vw dealership and I don't think they would have the software specific for checking tunes, just obd2 scan tool and whatever point mechanical inspection (and ps2 being built from oem turbo housing/turbofold visually should pass).

Correct they already looked at it did the value. Before all this it is. Ford. Dealership I am going to a raptor


They needed to put the truck through inspection and told me they had to put the oem exhaust on it so i got more in trade and was able to take the meistercraft.exhaust exhaust and dp off. So someone will get a hell of a deal. As it will be fbo but no dp. And has phre stG 2. Sadly no one wants to buy my car and get me out of this loan. So trade in was only way
