Next Mods on 435? I NEED SPEED!

Need recommendations for next performance upgrades. Recently did AA tune, VRSF downpipe, AA CP & FMIC. I still have a third party warranty so don't want to get TOO carried away. But i'm open for recommendations. Want to keep it on 93 octane.

On the Extreme Powerhouse website it showed 435's with 525+ hp. Is that alright long term for the engine if I'm using it as a daily driver? I drive moderately 50% of the time

you can still run AA tune but custom tune is recommended.. as for the ps2 it used oem turbo manifold with oem turbo with a bigger compressor wheel.

Iím really interested in the ps2 but really wanna know how the transmission would hold up. I have a 15í 435i and I donít drive aggressively 24/7 All I see for answers are very old posts and I honestly want to know if my automatic can handle that sort of torque gain for atleast the remainder of the time I own it with regular maintenance. I plan on keeping the car for atleast another 3-4 years.

Is the AA "tune" a piggyback device or a flash tune?

These transmissions are pretty beefy since these cars come with a good amount of torque already. 500/500 HP/TQ is a good figure before you really start abusing them. Keep in mind, the amount of abuse (racing, launching, ETC) will factor in.

For your typical person who commutes 90+% it's fine.

Tranny should hold without issue unless you go crazy with the boost / Meth / E85 on the new turbos.
