I've had the Active downpipes on the shop's 335 and the G82 M4. No CEL with either one

Sorry for the thread drift but I just ordered bm3 tonight (thanks Mike@x-ph.com)

Am I correct in thinking that messing with burbles when I flash stage 1 won't be great for my oem DP?

Yes, and you really can't hear the burbles on a stock setup much anyhow

Correct, I recommend upgrading the downpipe if you wish to increase the burble sound

Is it true I shouldn’t leave e30 in the tank for more than 3 days? At this point in my research that is my only blocker.

I have asked this question to the user named kern417 and he actually ran an ethanol blend beyond e30 and did not drive the car for a month and had no issues. E30-E50 really isn't a huge ethanol blend but once you go beyond that, however, the properties of gasoline will lose its potency.

Where did you hear that? Lmao. Ethanol isn't going to absorb that much moisture that quickly, especially on an E30-35 blend.

Yes ethanol can absorb moisture from the atmosphere causing it to lose potency, you'll be fine though. I highly doubt you'll let the car sit for Months on end without driving it. Correct me if I'm wrong

I would say 2 days of no driving max, but the issue is most of my drives are 30 miles max, and average like 2 miles. I work from home so no commute, so I find myself re-filling every 2 weeks.
