Too many miles for JB4?

My car has about 82,000 miles and I was thinking of adding the JB4 mod, but I was curious if with that many miles if I would be asking for more rapid wear and tear on the motor? Any one have any ideas or experience? I dont plan on tracking the car, just want some more oomph.

I'd get the heads checked for carbon buildup, check on the wastegates, turbos, spark plugs and if all good, I wouldn't se a problem. AS for wear/tear, the light that burns twice as bright burns half as long ...

Get the walnut blast, change your plugs, put in the JB4, and change your oil. Wazingggooo!!!! You should be good to go. Remember, you can turn this thing on and off from the steering wheel even as you are driving! I drive with it off most of the time until I feel "edgy", then I turn it on, let the oil warm up, and GRRRRROWWWWLLL I'm gone!!!

If you plan to alternate BMWs original specs on your engine, it will no doubt increase the wear.

I am looking to probably go with Burger's oil catch can as well, in theory a lot of the carbon buildup should burn itself off if no more sludge is getting in there, but who knows.

Its far from catching 100% but its a great starting off point.

Im about to be rounding 100K and was asking myself the same question OP. I did some homework and read that one of the biggest factors of FI and wear on these engine, is dependent on the compression. If engine compression is on target and the car isn't leaking, you should have a safe and pleasent experience. If you plan on increasing PSI on the turbos, you may want a compression test done first.

If the car has any defects the JB4 will bring them to light. That being said most of the developer cars have a lot of mileage on them & get used a lot harder than customer cars.
