Whatsup guys, figured I would post up the maintenance and mods I'm doing to my 2010 335d I picked up this fall.
Had been casually searching for a clean unmodified 335d with low miles for a few years and this popped up locally. A 1 owner with good service records and 57k miles. Drove it around for the rest of the year and started ordering up all the basic maintenance parts and a few mods for reliability and some extra performance.

Quickly realized that trying to do everything with the engine in the car was going to be a nightmare. So already have the table that I built for my 335i engine removal ready to go and out it came.

Is the turbo outlet replacement the infamous "red boost pipe"? That's about the only common failure point I've heard about on these engines.

I believe so, I got the new turner motorsports turbo outlet to replace the factory one.
