Only time harm will be done is if on a heavily modified FI application where you do several runs and shut the car off immediately. Turbo damage could be a probable consequence.
I dont think turbo damage would happen unless the oil sits in it afterwards
Top mount turbos never need turbo timers imo. Ill run engines on my dyno for 20 minutes with glowing exhuast and then just have to shut it down cuz something springs a leak etc. And ive never had a problem. But these engines have huge garrets and maybe they are diff.

My Ride: 2006 BMW M3
Got my first kill yesterday haha. I picked up a friend who hasn't ridden in my car yet and was doing a couple of pulls. A Dodge Caliber SRT (lame I know) passes an intersection while I was sitting at a light to go his direction, and I hear his blow off valve. Anyways, I catch up behind him and he's trying to mess with a Vette which wouldn't race him. So I pull up next to him and give him the friendly "nice car" nod, next thing I know he's honking three times and off we go. Needless to say I pulled a couple car lengths and had to let off because a car was ahead of me. Pretty much a second to third gear pull. Meanwhile, my friend is laughing like a school girl in the passenger seat because that was his first time riding in my car and it happened to be a quick friendly run haha.

I know it wasn't a high powered car like a Vette, GTR, etc., but it was my first run since I got the car. We pulled in a lot and spoke a couple minutes. His caliber pushes 425whp on pump and like 5xx something on race gas. He also has a neon SRT pushing 6xx whp on race gas. We plan on setting one up for that run.

Sorry just wanted to share.

Moarr updates kids: I bought a used HPF titanium exhaust on m3forum and it arrived Monday. I finally got a chance to open up the package like it was Xmas morning. I must say this thing looks minty since it only has 1500 miles on it. The welds on it are spectacular. Not to mention how light it is. I believe it weighs 6.3lbs.

I currently have the SS Race exhaust and felt like it wasn't loud enough, and that is why I made the jump on this. From what I've read and talked to Kirk@HPF, this exhaust is LOUD!!! I hope it's not too obnoxious. I'll find out soon.. Hopefully I'll get to install it here in the next week or so.

Very sexy exhaust. but I cant help but think of one particular member here that came to HATE his loud exhaust real fast. It got old fast. Ear plugs ALL the time.
I think the best way it a nice muffler with an exhaust cut out option....either on demand or actuated by pressure.
Its a little more weight, but you get ANYTHING you want...when you want it.
Long trip quiet or Hell raising loud!
The good thing is that you can always change what you have.
Let us all know how you like it...after three months.

This is a different exhaust completely...probably doesn't drone like a POS.
And it sounds amazing around town...just long drives or anytime the windows are closed it sucks.

My OEM exhaust is in my hands again...and I will have a cutout.

AH. And he doesnt have as much HP either. Maybe he will be OK. then. I heard the idle video...not horrible. Its so hard to tell from videos. Impossible to tell anything about drone, but ilde was pretty nice.

Yes. Muffler plus cut out just makes so much sense. Except my exit is just a few feet in back of the front seats. I know that is not going to work. For me anyways, the exit must be ALL the way in the back. I cant tell you how annoying a mid car cut out exit is. "Want to never use it" bad.
It can be changed like anything else.

Congrats on finally getting your exhaust reconciled. I felt for you having to wear ear plugs all the time. Having a good muffler will make driving a much more enjoyable experience.

You mean lack of exhuast? Youll love the tone now. I have straight pipes with factory mids. Dave the exhuast that is to loud is the 4 inch straight pipes.

Try a rogue diablo TE instead, I think that'd sound great before and after cut out

Hey Noel, Exhaust sounds great!

As CW commented Noel's exhaust is a little different so the drone may not be as bad. Having said that I don't really mind loud exhaust. I 've had the experience of riding shotgun in an HPF car with a 4 inch straight pipe, and to be honest with you... I kinda liked it

PS
Whats a VIJEO?

Haha.. Vijeo is obviously video. Just inside joke with Filipinos bc of their FOB accent.

Drone isn't bad at all. Although if I drove from HPF again to the east coast, it might be annoying but since I drive it like a weekend car it's awesome!!!

I like waking up the dead at night haha. Very loud but not obnoxious. Glad there isn't rasp! Paired up with SS resonated x-pipe is perfect.

Updates: 2 weeks after installing Hpf's ti exhaust I started over boosting to 15-17 lbs on pump gas. I've been contacting Chris K (Bat line) and he's been kind enough to help thru the process of diagnosing the problem

I began with the map sensor and tested it with a voltage meter and was putting out 4.95 volts on ground and power wires. It put 1.6 volts for the sensor and ground wire which correlated withthe AEM chart.

Monday night, Chris K had me check the waste gate lines. 1 line was intact but the other line was somewhat messed up. The fitting between the solenoid line and wastegate line was broken but was still holding the lines together. I went to advanced auto to get vacuum fittings and found one that connected perfectly. I even zipped tied them to make sure it was secure. No restrictions to the lines. I blew air through the lines to make sure it was going through.

I also checked both boost solenoids while I was in there, and both worked properly. Clicking noise was produced with the 9v battery. I was also able to blow through the nipple. So no issues there. I put everything back together correctly and double checked my work for line orientation.

Went for a test drive and was still over boosting. I noticed my open dump wasn't opening as well. It wasn't loud like it should be. I even tried methanol to see what it would do. It went to almost 19 lbs hen hit boost cut.

So where to go from here? Is it the wastegate itself or the open dump? I've read on the forums and people said they got new tunes with exhaust changes but my symptoms have lead me to the wastegate or dump.

Thoughts anyone? Any advice would be great!!

I seem to recall an issue a few years ago with the wastegate flex tube. I know it's a PITA to pull off, but if you haven't already check this, it may be on HPF's list of things to look at.

The offending part had a braided inner section that literally disintegrated causing an obstruction in the waste gate flow.

In the follow-up work done by HPF, they mentioned replacing this part with a different flex tube in all kits. You should have the new part on your car...

Thanks for the suggestion. The Tial wg is brand new when my car was put together in August but you never know when things can be faulty.
