lol, what a way to bring an Old thread back to life.....

I F/I'd my E46 M3 With a SC when she had 77k....@ 103k she went HPF stage 2.....@ 111k she got the new 6766, open-dump, HPF Fuel pump, new meth pump, HPF oil cooler....

FAIRLY YOUNG @ 8K ON the HPF KIT but my stock motor has 118k and she still feels strong as if she had 45k ;-)

jesse, kenton, lawrence, i mean now we have at least 45% of HPF stage 1-3 who have thousands of miles on these kits

Rico your motor is still perfect with perfect compression last i checked. I think i only put 25-30k miles on my stock block then got the built motor.

Unlike everyone else on the fourms I use the search bar before making a new thread lol...

I'm just looking for feed back with owners that have a hpf 2 on a stock block, how things are holding up and what's the most miles on a stock block with a hpf stage 2 turbo kit and how it runs with high mileage

Uou put a much higher service demand on the engine thus decrease its longevity whenever you bolt FI to your engine. For street driving, I don't see an issue.

Kudos to you for searching!

honestly the majority of people who have purchased stage 1 or 2 over the years i have seen them only up the ante and go stage 2.5 or 3 or now you have the option of forming you own kit in a way. HPF offers a ton of options now that will cater to your driving needs. Those who have had issues early on with kits on motors that were not built and then blown hpf helped to fix the issue whether it be free transport and only parts or completely free just pay for transport if you dig a little deeper within the hpf community there have been more than a handfull of engine failures many of which hpf corrected for them. thats just my opinion and general view over hpf reliability. and no i have never owned or used an hpf kit nor am i an hpf fan boy. Im a fan of their work for sure though good luck to you

With OVER 100 HPF turbo M3s on the road (many of which are tracked and drag raced) we've had "very few" failures in the last several years. In fact, the car that's been tracked the most and ran the hardest is an HPF Stage 1 widebody M3 (owned by Oscar/Ivo). This car has the HPF Stage 1 turbo kit installed on 11/14/2008 and is still kicking butt year after year, session after session with the same engine that it begin with. Below is one of his first track sessions at MFest in April 2009. Many of the current HPF M3 turbo owners track their car, drag race their car and street race their cars. These cars are run extremely hard. In comparison, if we take a look at the average motor lifespan of a "bone stock" E46 m3 motor that's been run at the track, drag raced and street raced and compare the failure rates, they may be quite comparable.

I believe Oscar sold his car to another shop, and that shop used the car to win some tuner challenge a few weeks ago. Wish I could locate the video..

The HPF kit is by far and away the most flexible system out there.

Ivo - the driver/shop that originally drove and maintained Oscar's car in the video now owns it but Ivo is no longer driving. They have a new driver now. They are still running the HPF turbo kit and still the same engine.
