CLA45 AMG PiggyBack Reliability

Hi All,

I am installing the following piggyback and other mods. Does anyone have reliability data once piggyback and other mods are installed? Should I expect to be able to continue using the car as a daily driver? I have read some horror stories about engine reliability, however the car has been great so far (close to 30k miles). Part of me feels like I am pouring gas on a fire, the other half cannot wait to try this stuff out.

Tricolore Performance Piggyback Unit
Forge Motorsports Blow Off Valve
Pipercross 4-inch Air Intake System

Any thoughts or advice welcome. Are there any other mods I could add to add to reliability?

Jake

also, down pipe is a must.
blow off valve is for sound only.
that air intake looks like tricolore sells and i saw photos of it with wends getting undone so dirt can get in.
i use ams one made out one piece of aluminium, never problem.

With a tune and intake alone, you donít need the blow off valve. The spool and intake alone is plenty sweet music...
