Performance mods? B58 mods fit?

I know a couple companies have picked of M340i test cars to develop new products for our cars.

I'm sure with some software editing BootMod and JB4 will work with the M340i, but what about hardware?

At least from my experience with an N55, a downpipe provided great power and subsequently a charge pipe was a good idea.

Has anyone heard anything?

I reached out to both Tiago at VRSF and Ando at Burger Tuning and here's what I got back:

VRSF - the previous gen downpipe does not fit, but they plan on developing one for the new car soon. As goj stated above, there is no need for an upgraded charge pipe on B58 like there was on the N55 motor.

BMS - JB4 is compatible.

Has anyone been able to find a downpipe for the M340i? May wait for Tiago@VRSF to develop one as their products were excellent for me (DP and CP) and a great value.

Is it possible that the turbo is larger on M340 than other models BMW with B58?
