Default 2013 A5 2.0TFSI Stasis or APR effects

Hi everyone. I am interested in long term effects of Stasis or APR stage 1 ECU reflash. If I relfash 2013 A5 (no parts changed from stock), just ecu reflash, will it cause strain and long term degradation of engine/boost life? I was considering to get one, since it looks like it substantially increases engine power, but I am concerned with long term effects. Even if i get stasis with warranty to 50K miles, I dont want to be stuck with failing engine and lots of bills once warranty goes out.

Any recommendation or feedback is hugely appreciated.

Some historical data...

My 99.5 A4 had an APR tune for several years before the ECU itself crapped out. The engine was still running strong when I sold it last month.

You will probably want to upgrade your diverter valve to handle the extra boost though.
