eh...I don't know. Could be kinda rough on things like crankshaft bearings too. Be better to diagnose it and get it running right. There's a lot of experience and knowledge on this forum.

What has been checked so far?

Most likely your Fuel pressure regulator failed and your pressure is to high causing the DME to overload I would look into testing the fuel pressure first, then probobly replace the FPR. it should be at 2 bar or 29 psi at idle and 2.5 bar or 37 psi with the fuel pump jumpered out.
