I used to have a 71 Nova that was pretty done up and at the same time my daily driver was a 85 Nova that was a POS. I think the 85' Nova was really a rebadged Carola. People called it the "Mini Nova". You need a nickname for the Mini-Turbo.

Don't get rid of it man. There's always something to change on there to give it that new car feel.. Like adding a turbo..

Honestly if they end up coming out with a stage 2 for this I'd totally keep it and spring for that. There is alot you can mod on this car and with every mod I'm loving it more and more.

Problem is its a 325i auto, so considering selling now and buying a 330i manual.

I don't want to part with the car though

Whats the difference between stage 1 and 2 besides the very nice power increase, wasn't it just head gasket, head studs and upping the boost to 13 psi?

Is your car an M54 or an M56. If its M56 you might still need to give up.

M56. Just read a bit about it before you start saying about giving up. But yeah I see where your coming from

And Active Autowerkes supercharger would work on my vehicle just fine so I don't see why I would have to give up?
