so my build is still intact with everything. ati damper , headers, 264 cams, dinan long tube. cams add a very nice growl to the exhaust tone and power gain is noticeable up top very much..

havent done mods lately but im on the road to purchasing a lsd and clutch setup for my car so that down the line im ready for boost. prob going to go lsd first since rob has a few things to say about it.

Wouldn't it be cheaper to sell the 325I and get a manual zhp and do additional mods on it. The engine, tranny, seats and steering wheels should easily make up for the difference in a used 325i vs zhp, unless of course you have some sick deals on used parts.
