Love the look of that intake Charlie, one of the best out there and from what I've heard, the best sounding too.

Now don't be mad at me, but I might have to report you to Mango's ARMY due to the massive amount of dust and dirt in the rest of your engine bay! Give that engine bay a good cleaning and it will make the Gruppe M sparkle in there.

How were the RPM's on the highway coming back from Jersey? Also, I'd skip the lo-jack, I had it installed in my car when I bought it, and thought it was a "for the life of the car" thing. HA, far from it. You're good for like 5-6 years then they may you come into LoJack for a special inspection so they can check the battery on the transponder box, if it is out, or needs replacing I think you front the cost, and you have to pay like $99 for the special "inspection" too. I've been just about everywhere in my car and have never seen the lojack box, so who knows where it is, but I find it ridiculous that the owner of the car cannot know about the location of the box so it can be removed and brought in for a new battery. Dummys.

This is all you need to find out what your RPMs will be at certain speeds: http://www.bokchoys.com/differential...calculator.htm

So my 323 has 4.23 2.52 1.66 1.22 1.00 - 4.04 3.07 6500

Betsy is pretty sporty. I can't imagine a ZHP with a 3.46 LSD. I probably shouldn't ever drive one. :o

Interesting page here with info about differential swaps.

http://www.bokchoys.com/differential/faq.htm

...and the differential ratios for all the e46 versions
