I wish they said what his stock exhaust was because it was certainly aftermarket. And how about what they did with the exhaust. Straigh pipes or did they go off the sides like in the video game. Granted their budget was 17k but they could have done alot more instead of putting vinyl all over the frickin place. Headers? Race clutch? Sways? GAUGES?!?!? I couldn't believe that car had no gauges considering it now is blown and running an AEM system.
Why would it run an AEM ECU management system if it has the AA Supercharger kit?

They decided to run the AEM ECU because they got rid of the E46 Intake Manifold, and put in one from the E36 ///M car. They did this so they could get rid of the drive-by-wire from the E46, in lieu of a standard throttle cable. This also allows them to use a wider throttle body than is possible with the E46...

Pretty cool show. I didn't care for the head guy that much, but it was neat to watch.

The exhaust on it looked a lot like the UUC TSE3. I love how the host kept calling it a 330i even though it was a 2 door

Not the TSE3. Tips were way too thin and the welding way too sloppy. Kind of looked like a shop-made exhaust with dual individual cans on the end.

I think the owner even called it an 330i when he was handing the keys to her.

I wonder if a computer swap is necessary if you're going with the E36 manifold swap.

The only cool part of that show was seeing Manu and Ryan from DPE. That's about it. All those people are tools. Especially that head guy and the useless chick.

Luis, I thought the same thing when they brought in that group of guys to do the bodywork. I was like, "they look like some mexican gang".

Cool mods. Crappy show. There's no way they did all that with a $18K budget (or whateve it was). Monster Garage meets Revenge of the Nerds.
