....I set off the alarm on my parents van today on the way out. I was barely even revving. I guess since both of us backed in, the sensor must be on the pass side, and since my exhaust is on the drivers it set it off.

from work. My sore throat is trying to sneak up on me again. I'm just taking like 3k mg of vitamin c, and gargled in salt water again. I hope I can keep it at bay this time.

Yeah, it is throwing me off a little, I heard my pulleys a while ago and have been meaning to change them all out.... but this is like a different sound.... almost like a torn plastic back stuck in the intake.... it weird...

ok, I will try to take a video later if I can. Hard to do alone because it only makes the sound when accelarating....
do you have an iphone? i can do an audio clip and send it to you.

I guess it would make sense if that was it.... it the boot is cracked, once it heats up it closes....

It might get more pliable, but I doubt a torn boot will close up.

I told Albee when he asked me at the last meet if I'd do anything to the M3 engine:
"Moar power is awesome but it's not like 333 is a weak number. I think I can live with that for awhile..."

Maybe I'll get an E92 M3 at some point...
