v12 ftw and ftl in this case.
Replace every hose, obviously. That's not a big deal.
The rest depends on how healthy the motor is. Will probably need a new gas tank, too.

maybe the best bet is getting a junkyard car or dirt cheap then getting a used engine to dump in it. but $500 is an extremely tight budget.

Yeah, that's what I mean by health of the motor.

I've seen a build thread. It fits, but I don't know if it can be done within budget.

yea. well didn't punch the guy through the window. i punched the window and broke it first, then hit the guy. i don't think it's even possible to punch anyone throw a window.

honestly, i was just going to hit the window and tell the guy to get out of the car to beat his ass. but then it broke i blame the adrenaline lol

yea it should sound nice. i was thinking eisenmann sport with no resonators for my setup. but race sounds good too. haven't heard any car with eisenmann race and no resonators except for m3's

here's a clip for an 330 with eisenmann sport and no resonators. i think he has headers too since it says no cats, but not sure
