Seems like you spent a bit too much for that gain.

I really hope you're just trolling.

Shark Injector (Conforti) was the first mod I did to the car around 5 years ago. Definitely didn't make 19whp

No, not $700, more like $4000+ for the next 20whp or so. Just couldn't stomach it. If you can think of another way to hit 260+rwhp, though, I'd love to follow your thread. It's going to take quite a bit more than a Shark Injector, though

Sorry. Didn't mean for it to come out that way. Still love my e46. Just had to make some changes. Also hoping to have another kid on the way in a couple years. 4 doors are easier.

Edit: I read that as fatalistic

Nope, just said 4 doors and gave one other description of the engine. Whatever it is, I'm excited to see what you do next.

talking about hp when you have k&n listed in your sig

Steven. If you have no tune on your car, it will definitely do more for you. Not only that, but the Schricks make power all the way to redline. If you're only revving to 6500 you're missing some power. I'd put money down that a Shark would make power for you.

lol, like it makes any less HP than any other air filter out there.

I find myself correcting your mis-information once again: the K&N kit has a heat shield isolating it from the engine bay and won't heat soak any more than any other intake.

Sorry to dirty up your thread aggie, it really was just a joke, but then he has to go post some nonsense again.
