Thanks. Now that I have a backup I can do some work on the e46 that I've needed to do. I have a pesky vac leak and I need to remove the IM to find it. Hoping I can get started on that soon. I actually have a pretty good list of things to fix:

Vacuum Leak on IM
Replace SAP mounts
Replace A, B, C pillars
Fix Sunroof
Fix passenger's door lock

I also have some fun things planned for this summer for the old girl. She has to last me another 4 years or so. I'm not giving up on her.

I got the pads changed a couple weeks ago, that was nice. Thanks BimmerBrakes!

so have you tried some pulls against anyone yet? e36 M3's make about 220 to the wheels...

I'll make an uneducated guess and say your car can make another 8whp with a proper tune.
What brand pullies, exhaust and intake did you go with? Thanks in advance.
