thanks Stu,
damn you were at Cars and Coffee, I didn't see your car. I drove through there one time, then parked by the little market. Sucks, would have liked to have taken a better look at yours.

yeah it weighs a little less. I'm making 225 torque at 3k which is good for my mods compared to other similar M3 dyno's I've found. Only thing I can think of is the different transmission and lightweight flywheel allowing the drivetrain to put power down.

What I want? 400+ hp at the wheels, 300+ ft/lb torque is what I'm feeling right now.

that would be nice, but ESS is so much cheaper. I wish I had more money to really set it apart, but at the moment not so much.

Here's a 8 second e30, do any of you all know this guy Boris?

My Ride: Needs a cage
8-9 second passes....I think most guys want that Car is sitting pretty Anton, don't get hung up in #'s. It's fun, but it's $$.....if you're a single guy, it's no big deal, but as a family guy looking back at the $$ spent on my car, I know I could have spent it wiser. Not saying its not fun as hell, cause it is, it's just not something necessary, that's for sure! but since I got it, I'll drive it.
