Then you would have been in the same boat you are now...spending tons of cash for little gains. Having a boosted motor makes mild mods worth the money. I've built cars for the better part of 20 years. Think I dumped close to $50k in the 350Z to get to 800whp. Only spent about $7k getting the X3 to get 600whp.

Nevertheless...keep up the good work. We don't make strides in performance by doing what everyone else would do. Car looks good. Only thing I'd consider at this point would be to upgrade the valve body in the transmission for more consistent shifts. Not sure what the torque capacity is of the 7 series trans....I have yet to mod mine. Doubt I ever will since she is getting close to 100k miles. I'm just going to do stereo, drop, rims, and done.
