Trust me, I don't want to, but I'm going to.

Only pulls, no launches, or burn outs.

Mostly finished engine bay, BOV placement, ect.



803 Maf, filter. You can see we pulled the MAF wire back through the harness to this side.







Please don't hate the primered M bumper, or the nasty old headlights. All getting fixed stat.



No more turbo oil leak, at least it's not here.



Tucked



That is all, didn't really get on it too hard. Broke the tires loose in 2nd at about 25mph. Couldn't even do that in first before

Vids coming soon!

Thanks for all the compliments, tips, and ect throughout this build. I will continue my car expanding in this very thread.

Meh

I could say that, but I don't want to get hopes all high, then not do it

Thanks man!

Turbo, ehaust, BOV, Wastegate all make for a sound only described as orgasmic.

Nope, bumper came with the car, from a black M3. Restored it, now I'm going to paint it asap!

We'll just say it was much cheaper than the closest kit you can buy new.

Waiting until Don gets a 6 speed, or until I come across a cheap one. Couldn't get a hold of the guy close to me with the ZF. Sorry man, when it comes out, it WILL be yours though.
