I was thinking the same thing myself.

But I'm not changing anything for a couple months. I'll run 8psi now, then up to 15psi when I need it.

Then, I'll get a ZF tranny.

Get a GT35r.

Blow up current motor.

Install built motor.

Run 20psi, 600whp.

Done.

Problem?



I think so. If you look carefully, you can see the pretty big crack go through half the collector. Sorry for the cell phone pics.



Solution.



It's the middle one, my old stainless ebay one, then my new ebay cast manifold we're testing out. It's looking good so far, flow should be as good as the SPA manifold (the last one) however placement isn't quite as nice.

But considering a new SPA is $600, and we got these for $200, you can't go wrong. (Actual non discounted price is $350 shipped btw)






.
New manifold in place.



We only worked on it for 3 hours today. The waste-gate and downpipe needs to be re-done to fit the new manifold. Should be done before the weekend then finally video time.

Thanks man!

No, exhaust leak started right after I put the third tune in, which then the car was running perfect, except the big leak, so I didn't drive it much.

Vids will come this weekend if not sooner!

I'm in depending on how far I have to drive. Frank whats your zip code? I think you would be farthest east. I'd be farthest west. So somewhere in the middle of there. I'd say somewhere in PA.

Sounds good to me. I have no friends with E36s. One with an E30.

I would love Cali.

However, I *extremely* doubt my car would pass any kind of smog.
