I have the amp set to monoblock mode
Hopefully another amp will be in my near future for my boston acoustic componet set
Lpf? if you got it... turn it on.. amazing quality.. and i like the specs on it... my 2 12's were a little bit for each than your single one but... still very nice.. i miss my system....


okay and poll:
Option 1: Stripped out race car, with bare minimum to make it a comfortable Daily driver...
Or.....
Option 2: A comfortable Vert, with more power than stock to get up and go... a sleeper car comfortable... but not as fast.

Don't flame... i want true opinions... i might save Option 1 for a e30 race car build eventually.

I ordered EBC Red Stuff brake pads for front/rear. Replacing the Green Stuff I installed about 6 months ago. Looking for more bite and less dust.

Today I changed my cabin microfilter and reset the oil service lights with a paperclip. First time for both. So easy.

Today with the help of a friend I managed to:

1. Change my leaky input shaft seal...

(old seal)


2. Install the new (not fcuked up) end links that were chilling in my garage for 5 months...



and last but not least...

3. Managed to scare the sh!t out of my mom by running straight headers in my garage...

no picture for that one...

Yes, having all green is a beautiful feeling. Since I'm on the first oil change in my new E36, I'm curious to find out what will come first, 4k miles, or no greens...

I'm pretty sure at least 4K will come first, I've heard it's 6+
