You know, I think your right.

I think I'll sell it next week and get an M3/4. haha

It is... just comes down to physics... we don't have that structural bar right after the doors... but we have way stronger doors (heavyer I might add too)

Looks like Harry needs to learn some manual shift though.

Cheers on the purchase. Now I don't have to install a manual swap + flywheel + LSD.

DAmn you, lol, that was me idea

Well, don't feel bad though. This will be one of like 4 or 5 2.9 strokers built in the US alone. You know how hard it will be to find tuning that won't reem my wallet dry? That's why if you wait long enough and let me do the dirty work, you won't have to worry about that. I am planning on using a megasquirt system as a standalone and go from there. That will be fun, and I don't mind sharing my maps either.

Thanks, yeah, I mean, I dunno, either the system or the massive engien upgrade will be done right after the car is back up. But AA has given me the green light for software though... they said "don't worry about software we've done it before, you just worry about the engine it's self, once you do that we'll reflash your ecu "

Now, this might actually help you though, they have done it in a 325 before...

Yup, and charged 5k for the setup. I am looking to spend max of 2k, and that is with a knife-edged crank.

Oh yeah, you can get the EWS deleted through a software upgrade. This was only possible on the 95's though.

I like EWS. With my luck, I'd need it one day, hah.

User not setup in Rate My Car.
Click here to set it up.
you son of a bitch. all this talk of turning your 328 into the ultimate power house, then you go and pull something like this. You lying mother f*cker.

haha, just kidding, but this really blew me away, would have thought that you had way too many plans for something like this. I know you will love it, and it's a beautiful car. I may also be interested in a few of the pieces you put up for sale.

BTW- what are you going to do with teh m3 bumper you bought?
