baja bug dailydriver/car to beat on.
chevy pickup. 80's shortbed or a 50's step side.
and after i get the chevy sold(it will be a fix-up-and-sell kinda projects) maybe some sort of bimmer. or maybe i wont get the chevy and just save up for an 8-series.*drools*.

About half way down the page #14805 is what you are listening to.

http://www.magnaflow.com/02product/s...ne=main&id=386

Cats and center resonator still in place. It just gets louder when you remove anything else.

I have a set of 14815 waiting for me to get enthused enough to put them on.

BUT the quiet does have merits too. I have the Cobra if I want loud.

It doesn't sound like a Ferrari is what you are trying to say?

No one that I know of has suceeded in making the 2 valve BMW 5 liter V12 sound like one of those "sewing machine in heat" thingys

craig that dream 850 is going to cost you some "hay" (grain factory right?) so you better have a strict savings plan if you're going to be making $9 an hour - that's not exactly Howard Hughes bucks

I hope you new boss Dan owns a calculator also - $9 hr to make 32k is about an 80hr work week and that's before taxes.

You mean with overtime? Because 9 bucks full time is just under 19k gross.

Either way, do your research, because the 8 series is seriously a money pit. I was considering it last year, and I figured it was gonna be a hell of a lot more operational cost than the E39 I'm eventually gonna get.

Most of the 8 series you find will probably need over a grand in maintenance, plus insurance and paying for gas for an 8 series wont be cheap for your age man, im not saying dont get the car, but its $. And I cant see a brand new turbo kit for 6k giving you that much power. I bet it would be hard to make a turbo kit for an 8 series. They are only just that sorta price for an e36 in most cases..
