understandable, I need to do the same. I'm inactively trying to find a decent used enclosed car trailer, but that may take a while.

enclosed is so heavy. Plus, normies can't see your cool car. My trailer came out to 1200lbs. so thats like less than 4k to tow. W00t!

meh, not worried about weight, I haul an 8k trailer no problem and I'm eventually getting an f250 duper duty with the PowerStroke. open trailers are no good here where they salt like crazy all winter.

haha, still not turbo'd yet Joe, but it's coming soon. I'm still waiting on my MS unit to get here, Mitch over on tech is building it but between him being in school and me continually having him adding new features it's taking forever. Hope to have the MS installed by June, after I get the car painted. Then I can start buying turbo goodies.

That's how it goes though... Its my only gripe with the e30...power adders are generally very pricey...

it'll be worth it in the end though!

Theres right and theres also slow. They don't necessarily correlate. But if you DIY, it's better slow than sorry.

doing it right quickly is possible, if you have piles of money taking up room at your house...
