Interesting to hear, I would like to do that eventually. Where does your intake go/what kind of filter are you running?

K&N cylinder type filter, basically located in back of the drivers side brake intake duct. You can see the element if you look in the intake on the fascia.

Im going to get an m3 evo type fiberglass bumper/fascia later on, the stock shit weighs a ton, plus will make a mold of it too so I can make replacements.

did you ever put it on rollers before the maf to get base line numbers? would be interested to see actual gains. Looks nice either way.

Pffft man I am starting to think E30's should be illegal to drive in winter... They are just too damn much fun!! But I will say not having a garage means you have to have your shit all ready to go when winter hits, cuz working on my car for the next 6 months will be a complete pain in the ass.
