So my questions are, anyone have baseline dyno charts, and then some of going to stage 1 or 2? Anyone go from a modded Evo/STI/Ralliart/WRX etc? I put down 275hp/320ft/lb on Sunny's Dyno Dynamics, and I'm finding that it's just not quick enough for me. My Ralliart runs out of breath from 5k+ on, which I'm hoping will be cured if I went to an NA V8.
Should I wait for the F8x M3? Or find a good deal on a 2009+ one? I can't see myself paying full sticker for a new one since a new model will be out at the end of 2013 and values for e9x's will drop. Anyone returning their lease soon?
You want a quick car and you are thinking about an e93 M3?!
