The only reason why I stated ESS is b/c of the value....they were offering a stage 1 kit for 9K installed and I agree w/u 100% on the cooling part...if it was my car i would pay extra for the cooling regardless of what stage i got
I was being facetious w/the turbo lol I just keep seeing the hpf kits on the e46 m3s and it makes me envious & sad that we cant do anything like than on the e9X m's yet
When I bought the car, the engine was a big part of that decision so to me at least it would be sacrilegious to change it for a 4.6L but at the same time it would be sacrilegious 2 add FI to it as well b/c the philosophy of M has always been to be NA....like someone said f uc k it & go for broke, do stroker and s/c...
Also to everyone else...I think this is gonna be a constructive thread so lets keep the name-calling OT & not part of this thread...please no e-thuggery
