That had yet to develop (for the n54)?

GM had no foresight into the aftermarket of the LS motors when they began production. They were late to the show with enhancements themselves.

Theres also the issue that most automobile companies design engines to run at RATED HP and torque for several hundred hours (so they are much more conservative on power production) - something that the aftermarket has no concerns about.

I think the sticker on all BMWs that basically say "mods will void warranty" is missing from your car

Well, considering the road that we were both on (heading to the freeway) was maybe 1.5 miles, and its pretty common people using it to head to the freeway.. if that were the case, she needs some mental help.

You have a lot to learn about women - they're not impressed by that sh*t. (And if they are, they're bad news)

I thought we got bmws for their great handling, not to see who can go fast down a straight road and dodge the most traffic?

In all seriousness why can't people just keep it on the tracks, your much better off demonstrating your driving skills there, I'm sure you get to run along with much nicer cars, more controlled environment, and your not breaking the law.

Face it we all think were better drivers than we really are, besides shit happens. There's a reason why the most expensive cars to insure are ones that teens drive and probably street race in. They end up planting themselves in trees endangering others in the process. Are you seriously ragging on old people? I guess some people don't hit maturity till much later.

I had no intention of impressing, proving driving skill or any of that crap. I just wanted to see how the straight line performance of my car was against an ISF (and this is about the only one around this town - having seen it multiple times and NO others) - nothing more.

Il tell you what, yall continue to rale on me if you wish. Im not responding anymore
later
