What is the best performance upgrade you can buy with $6000

What is the best performance upgrade you can buy with $6000???

(Preferably one single upgrade... not a bunch together like exhaust intake flash etc. that add up to $6000)

ummmm......Full exhaust system maybe?

Yet that should make you land much less than $6k, unless you go for something like the Akrapovic full system, which is around $5-6k I believe.

That's kinda random. You can't really get a lot of power for $6000 with only one upgrade.

I agree with Nawaaz, get a full exhaust.

Yeah, I'd rather to all the basic mods together so that it will combine to add a huge punch.

Heck, all my mods in my sig add up to about $6k, and that's pretty reasonable (or reasonably expensive I should say )

He's saying you'll have to buy a new engine when it blows up I think. Either way his numbers are way off. A new M3 engine is over 30k if my memory is accurate.

+1 yes you will be buying a new engine.... I didn't realize it was over 30k for a new engine... I guess SC, then new engine after it blows puts you well over $30k

I doubt for the E92 M3 because they are still too new. However if you go to the e46 forums, every single tuner has had S/C cars blow at some point. It's just a part of the game.
