But what if you can get more noise out of your benjamins?

FYI...I'm with you. I've done Dinan Stage 2, camber plates, NT01s, square tires, and a 4 wheel BBK.

So I think a BBK is a much better place to waste money than an x-pipe and exhaust.

Just got some time to forum surf again. I 100% agree with you that a BBK is worth more than those two.

It's a slippery slope no matter which way you go.

Maybe I'm just jealous of all your BBK guys...

Don't be, you will justify blowing your 401k money soon enough.

Well last week cost me many multiples of BBKs (PFC) as the market dropped. 7.5 yrs and counting down to using my 401k money!
