What's up guys so Christmas is finally rolling around and y'all know what that means! Mods so I have been trying to come up with a plan to get ahold of a used 3 stage manifold to drop in before I the stage 2 AA tune. So if anyone knows of where I could get my hands on one please let me know! I have been searching for one and the guys at the shop are keeping their eyes peel; brand new they are upwards of 2000 so that's a little out of my budget! I will try to get my car on a dyno after I Christmas to show the results.

Currently have a PE and getting either a eurobox or BMW performance intake hopefully followed by a manifold swap and to top it off a stage 2 AA tune!

Do yourself a favor and grab the tune now. AA doesn't charge much if at all for retunes, and having it now is way worth it.

wait for the next "discount special" that AA will offer for the tune.

Save yourself some money lol. I'm pretty much ready for the tune, just waiting on the next special 20% off sale.

If you go used, I've seen some intake manifolds for as low as $400 w/ the parts needed for the retrofit. Try to get in touch with your local salvage yards.

Because we can't afford M3's, we compensate for lack of horsepower with other mods. Just search "three stage intake manifold," and you'll find lots.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

N51's already have it correct? Or at least that is what I have been led to believe.

Came in to suggest this.


Check first, you can even do a visual check and see if you have it.

If you do not, go to www.car-part.com and check for a used one. That is where I got mine from.
