Not to mention suspension work. After that the car have been completely over-hauled into something entirely different from where it started.
Throw the single turbo on a 1M then. Literally all of your issues resolved! Will still need new clutch eventually and could benefit from even better suspension but you wil get LSD, can fit 295s or wider in back, upgraded brakes and suspension is pretty good out of the box.

Not a bad idea! That would be one hell of a car.

Have you ever get that WTF feeling when you turn your head to loud exhaust revs belongs to a 110HP Honda Civic? That is exactly how the guy in the Ferrari felt. In any of my cars, I'd roll down my window and let them know what I have under the hood and insinuate that I do not wish to waste gas on them.

This defines the meaning of a car enthusiast. To each of their own. I have built the paramount of what a person can possibly put in an E93 with ESS Supercharger, Brembo BBK F&R, V3 Coilovers, Intake, and was running with Akrapovic full system for a while. I ended up bringing the E93 back to NA. With all the technology put into the M3 it is such a waste to chopped it up like I did. I can out corner and out run any supercharged M3 in my N/A E93 any day on the track. Being a BMW enthusiast I know it was the right thing to do.

It is easier to over compensate for a small penis when it comes to the boys and their car. It is brainless to burn out and trip second on a straight a way with all those mods thinking that you will be a little extra cool because you just "Smoked" a Ferrari. At the end of the day the Ferrari will get a man more pussies than a M3.

My AMS Alpha 9 GTR can smoke my M3 and my F430 Scuderia any time any day. In the end the F430 is still my favorite in terms of style, engineering, tradition, and the spirit of Ferrari. GTR, a true Japanese muscle. M3, a german engineering marvel. All three of my babies are head turners at the Cars and Coffee Irvine.

I can live my life as a professional with my E93 daily driver, a boy racer dream come true in my GTR, and a connossieur in my F430 Scuderia when my wife and I go to a nice restaurant in LA on the weekend. My wife drives all three of my babies. She's so hot in the Scuderia I've seen guys drooling when I was following her home in the M3. Chicks drooling over me when I am in the Scuderia vice versa. Well guys drools over the wifey period while racer boys drools over me when I am in the M3 and the GTR.

In the end, I can really give a two shit if someone in a M3 "Smoked" me in my F430. People in my neighborhood knows that I will just come back with my GTR and repay the favor. Also the unfamiliar concept of respect for another car enthusiast has alot to do with the small penis syndrom demonstrated on this board. Don't race on the streets, take it to the track!

I've taken down a 458 in my lowly n52 on the track. Anyone can go straight and smash the pedal. But on track, it's all about who's got bigger cajones going into the braking zone and turn.

Coming down the straight, 458, Evo and me


Going into the 'bulb'... me, 458, Evo

From experience, my 335 is faster than one. I was playing around with one on the highway about a month ago. I was behind him he downshifted twice while waiting on traffic, I put it in third at about 55 mph and floored it when he did. To about 120 I pulled about a car on him. I am FBO +meth 50/50 mix on pump gas stock turbos. Talk about a symphony being behind him on a pull like that.

Maybe he didn't wanna push it to hard and that doesn't look like an EVO more like a Lancer

Doesn't matter if it was an Evo, Lancer or a spaceship. The point is, there are plenty of fast(er) cars on track. And you're wrong about not pushing it. I was in the classroom with that driver after each session, nobody shows up in a full nomex suit just to chill out. You see a guy cruising in his GT2 on some boulevard, yea he probably wasn't pushing it. You see the same guy on track, guarantee he's driving hard. Not to mention that same 458 hit 140+ on the straight, I don't consider that chilling....

You'd be surprised how many folks with exotic cars give it their all in the beginner groups but still can't hold its own against a competent driver in an e30. It's not the car, it's the driver.

You're absolutely right. It's the driver. And that guy needs to attend driving school if he lost with a 458

A hair on 1-2 shift, but mine was an 09 w/ LC1. Hopefully with built tranny and newer logic it'll be better.
