I guess whenever something new is out, old get much cheaper, but still new are always better, and will always be your desire.
BTW, the 25K was for a complete swap bumper to bumper not only the engine

Okay, that is completely insane! It'd be cheaper for us to ship our cars to Egypt, have the work done and then shipped back!

When Roman's got good news I'm sure he will happily share it with us. Until then, good luck fine tuning the details!

It's starting to look like the ESS SC is just a giant dick tease.

It'll happen. Just give it time. They are busy releasing other products that are more expensive

To be honest, considering the time frame, it probably wouldn't be released until Bimmerfest West 2015. That'll give them time to release it in front of thousands.

I hope the 28 series sc gets done before the end of the year. If it doesn't ill probably just build it n/a. I've been holding off on all performance mods because of this thread but SS headers are just so tempting!

They mentioned the 3 stage intake manifold not making a difference, but I don't recall seeing any info about having headers + the SC kit.
Does anyone know if having cat-less headers would benefit/not make a difference with this SC kit?

Sweet, thanks for the reply.
E46Driver, looks like you got the green light on those headers then. Unless you're planning on one or the other.

you can get afe headers. I think those come with high flow cats. I'd get rid of the sec cats and resonator, and maybe an aftermarket market muffler first.

This conversation is like 2 years ahead of the game lol
