i mean to be honest if the interior was handcrafted with all the finest blah blah and came with white gold in the interior as well as 50 bulls' hides and the highest quality toilet paper and blah blah blah then maybe i could appreciate the price

they're trying to meet at the line with the luxury car market and the performance enthusiast market but i don't see any options on the car that wow me on the luxury end and performance wise, well that's pretty much self explanatory "

Dodging what? WTF are you talking about?

I don't freaking care. Rent a track, rent 10 tracks, go nuts. WTF does it bother me? They can bring a billion cars to race. All I care about is videos and promoting my network.

I don't give a flying rat's ass about anything else you have invented in your head.

I don't know who this 'we' is you are speaking for. You aren't a part of anything. YOU HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANY OF THIS. "

You did raise an interesting point: boost control. My end game is a single turbo, might it be easier to start there and run my own system for boost control?
Yeah I've heard that, but I'm just not familiar with how it controls it... or honestly much about how the DI functions on our car from an electrical/engineering standpoint... side effect of not really needing to touch it on our cars, just tell the computer the afr and gg. If it controls it and the hpfp (should be easy on that one) that's cool. But anyway, yes going single with a different form of boost control would be much easier. The vacuum actuated gates would take one or two outputs just for them, and then you might be limited with the others... You could sacrifice exhaust vanos probably but I'm unsure what else you might need, since the water pump is also electric and a few other things that will need output.

Biggest hurdles will be- crank sensor, compatible? Cam sensors, compatible? DI, can you use it? The rest I don't see an issue with although you may have to use other sensors and do some custom work (like use a non bmw tb/pedal if it can't be controlled). The things you can't easily custom fab would be the crank/cam stuff. Knock sensors aren't necessary but are nice, you can always use a more premative knock sensor just select based on bore size etc. If NECESSARY, crank/cam sensors/rings can be custom fabricated (press or weld/modify the reluctor ring etc). But if you're not doing most of the work yourself it would be super $$$. Interesting project, I would have loved to try about 7 years ago. "

YOU'RE NOT A PART OF THIS. YOU DON'T HAVE A CAR TO RACE WITH. YOU AREN'T COMMITTING ANY TIME OR MONEY. STOP TALKING.

I love your negativity though. It's so adorable how you get your little panties in a twist. "

What the fuck are you babbling about? Seriously? What do you have to do with anything?

What are these fantasy scenarios and assumptions you are coming with? Just sit on the sidelines.

If any of these people are serious about running I have an airstrip good for 1/2 mile+ runs.

Maybe you would prefer if I shut down an interstate to do runs in the middle of the night instead? LOL "

Aww that's so cute little boy. You should go watch your Fast and the Furious DVDS and let the men who actually have the cars talk.

Yeah it sure sounded like I wasn't willing to commit to a date.

Why are you poking your nose in again? Is it your car? Your time? Your money? "

Pocono would be perfect to get these runs in. "

Some want E85 tunes, with and without jb4. A few added mods after getting a tune. I mean honestly, there's no such thing as a OTS that works for everyone. Terry has a few flashes, the better ones get bad mileage because they are race flashes. The normal flashes aren't aggressive enough for others if they run E85. It really helps to learn what the tables do and just do it yourself imo, if the "tuners" don't want to take your money just read up.

Pump, E30, E50, meth, FBO, intercooler/no intercooler, throttle pedal preferences, how aggressive do you want (track endurance, strip kill mode, street balanced) etc will all effect timing, afr, boost and a few other aspects. What stage does each fall under? Sure, FBO+93 and stock E30+91 are kinda similar but E30+93+FBO is much different, which stage is which? Imo if you buy a Cobb, buy a protune. If you bbflash, start reading and logging. It only takes an afternoon to dial a setup in pretty well on this car.

Makes sense "
