Yah.. so a lot.
I am not required to share how much my mods cost, if i wish to then i may but its not something I share, Thats like me asking me how much you make a year, its rude. Ill give you this, i save around 2500 bucks by doing it myself and buying this kit "used"

you dont have to be uptight op asking how much you paid is very very different than asking how much you make in a year.

im curious also

I certainly hope no tools fell in your engine during installation. Looks like a messy work process.

Either way, beat some M3's now and post up the videos so we can get erections.

All tools accounted for. There isnt really a place for a tool to "fall" in You would almost have to purposely place a tool in the intake for that to happen

Hey, nice job, how did it run? And do you have auto or manual? What exhaust are you runnin with that?
Its an auto but this coming winter i will swap a 6 speed in along with other performance parts. I have bimmer brake headers and thats it for exhaust. It ran pretty good, We had troubles getting it running as we put the MAF in backwards :facepalm: so it would start but not run after we put it in the correct way it started and ran great, there was some adjustment that had to be done belt wise. It blew black smoke for about 10 min because of the old stale gas but its great now

Congrat's on the new toys. Nothing wrong with a mess, as long as its an organized mess. It's funny how everybody here wants to know how much everything costs. If you pay a lot they tell you how ripped off you got, and if you pay too little there must be something wrong with it.
