indeed it is !! This car was bone stock 2 months ago (purchased in late April), amazing how far it has transformed in such a short amount of time. Hopefully we can get some track time in before it gets to cold

OK here we go... The cage is done in Myles car now. JW Racing did a beautiful job on it. We ended up making a couple adjustments to the converter to get it where we wanted. We're in the process of getting his wheels and tires all set and strapping this thing down for a tune. After that track shakedown!

The 3 series has been the benchmark to which all manner of vehicles are measured. The comparisons go beyond the likes of the A4, C-Class and S60 and include things like M3 vs Camaro, 328i vs Prius. There’s a problem with your largest volume product being put on this kind of pedestal: how do you redesign it? Carefully, mildly, infrequently and only when absolutely required. With increased competition from the Audi A4,

What's that red filter by the throttle body? Is that part of the JRE Vortech upgrade kit? What about catch cans is one gonna be installed?

I believe the lil red filter is part of the JRE upgrade kit. The Monster catch can should be installed, I see the 2 lines in the pic but not the can itself.

Yep this car is getting the RX Monster Catch Can, actually it's already installed

The red filter is a crankcase breather
