Finally after 6months my M3 roared to life, well actually started and then died.
325ISBeamer just installed my new exhaust with custom 2.25” piping pics to follow, from my headers into one “2 in, 2 out catalyst converter” connecting to AA Gen 3 exhaust. After grueling hours of work and my expert supervision “ Yeah right”, I turned the ignition held it for 3-4 seconds and she stumbled to life and died. Tried again and she actually fired up and idled @1000Rpm on her own. Now all I got to do is find all of the Supercharger and vacuum leaks and she will be fine. Good news there is no “Check Engine” light on.
Much thanks to 325ISBeaemer and his 325IS, if it weren’t for his help, I would be still trying to connect all of the wiring. During the brief idle for approx 15 sec. The new exhaust has a nice rumble to it and most of all quite, WOT test info to follow.

Good Luck with it!
