Its a huge difference in power/torque from an M20.
I couldn't stop smiling after the first ride. also got it sideways without even trying.
the sound of Open Supersprint Replica Header @ WOT its astonishing.
*rockout*

The car should be ready in a month from today.

Sorry Guys i forgot the camera @ home so no videos/Pics

BIG Thanx to E30Kid.

Btw, what exhaust setup are you gonna be running on? I'm in the market of one now.

since the collectors on the headers are 2", ill take it into an X pipe which also 2" and from there into a universal Muffler which is also 2" Dual.

congrats Mike. Your m20 must have been shot, people on r3v now say that m50 swap isn't even worth it (go figure). Vanos midrange is definitely meaty.

enjoy the newly found power (and fuel economy.... ....yea right :) )

tick tick tick you'll get after heavy autox'ing (if you ever go to one)
you still run the clutch fan? if not, how are your temps in 30+C heat and stop 'n go.

let me know how fast you get used to the power ;)
