ok, well thats real nice.

why did u go with those choices (such as chip and diff and exhaust) over the ones i stated?

r u the first to do mtech sides with reiger front back on an e30?

it looks like a good combo.

I don't know if i'm the first one to do MTech sides with the Rieger bumpers, but I certainly haven't seen that combo before I did it. I wasn't sure if it would look good. The result was satisfactory, but the front and rear bumpers came closer to the ground than the MTech sides. That bugged me, so I went to a junk yard and found some small rocker skirts to add under the MTechs making everything even from a side profile. They happen to be from a '93 Civic hatch.

There are many choices for different products out there, so not everyone's application is the same. Exhaust-wise, my friends have had very bad experiences with Supersprint since the first versions were not stainless... plus they are rediculously over-priced for what you actually get. I also personally know the owner of Brullen, so he hooked me up with his stainless system.

The fact that my car has forced induction will explain the need for the largest, free flowing exhaust available... everything stock was scrapped including the headers. The chip was custom made because of my OBD-1/OBD-2 hybrid ECU/harness. When you mate a newer M52 transmission to the stock 3.73 E30 diff, you get a very short setup... equivalent to a 4.25 ratio. This is because the transmission gearing is different than the older Getrag 260. Couple that to 350+HP and you have a some serious wheelspin issues, that's why I went with the 3.23LSD (still felt like a 3.91). I hope this helps.
