I've got large injectors already installed and the car is no longer running a stock ecu/maf so it'll have to be tuned.

I was going to be running the car on e85 but because of it's prone to sitting for long periods of time, I'm keeping it on gasoline for now.

From what I gather, my money is better spent on suspension and tires at this stage in the game. I'd rather piece together a(n almost) bulletproof turbo setup while gaining experience in a slower, but tight NA car.

Also, you never call me anymore. Are we through?

I gathered this a few years ago as well and completely agree. So far the money i've spent in suspension has been the best dollar per enjoyment investment i've made in my car.

Look at this! Time in da clink did you some good. Fresh out of banishment and getting your life straight with some FM goodies. Even putting suspension before powa! They grow up so fast.

How does FM's 3" downpipes work? Do they all work off of the same upper casting part? I see a hybrid-3" exhaust upgrade and a full 3" exhaust, but no mention of 3" DP only, and those two options don't show a new casting.

I'm not sure. I'm going to have something fabricated locally because I'll save money.
