I think this is another confirmation that BMW makes damn sturdy cars... and that there always will be a bigger idiot then you thought possible.

Well, if he isn't actually boosting the motor, it's going to last quite sometime. But on the otherhand, if this dipshit can't even get this right, what else has he fucked up on the car?

It came across to me that he was implementing that the afm was just being blown through, not that everything is backwards lol. My bad.

ummmmm Thomas/Mike would never do such a thing. It happens that fuckstick used the same kit as AF does. It's a proven kit that makes nice power..... when installed right.

I really want to know if that moron fixes the piping.... and then blows it up per lack of a boost controller.

I know they built a red e30 coupe. If would have to see the owner but I am thinking someone got the car and fucked it up.
