  1. The SN should be stamped just above the label (end of the plywood).
  2. Look up the cost of new and cut in half? Bold strategy, Cotton.

    Again, this is sort of my area... You're not teaching me or anyone here anything. What you will find on all of them... Same tuning strategies.

    Again, I never assumed anything. I know a little bit about the Lambo-borrowed Audi motor, too. My first response proved a point in that they weren't as different as you claimed. Please stop coming back with 'my assumptions'.

    I'm not making assumptions. But... I do have little more experience than the single example I have shown.

    Audi/VW are basically the same... Even uses the same map between the two brands for a like vehicle.

    I tune, but I have not tuned BMW's, so I can't speak for how well their tune works. I have heard of the JB4, but obviously have not used it. I believe I may have one friend running it on his current gen M3/4, but I would have to ask. He's been racing it on track and autoX and it hasn't blown up... And it is a full street car.

  9. I had 3 subs in my theater. The 3rd, in that room and seating position changed everything... For the better.
  10. Exactly, horn subs are big. I've been using a single SVS PC-4000 with my La Scalas and did the trick for my room and seating position (fairly large room). I am curious to see if I'll want to add another when we move to a new house. I am a fan of the cylinder subs as they don't take up a lot of floor space.

    Been spending a bit more time at the track lately... None in my own car. A couple of the cars I tuned recently, the owners told me to come to the track and bring my helmet. 500whp STi - Time Attack at PPIR this weekend (I was tuning another car on the the track the day prior and got to see a Hill Climb NSX put his hood into the windshield. Such a bummer). E30 tuned RS-3 (this one was a tuner friend of mine... He tuned it, but he wanted me to show him around the track). The rest of the car was bone stock and the brakes were not on par, which I knew would be the case. Ate up the front pads almost entirely that day and had to bleed the fluid several times just to get back out for a few more laps. This was a Lemons car I went out to Detroit to tune... New and technical track, and I hadn't driven the car before. I went out without even looking at a track map or videos, so I basically spent time learning the track... Not particularly fast. Finally, I attended this one only as track support to a friend. The white STi makes roughly 500whp and at these roll races, your trap speed is pretty much on par as what your trap speed would be in a drag race. We were trying to hit the 120mph mark, which it had, but took a little bit more driving (brake boost, no-lift shifting). We also did a compressor comparison video with the STi in the roll race.

    I play that and Lewdle... I'm 52-0 on Lewdle. I'm actually proud of that. 😛
