All I was saying is that a lot of people are disappointed in the E30 simply because the expectations are not set right. Which is easy to do when every review out there says its amazing, blah, blah.

I believe what Brett was saying is that anyone that has much time around M3 forums knows that the S14 isn't a torque monster and needs to be wrung out and bouncing off of the limiter to be any fun. Can see your point if one did not know this pre purchase, but ...."Sean is fairly well versed in BMW. I would give him more credit than that. A lot more..." so chances are he was very aware. Sure even with that knowledge most would like to own an E30 but some will inevitable will be still disappointed - no?

What do people do to pass smog with the airbox here in CA? I assume you have to swap it out for the stock intake and put the stock software back in. Right? Sorry for derailing the thread, but since we're on the subject anyway...

You can copy the US OBD2 stuff the the CSL engine management, so it passes standard plug in OBD2.

Visual... idk how that works. But, IIRC CA did away with that?

Mmmmmm I dunno, I'm pretty sure they do visual still. I have a Dinan intake with CARB sticker so I've never had them say anything, but they definitely look.

If the car is tuned properly how would a different intake manifold affect CARB testing?
