Thanks man I appreciate it. Honestly, it is a big project. When I started to see these pop up here and there (Alex and Chris initiated my interest) I was like, "oh man this is plug and play" HAHAHAHA oh how I was wrong. I wouldn't really recommend anyone doing this build unless they have the mechanical know how to tackle it themselves or a large budget to pay someone else to do it for them and then from a cost to benefits comparison I don't think it's worth it.



PM'd replied, looking forward to it.



Hey buddy. Hopefully she can make it down to COTA next year to have some fun with you.

The exhaust probably will be the last thing I do. Initially I was planning on going custom dual back to a Status muffler or something similar. Something that would look semi stock and all E46 M3 from the back.

Since I started this I have contemplated having the registration changed from Colorado to Kansas. In Kansas they don't care about a damn thing except for seatbelts and headlights lol. If I can find a way to get this done then it will give me a bit more freedom not only from an exhaust standpoint but will also give me the possibility to go full stand alone ECU with an abbreviated wiring harness just for the basics.

You know I have always wanted side pipes.

The other issue is that for "phase 1" of this build I was wanting to retain the factory interior. Basically just to save the $5k it would take me to do a basic fixed back, roll bar and harness setup. If I go side pipes I don't think there is any way I can retain the oem interior.
Knowing how these projects escalade pretty quick, may I also suggest side exhaust or single exhaust in case you ever decide to install a proper diffuser?

Thought SS would've had this wrapped up. OE GTR headers can be had for $18k..
