We could always start a 128i chat thread(even use this one) and just post daily thoughts/ideas/whatever. I'll kick it off.
I'm in, I have floated a few ideas here and there.

I ordered SuperSprint's 125i headers which work on the 128i. Gives us proper equal length headers and deletes the primary cat, but we still have the secondaries so it should be fine.
Ops, i got no secondaries :P.
Want to know more information and cost to ship.

Also sourced a 330i intake manifold with the DISA valves off a wrecked E90 330i. And I just picked up an AFE stage 2 intake in the FS section.
Nice, was the wrecker local or through the web? Source?

Should have some pretty good power soon.

Considering getting the headers properly heat coated(which generally yields even more power.
Probably near that 290hp range Raceman talked about with a tune. Without prob 260- 275
Are MMW headeres coated stock? How much extra cost do you think the coat is?
