      I totally respect the technical/performance advantages of a front mid-engine design, but I will never warm up to the resulting aesthetic proportions. It just looks so wrong to me, like some old...

      Wanna know how I know you haven't actually driven a Fiesta ST?

      Same here. They're even the inspiration behind our forged design we've named The Mullet :D

      To get 600hp+ from a 2.6 SOHV 4-cyl engine is no small accomplishment.

      I mean, we're talking just one valve here, people :thumbup:

      Happened to me back in the '90s.

      A local judge decreed that I become the personal butler of the guy I hit.

      Lucky for me he was neat and thin.

      Seriously? Shady?

      FTR we built the prototype bumper and shopped it around to various manufacturers. At the end of the day it became clear that the potential volume for the bumper wasn't going to...

      Welcome to the club, and :beer: to you for adding back the missing function!

      Do you know why the PO went M50 vs. S50/52? Were they planning to go turbo?

      My previous E30M was an S50 swap with...

      Congrats! I've had several sets of these in various cars over the years and have never found anything I like more. I've got a set on the way for the E30 M3 :)

      Yes, I think they're messing with you a little - to me it looks like the strips of camo that surround the top and bottom of the window are added for fun. You can see where they're most likely stuck...

      I'm curious to know how much potential flow the stock exhaust manifold has, since it's now part of the cylinder head. In the past, most "Stage 3" kits that employ bigger turbos have also included...

      Yup! But only on the AWD/CVT model. That CVT isn't terrible, but if that car had a proper manual (or even its sister-car the Clio RS's dual-clutch), that'd be a pretty tempting daily driver.

      On the track it doesn't have to - we completely turn of ESP for track work. On the street the added traction of the LSD means we don't really notice the electronic assist doing a whole lot.

      Unfortunately, no. We're using Quaifes in ours and as you'd imagine the results are fairly awesome.
