    Sounds like that gt4 got a proper gearbox or is it just an agressively tuned stock auto?

      i want one, but $$$, but also more so that it's $$$ for an item i would likely ding/dent on the road?

          DIY a Ti system, I guess the mufflers will still be expensive but you can save some money. I didn;t give any fucks for titanium exhausts until I picked up a Ti system, the lightness is pretty amazing.

          You could probably get most of the way with thinwall stainless, if you could find it.

              A guy I know took his to Wakefield last week, Semis and a Tune (I think it may have lowered springs?) and did 1.04.2! Thats an awesome time for the mods.
              You need to take his mods with a grain of salt, he bull shitted and under played his modded widebody M140 tried to pass it off as a stocker, when reality he was running big power/LSD and super expensive suspension.

              Its a very respectable time but a better driver would do 3s with his set up.

                Just make a Facebook page and then you're a fully qualified engineer/fabricator.... that's the way it goes these days

                  So if you have ~70-80, do you buy an M2 or a Supra?

                              Outside of WB where he stated tyre width, it had common M front control/thrust arms, a tune that he eventually ran on 98 with a standard turbo, and YCW/MFactory (rofl) dampers. How is that expensive? Nothing ingenious nor bespoke. The sauce is in the M upright anyway. The LSD was a quaife, slightly inferior to BMWP. Both inferior to the electric diff in this car and F-series onwards M cars.
                              Apart from that, there's always a tenth isn't there?

                              Cyl head and fuel system capability for the Supra is better than the M140i. Supra seems to have slightly shorter ratios, not that it helps.

                                Doesn’t original M2 have the N55 (sounds the best but the least mod potential), M2C the S55 (sounds average but lots of easy power) from the M3/4 while the M140 and Supra have the B58?
