Plus Steeda just released their tune and intake for it, +25whp which should equal about +35 crank hp given the dyno numbers they've shown me over email. So 300hp AWD fusion? Lower it and get bigger sways, and some sticky rubber, should be a fun cruiser.

Then save $$$ for a play car, currently thinking mazdaspeed miata, or maybe E30, and lots of mods.

Disclaimer* This is all "hypothetical", hah.

e30s make awesome toy cars I've got sort of a fetish going for them right now!

I've still got a line on a stupid clean e30 m3 that I'm "hoping" will be quite cheap....

What's stupid cheap, because e30 M3s are not...

Also, note this:

(Not to be done to an M3 in my opinion, but a reg. e30:
