    I hear you. But at the end, like it or not you are gonna get involved in BS.
    If you go with ESS, you will be really close to the source of BS.
    If you go with other kits (AA, G-Power, VF), fanboys (mostly ESS fanboys) will drag you into BS by questioning your kit.
    If you go with Gintani, same as above will happen but much harder.

    S65 FI scene is the BS.
    needs turbo.

    VF has their own in-house tuners. If I felt i needed/wanted custom tuning, VAC would be able to accomodate and be the intermediary since they have equipment/dyno ect

    all i see is a lack of turbos Click here to enlarge

    vf has traditionally been quite poor at supporting and developing their e36 stuff

    Should definitely be renamed and let's all not forget ESS claimed 600 whp through the stock exhaust on pump gas at one time... why everyone forgets this I have no idea.

    In a boat with American build quality and no dual clutch.

    Sure, it's cheaper and all that but nobody choose to modify M3's because it's cheap or easy.

    is my car heavy yes, boat..no...if so then the CLS63 and M5 are boats, and as far as american build quality, my cts-v is made pretty damn well...so what if its easy engineering...all you will see is the rear end of my car for all that engineering you speak of Click here to enlarge...i dont mind taking the easy road to make big power...id take a TT Ford GT over a UGR lambo all day....the lambo will never win

    I agree with everything except the GT over the UGR lambo? Its probably the car who gets the closest but in what do you think the lambo will never win. And I dont think sticky meant the reliability of the V just the build quality, in other words its not that it will break down or things will break but it just doesn't seem as well built(thats the reason I didn't buy the V)

    as far as straightline perfermance i dont think UGR has anything that comes close to as fast as a TT Ford GT...just look at the texas mile official stats

    253mph for the TT GT
    243mph for the UGR

    if im wrong please correct me...and as far as build qulity my V was built pretty damn good....better than my old 335 vert I can say that.

    Yeah but thats the only catagory where its faster. off the line and on the highway the lambo's are tops, the GT's are amazing but I wouldn't go so far as to say they dominate the Lambo's. Besides looks wise its not even close!

    off the line maybe...on the highway no way....it would be like running a mile from a roll...the GT would walk the lmabo...as far as looks go...i dont really care....im more of a function over form kind of guy...hence the reason i bought a V and not an M5
