Hey 3rdcoast; I know you said a downtown run, but If you're willing to travel?

There is a chance to set the new world record in Mackinac 2017!!!!!

Yeah, I love mine so far. I am a little particular, so I am going to end up modifying things quite a bit.

C00per99 - I was wondering if you might be interested in an exhaust for the F56. It came off of my F56 JCW. I believe it is a decent upgrade for an F56 S.

Thanks, but I have the 1.5, so the exhaust is setup differently. I am actually thinking of trying to just delete the muffler altogether. I have a lot of ideas on where I want to take this build. I was actually very surprised at how much I enjoyed the B38 engine.

I started with the Justa. I believe that is a good route for the exhaust. I even read where someone actually went straight pipe. I did an intake and the Dinan Sport to give my Justa a little extra. Very enjoyable to hear the turbo and the electronic BOV. I would also do the Craven Speed Big Pair. I actually have the stock JCW springs and RSB if you are interested.

I am actually planning bc coilovers, the big pair, an nm rear sway bar, adjustable end links and 5 mm spacers (I like the stock rims and don't really feel like buying new ones, but need the clearance).
