I had to look up what the hell an E46 M3 is! Do not want and if given one would trade for something else. Never been a BMW fan though.

Yeah, I've been looking. High mile ones go for about $10k. I want to buy one like that and give the engine a major overhaul/rebuild/clean whatever, make it like new so I can strap a supercharger to it with some sexy ITBs.

(This is why I call it an expensive mistake)

I never cared for them much either, but I like the way it looks for some reason. And there's something appealing about the engine and what I can do to it. Usually when I look at cars they're older and I want to change the engine, always number one thing. I just want to build the engine in an E46, though I'll probably end up with too much car for me and it'll look like the driver in Scientist's video worst nightmare.

I don't think ITBs will fit or work with a SC. Also building an engine is brutal. If you aren't positive on what you're getting into and have lots of time/money/space to work don't bother

I am told by my BMW buddy that the engine comes stock with ITBs and they bolt right to a supercharger for it. As for building/rebuilding/cleaning what have you, I'll bite the bullet on that and a shop will handle the complex stuff. My buddies and I equipped with wrenches can do simpler stuff. I'm not messing with the main thing that makes my car work though haha

Big ups to Guff
I actually didn't do any of that clean up. That was all @MannyO, one of our ninja mods. You're lucky he's a nice guy, because if it was me or ichi in a bad mood, or better yet, the boss man, you likely would have been hit with the hammer.

That being said, finding me in a bad mood is a rarity, so let's keep things civil and that won't change.

That NHL draft lottery was an exhilarating ride. So pumped that the Jets got the second pick. Really didn't think that they'd come away with the first pick, given that the leafs had such a better chance at it.

Though, an excited to see what the Leafs can do in the next couple years. Hopefully they don't turn into the next Edmonton and end up being a quagmire where top talent goes to rot.

I think I'm starting to get burned out from work again. Was doing fine for the past month but starting to hate it.

Probably because I'm getting more stuff put on my lap than anyone else at my level, with no extra compensation or possible future compensation.

Work less. You will feel better when you get the check and think you did almost nothing.
I feel great when doing so and most of the time i spend on forums during work time. No compensation? Sure i will work enough to avoid being fired and i will do less as much time i can.

Good point. They asked me to go straight 40 M-F a while back but its only for day time and I'll lose the 15% night bonus. If only they did M-F for nights...

Plus, I don't really like day shift anymore LOL
