        Steve @ promuffler did mine (2.5in piping + labor) for $80. I provided magnaflow muffler and resonator. I haven't found anyone who cuts better deals!

            I can get a solid 30mpg with my m42... going 60mph on the freeway!

            Otherwise 27-28.

                Put an S3.25 in, it will help! Or an S3.46.

                  I miss my eta for how nice it was to drive around town. Loved the MPG's. I know they don't compare with alot of other cars out there but the difference between ix to eta is pretty noticeable.

                    I got a consistent 23 with my 4.44 diff, chip, and the 225/50s.

                    I get the same in the new wagon.

                            Can I come watch? I need to do a headgasket on my GF's car and have never worked on an M42 before. I also want to know how to delete all the throttle body heater stuff while it is all apart

                                Haha, fair enough. I'm sure it would beat an Eta though!
