    you could try looking around Edina that might fight you not to far from MOA (mall of America) close to a lot of thing and good place to live. but that is my two cents about what you said

    Welcome Sid!

    Depending on what you're planning on doing for work, you might also want to check out south of the metro area for living. Lakeville, Northfield, etc.

    You'd be far enough outside the metro that you'd be able to get some land for the kids to have the fun toys like dirt bikes and snowmobiles.

    really anywhere outside the cities, though south and north seem to have the most. East runs you into wisconsin, and west is all farm.

    Have yet to visit. Have some friends from Jo-burg, and know several people go there frequently...
    Hope to visit in a few years when the kids are older.

    What color is your car?

    Also, is the piping part of an ASE kit? Or is it custom?

    I like the new setup better fwiw! ;)

    Edit: what kind of internals are you running on your block?
