    I haven’t mentioned the ecu dramas I had, fuel set up issues I had, tune issues I had. Oh and throttle body issues lol. I’ve gone through a few now and keep spares all the time. Tail shaft bolts going loose. Intank water pump dying. There is bunch of other issues too but being that I am one of few people in aus who has pushed the platform so far, there has been a lot of trial error. After years of throwing $$ at it, a few of us have figured out what works and doesn’t. Next year you will see a couple of TT C63’s on the street. I will most likely head down that route but not just yet.

            I would have dug a hole and buried it by now. You are a better man than I, Mr RNS-11Z.

                I also broke the diff, an axle and 2 rear cv’s. Shit the power steering pump doing a skid, broke 2 tensioners which destroyed pulleys and other shit in the engine bay. And probably a dozen o2 sensors because when you don’t drive it often they just die.

                    This thing is all sorts of automotive win!*

                    *From our perspective on the sidelines, your view might very well be different after all the time, breakages, pain & expenditure.

                        Protip: if you never drive them, they never die.

                        Come back to PF just to show love for this continuing to evolve and not beat you my man.

                          I like how you're aiming for a solid 1500hp! Is there a particular ET you're chasing too? Or just see what it does once it's all buttoned up? #streetcar

                              Came in here thinking "I wonder if he's thrown as much money at his repairing shit as I have with mine?"...

                              Oh.

                              Not so much a different ball game, more a case of a different sport. Do carry on.

                                Is this show still going? I thought it was cancelled on a cliffhanger after its fourth season.

                                Given the next C63 is a four cylinder you may end up winning here!
