      We can always bail on Todd for now and at least do Stage 2 vs. Stage 3? :P

      Hitting up any Thunderhill events in the near future? We could both do the AWD Dynojet their for cheap.

      I would steer clear of the Sachs 4-puck clutch. It's not the easiest to drive and makes some pretty horrible grinding noises during engagement at times. If I were to do it over again, I'd strongly...

      Do this ASAP. First pass compression test is fast and easy. If there are off results, then do a leak down.

      Understood, but am curious what is so challenging about it. Is it just not worth the effort since the applicable customer base is so small, or is there something unique about the hardware that makes...

      Darn, what is so tricky about the TT RS ECU?

      They could argue that, but I would have derived much enjoyment out of carefully measuring intake pressure (and more importantly temperature) on the APR-tuned car in my local conditions vs. a stock...
