    With the front outside wheel loaded and the rear inside wheel lifting, I would be concerned at those speeds. The weight transfer rear to front is overwhelming on any front engine car under braking,...

    Yes I did. Don't know what happened. Audis are OK up to 7/10th. After that, they become infuriating then scary for me.

    Welder must have been a zombie. That would explain those welds.

    Just had to be in other markets outside the USA for the DCT in the E90 with N55.


    I hope terminal oversteer with Audi's FWD architecture is also calling your name.

    Then there is the...

    Especially the N55 as intake valves are 1mm larger in diameter and head cooling is so much better than the N54. Better crankcase oil vapor control and crankcase pressure wave control also. S55...

    In the USA, only with the E92 335is with the N54.

    In the rest of the world, N55 with DCT was mostly available in post LCI E9x.

    Early N55 were 256 bit encrypted. The DME after that are 1024 bit RSA encrypted. It's like supersonic flight vs. warp drive. Much more difficult on the latter.

    I wonder if bench flashing these...

    Like which ones?

    Take the N series. There are almost no interchangeable parts between the N20, N26, N52, N54 and N55. Each N5x engine has a unique block, head and pistons from the other in the...
  12. What is economics?

    More likely there is very little money in it, especially when it will be costly to get it federalized.

    Right on point. Nothing is shared after the catalytic converters.

    1024 bit RSA encryption is a real tough nut. Previous DME were only 256 bit encrypted.

    Cobb has not quit trying to break the 1024 bit RSA encryption, but unless they do, there will be no more...

    Weight penalty for the 4 GC is about 165 lb. over the coupe. It doesn't make sense.

    Also, as I recall, the M4 and M3 are made in separate factories according to at least one source.

    Wonder if this can be done for the N55 head? Intake is already 1 mm larger than N54 head.

    Truly amazing workmanship. I wonder how it will drive though and what the torsional rigidity of the chassis is?

    Yeah because I also drive around all day at 6K RPM to 8.5K RPM!

    I would say no thought about real world driving experience is evident in that post. He prefers the S65 and its dismal fuel...

    Respected by the lame and mentally feeble, perhaps. If he doesn't like it, then he shouldn't buy one. Neither should he actually test one by obtaining quantitative data, which he did not.

    Well, the fenders do look a little more flared, so maybe we will get some real rubber and brakes. S55 is damn nice, but a 385 HP N55 with DCT would suffice for me.

    In 3 years, we might have a...
