This thread is making me sad

But yes, right now the N54 is an expensive, high-ceiling, dyno queen. The 6AT eats it north of 600WHP or so (I'm too scared to try anything north of 23 pounds), the 6MT bogs, and the Dual Clutch is an unknown unless you throw $$$$$ at it.

It should be noted the 2J was in the exact same spot for far longer. The only platforms which go ham at the strip right away are Domestic big cubes, built GTRs, and built P Cars. Most of the German and JDM stuff takes a long time to get right.

The motor is ready, rest of the platform just isn't there yet. Such is life when we're the pioneers
