Where did you get the Wynn's? Looking to be preventative on carbon buildup.

Why do you think you never see them on the roads? Because they broke down in the dealership parking lots. They're all in for service. LOL.

Not to mention the sticker price on that rolling pile is over $75k for the Quad, and if you want options, obviously higher. I'll take an M2 or used M3 for that.

I got it from a dealer in md, had to call quite a few people to get it. I think they typically do the service themselves.

To quote myself here, does anyone find it odd I took the temp sensor out and the car just idled up, but didn't studder or cut out?

ATS-V please.

Actually, for that I can get a Camaro ZL1/1LE.

Right now, (I did use the Wynn's, but not much seemed to come out frtom the exhaust) I'm having

1.Boost hitting about 25 in say 3rd, but each shift only spiking about 20.
2. Definitely some WG rattlesnake sounds at peak
High rpm misfires, bucking, cutting, whatever you'd call it (no VCDS, but also no dash codes).
3. Fuel mileage down to about 23-24 mpg per tank, so carbon buildup is a definite possibility.
4. A slight shudder at idle. Again, no codes, but I can feel it. Not severe though.

Plugs were just replaced with NGK BKR8EIX .023 about 2k miles or less.
R8 coil packs (20 ish k miles)
