        This summer man, I'm telling you. I can't get shit done because every weekend there's a wedding, reunion, birthday, (Edit: 600 babies,) etc.

          I had some junk to sift through and had most of everting laying around the shop.

          But there are as mentioned some that pop up on eBay. I assume once these kits take off they’ll become harder to find.

          Mk60 are getting hard to find.

            Hot damn, currently the cheapest ITB's are $775. Is that even a good price? I assume the waiting game isn't worth the few extra bucks saved. I am interested in this path, way down the line. But I should get a set before the lowest is over 1k.

              It’s cheaper to swap the whole motor.

                I got my S54 RRD ITB kit on.. Just trying to sort things out with tuners.
                Neat product. What engine is your kit going on? I was reading over the RRD product page, they said their exemplar S52 made 321whp@7500rpm. If that was its peak then surely they revved higher than that to find it was the peak. Because I am using the S52/M54 crank in my 3.0, I read into reliably revving the S52 that high. General consensus from people who did it was that you want the ATI crank damper if it's going to sustain those revs, and that chasing S54 numbers with an S52 would result in the S54 being the cheaper option in the end. With my 3.0, my priority shifted from wanting to rev out and shoot for numbers like the ones Nisse Jarnet puts down (for which a 2.8 may have been better because of the RPM) to wanting to see what I can put down down, and downsize the turbo if I find that I am not able to put enough power down to justify the lag of the S366.

                  I just swapped the whole motor though

                  I also have a M54 crank for my 3.0L. And I kept the narrow runners of the M52 because I wanted the torque lower. So maybe throwing ITB's on it would negate that benefit. I don't want to increase the redline.

                        Seeing my dad & taking him to Rainforest Cafe, and installing AC in my car, hopefully. I made some new brackets to hold the fan on the condenser, but there's a little more work left with mounting the condenser (the core support is gone). I should have the system ready for a fill by next week.
                        In the meantime, my dad will probably not enjoy driving in my car with this heatwave lol

                          Finishing the 3L bottom end I should have had done months ago, doing some paint chip repair, valvetrain condition assessment, tint removal, ZF310 shift detents...

                              Had to escape the heat over the weekend. Went up to Northern AZ and the North Rim to sleep in the cold.
