Building a TT RS Motor
Having my engine built was a big choice for me. Not only is it a big expense but it also is a large undertaking. Logistics need to be taken into account on when and how it will happen. Your car will be out of service for a period of time. In addition, my engine was running great, I’d had no issues and things were kept on a “safe” level for torque. Open heart surgery is never something someone wants to go through and the same goes for removing a perfect running engine. At the same time I was making around 650 wheel horsepower and felt that my engine was being stressed even with the torque level being kept around 500 foot pounds. You also need to consider who you want to have build your engine. More on that in a future post. These were all factors I considered when making the decision to build.
Being a car buff I've heard of European delivery for years and years and looked into it a few times. I know not a lot of people have heard of it before. For those of you who haven't it goes like this: You purchase the car in the United States at your local dealer then you go to Europe to pick it up. You spec what you want on the car, the model, the color and the packages. Then you order it from the dealer and prior to going to Europe you pay for it. That can be financed normally or you can choose to pay cash. Each manufacturer has their own way of doing it but that is the general idea.
The Road to Sedona Arizona
Who likes road trips? I sure love them. I've always enjoyed the call of the open road. Just to drive and drive. There is so much to see in the great United States of America. I love traveling to Europe and other places are definitely on my bucket list but road trips across the country are also high on the priority.
