not really true, or at least there are a lot of caveats in that statement.

Anything decently quick?

440+awhp in a TT V6 is nothing to laugh at. With the right turbos it'll make power everywhere.

because more displacement is not created in a vacuum. First you have to assume that the two engines have exactly the same tech. It doesn't take a laFerrari to have a tech advantage over an old, big block chevy. Then you have to assume that both engines are going to have the same weight and size so they can be positioned to not upset the weight balance of the the car. Then you have to assume that in the course of increasing the displacement of a given block you have not made the walls too thin, thus making it less durable. And so on.

That V6 can probably get half-decent fuel economy, though.

Normally I'd be all up for this but I'm on my phone. We were discussing a turbo LT1 vs a turbo Cadillac. Turbo LT1 > TT Cadillac

I guess we'll see with the new lt1, but technology is allowing v8's to get much better city gas mileage than before.

They paid for everything. The **** is amazing. Dirt like fly off my car. On hte highway, water marble/bubbles fly off my hood and launch of my windshield, and right after going through a car wash, it looks freshly buffed.

A syringe of it costs around $60, and that's enough to do 2 cars. It's not hard to do, but you have to prep the car very through beforehand or it won't stick

250 is expensive, I usually see pricing around $200

It's a lot better protection than wax or sealant, plus it lasts years, not months

But a clear bra would be preferable, no? It seems Detailers Domain does them in liu of clear bra, which I thought would provide better protection?
