Not quite. We're way beyond that. The correct thread synopsis is:
We've identified the majority of N54 issues that cause limp modes at the track, we're logging (for the first time ever AFAIK) actual water/oil and other data points for several after market solutions towards identifying configurations that would allow N54s (MTs and ATs) to successfully run on the track.
