I think the gearbox has seen over 250 laps of the 'Ring, maybe close to 300? It's a durable beast!!

Congrats on your new beast !

Did you do all that hardcore ring and autobahn testing with your previous flash tune or the proceede ?
I have an auto tranny myself and am corcerned about it's durability.

Fwiw I am in line for RB turbos and will tune it thru a custom jb3 map.

Thanks and drive safe.
If your car isn't scary - it's just not fast enough !
