Depends on the cost :)

I saw your video on the PTU, btw.

Do we know if there is anything in the works somewhere to beef up/upgrade it?

Thanks
You can have all the gears WPC treated. Me personally, I think it is pretty stout, just need to change the gear oil often, like every other oil change and I think it’ll last nearly forever. I did add a PTU brace @aaron240 sells. FEA37C4C 8219 4456 B05D 37385F08494490F63DFC 3183 4556 A84B 948ADBD6638D90A107EE 5422 4F25 BAAE 59FCB2C4655B

I think the Traction Concepts LSD will put a little more stress on it as it’ll temporarily lock up the front diff, sending power to the passenger front more than ever. I like the brace as added insurance.

I didn't even know we have a LSD for this car.

So basically...LSD, WPC treated Gears new PTU with drain plug, and a brace.

Where did you get WPC gears and I anyone doing this with our trans?

I'm sure I can find out via search, but where did you acquire the PTU run drain plug?

Thanks for the help

Ppl have WPC treated transmission parts as well. I didn’t get my new PTU gears WPC treated it’s just a new unit with a brace. You’d need to reach out to WPC I think that’s also the business name or company.

I installed the TC LSD myself and the internal parts getting WPC you’d need to send out or have your trans removed and those things installed/treated while it was apart. Or buy another trans and have that done to it, then swap them and have a back up trans.

Either way it’s a lot to take on and do. I bought another trans out of a 2014 with 61k, opened that one up, replaced the internal trans filter, put a new solenoid body filter on it, new shaft seal, ptu side has its own shaft seal which came with the new PTU, and I am just going to send it. I have my original 2010 trans with 76k miles to build when actual upgrades are available. Or it’ll just be send it and replace, send it, replace lol. I got the drain plugs from

If you are interested in the PTU brace feel free to reach out, I still have 8 kits in stock. I do also have a company website with additional SHO performance parts available for sale, but every time I share it i get flagged and the post gets taken down. PM for more information if you are interested or if i can help with your build in anyway!

I'll be reaching out to a couple places to get an idea of where to go forward from here.

I reached out to Aaron and I'll give him a call today.

You are a bad influence.

Today I went through the car wash and I rolled my window down "just a little bit" during the jet dry. It was pretty extreme and I know how extreme jets can be.

My daughter was not amused.
I do that with my six year old daughter. She isn't amused either, I think it is hilarious.

Front and Rear LSD are ordered and should be on their way to Aaron soon.

Any leads on the turbos from GH?
Try TurboBay. No backorders he only uses housing, all other parts are replaced with new OEM. And price is very good for what he does. You have to call as our platform isnt listed. Owner knows his stuff. It's a pleasure to talk to him.q

How do CR turbos matchup?

I'm under the impression that GH does the exhaust side as well. I'm not sure how thorough the other shops are.
I was turned away from CR when they informed me they only do upgrade on wheels but do not replace wastegates or anything else with new. TurboBay give you an all brand new turbo.

CR uses brand new turbos if you choose that option, or they can use yours if you want to send them to Canada. We sell lots of them, and while they don't replace the wastegates they are tested and verified, and if bad they will replace them. I would recommend upgrading to TurboSmart wastegates though.

We have them on the site here:
