They are solid cars. Heck overbuilt in most cases. But they still have their issues.

They wanted to show that the launch control was something you can use all you want. Unlike other cars that after two or three launches the car would no do a launch control start due to heat.

With all the fluids and gaskets for all that, yes about $4k.

Valve cover fixed the issues I though I was having with the turbos.
