Well that all depends on how you look at things. It certainly appears in most cases that a TT is less expensive to mod, but IMO (and I have done this) an NA engine has so much potential since at the end of the day you can go for a stroker engine or switch to low compression cylinders and TT the car. I bought a custom made TTV8 from AMG that makes 700bhp and similar torque.

The performance ones seem to be lighter : around 24,5 kg each one (54,4 lbs).But from a German catalogue it seems that they declare only 3 kg less (6,6lbs) for each seating. I think we need an help for the translation from a German friend...:-)
If the weight saving are similer to these that would be super great!!!!! Thanks for posting and hope SOUTH can give is a hand here
