" I think people have just become spoiled with all these recent big displacement motors. The M156 was a friggin big block for christ sakes...People are going to have to get ready for all the smaller displacement high revving FI motors that are going to become commonplace with all the EPA guidlines. "
I do NOT want a 4.0 liter engine. I want a 5.5 liter engine.
If I wanted a 4.0 TT, I would have bought the S6.
AMG can shove this M177 in a chick car.
Give me the M157 in a lightweight C63 with 4matic and a DCT.
" Do you have any idea how simple it is to remove the ECU from the M157 ? It's located right on top of the motor and literally takes a couple minutes to remove. I agree the handheld tuner is great, but if you want a tune right away, pop yours out and send it to Weistec "
" Most of these reports are just speculation. Considering the C has always had a detuned version of it's bigger brother the E class, I seriously doubt it will have the same power. And I doubt it will get the M157. Many of the early reports are calling for a 4.0L TT V8. It'd be awesome if it got the M157 and AWD but I think that's just wishful thinking. "
I think that led to part of the confusion here. People see banned and think OMG he's Stalin. Just by default VB uses "banned" for anything from an hour to permanent.
Luke, I will be doing something about it as I told you in a PM right? I literally got back from a business trip and have been catching up. I have a whole ton of users asking for things plus this on top. It's stressful.
I've never used the "Break/vacation" just the default VB setting which puts banned even for temp bans. But if this bothers you, check again, now changed. Happy?
When I see the word banned I read "permanent". If that was/is not the case then my bad. I really don't have a dog in this fight other than "banning" the wrong person(s) and you know who I'm talking about. I've received threats too and you don't seem to do much about it... "
They don't. It's called timeout. He needed a break.
Under his (LM's) avatar/screenname it says, "BANNED". Whereas when others get a "Break/vacation" they're rep is just in the negative. Seems like two totally different things to me. But whatever, obviously there is more to it and it seems you two have been having some heated discussions offline.
Carry on. "
