Sure- They failed rebuilding the rear so they got a junkyard one. During the swap they either purposefully kept or did not remember to swap over my BMR stubs. Foolishly, I did not check their work and only now (3 years later) realized they were missing when removing the diff again. They do not treat customer cars well in general. This situation was only the tip of the iceberg.i would like to hear the story about what the shop said re: your axle stubs.
Happy to give you a brief overview. Back in 2011 I wanted a 600+ RWHP car for under 50k and the GTO fit the bill. I had looked around at multiple TT cars and this one showed up on Ebay. I won the car and picked it up in GA. It was ordered by a guy who had all his other toys (including other TT Lingenfelter cars) seized by the IRS. The previous owner to me picked it up at auction and I got it from him because he said it 'terrified him' haha. The car had been neglected and needed a lot of TLC, but being a Lingenfelter, the build quality and engineering were superb. I've spent quite a bit bringing it back to spec. Everything from a new custom aluminum radiator, Cometic head gaskets, intakes, RPM level 6 TR-6060, and innumerable other upgrades and repairs (and now the differential) has been the order of the day. The car was verified by a former salesman at Lingenfelter who took the order for the car. He relayed that there was only one other TT built, but this one was the prototype. Here is a link to an old discussion thread I found: Twin Turbos - by Lingenfelter . The original owner and the salesperson both are in the discussion. Lingenfelter supplied me with the build sheets and you can see 'LPE' stamped on the deck of the block so it's ostensibly the same car. Some interesting highlights on the car: BMR carbon fiber drivershaft, half shafts, frame connectors and strut tower bar. It has a $6k custom stereo system, autometer gages with boost, FP, OP, OT, and WT. Interior is blue. Also included are LPE HRE forged wheels and the Harrop's 4 piston monster brake setup.I'm interested in the story of 1 of 2 Lingenfelter twin turbo 427 GTO!
