LP570 UGRTT Owner Review
First the car - Full optioned car with sport buckets and ccb's.
After a couple of hundered miles since delivery, I can say that the car feels improved all the way around from my 08 SL.
Suspension, trans & motor are just more in unisen. There is a noticable level of improvement in bump absorption in the suspension
without loosing any steering feedback. It is a big jump in cost from the 08 to an 11 but I have no regrets at all!
Now for the real fun part; after talking to several GTT owners and reading endless threads and watching posted video's I decided
to send the car to UGR before ever taking delivery. I thought it would be easier since the car was coming from the west coast, essentially
passing N Carolina...well sort of
This all started with a simple suspension lowering and progressed to a Bolt on TT kit. I also have the boost by gear option and faster shift program.
I received the car a couple of weeks ago and have logged about 225 miles so far. For those of you that have never experienced one of these car, it kind of hard to sum it other than....HOLY HELL!!
From the smell of the richer exhaust, to the sound on the exhaust, turbo's & blow valves, it is just pure insanity. The car pulls so F'ng hard
and I've only used the 4LBS of boost setting. I let the service writter at my local Porsche dealer drive it. His hands were shaking with adreneline after his 5 minute stint behind the wheel, we laughed like two 10 yr olds in disbelief of how this car pulls!!
The quality of installation is fantastic, it looks like it came from the factory this way. The quick email/text reply's from Kevin during the process and even since receiving the car have been outstanding. Kevin also stepped up big time when they found the factory oil pump leaking before any work had started. He handled the entire part aquisition from Lambo Carolina
and did the install/swap for me at no charge. This saved the car from having to go to the dealer for them to pull the motor to do the oil pump swap!
All in all I am 100% satisfied with my decision to buy this car and send it to UGR. If yiou are reading this and have been considering this, all I can say is just do it, you will not regret it for a second!!

Can you hook the power without DRs? I ask because I don't see any from the pics.
Impressive if so! Congrats on the new set up.@Chris_Clabo

great write up!
I am so tempted to send the 570 to UG to do a stage 1 and enjoy it. Not looking to break records but just have a reliable extra 200-300whp on tap.
Thanks for the feedback may help me on my decision!
