Other than the obvious clutch, what other upgrades or extra maintenance should be considered to support a 23 or 25 psi tune on this car to drive it for 100,000 miles plus?

Maybe upgraded tires to handle the increased power.

^ I agree with all of the above. You could consider an oil cooler and RMM upgrade as well as you start to push it. All depends on what you want to do with the car.

How involved is a RMM install? Also, when do yours hit the market?

Super easy.
Remove the skid tray, remove 2 bolts, swap RMM and reverse order.
You would honestly spend more time removing the skid tray.

No current ETA yet but we are working on it.

I guess I figured changing mounts would mean the engine would need to be supported somehow. But that does sound easy!

I’m holding out on a RMM because I want yours! I’ll continue to be patient

:eek: 100,000+ miles with that tune in hot Florida? Crower connecting rods, 0W-40 synthetic oil changed every 3,000 miles, 91+ pump octane ethanol-free gasoline...

Good info. Long term I'm going to run a more conservative tune but learning about the needed maintenance for pushing the limit is helpful for someone getting into this hobby.
