    If you have an absolutely unlimited budget, do not care about breaking stuff, do not care about devaluing the car by consistently tearing the car apart to fix that broken stuff, and do not care about waiting for long periods of time while this happens, go for it. Stuff will get broken. Virtually all of it will be eye-wateringly expensive, and you will be paying for it because your warranty will be voided. Also, make sure you and the guy doing the work come to an agreement on who foots the bill before hand. If you're good with all that, good luck, and let everyone know how it works out.

    If possible, I'd like to use this language in my next warranty case for a manufacturer.

    Probably everything. Valve covers, intake manifold, throttle body, dry sump, headers, turbos, turbo position, wastegate, exhaust layout are visible differences.

    Well put DBK.
    But when a new owner does dive into the deep water, be sure to let us know how it goes!

    It would be easier to buy a 3.5L and build it with a standalone ECU.
