Not to bad! Keep us up to date! Have fun with all the oil changes. I got my exhaust installed but think I'll be swapping it for a nameless piece. It has far to much drone on the hatch. =\

Oh yeah, the new clutch is going to take some time to get used to. Hopefully it breaks in a little and gets slightly easier. The issues really show at red lights and fast gear changes. If I don't floor the clutch then it is real hard to shift. I think my old clutch was really worn in where I hardly had to push the clutch down to shift.

This one just catches faster and doesn't slip as much. You will get used to it

I've heard that you can adjust the linkage of the clutch rod. I've never checked on my own car, but if you can, I would recommend to lengthen the rod just a little which would require less pedal travel to press in the pressure plate and disengage the clutch.

Also just make sure the clutch system is bled real well. If there is air in the system, it will take more pedal travel to disengage the clutch.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks! Hopefully with a few days in I will get used to where it engages etc. I think right now it is too soon to say there is a mechanical issue. I trust that Bertune knows what he is doing when he put it all back together. The new clutch is capable of holding 550+ tq so I'm sure the feel is going to be very different.

At least my left leg will get a workout without me having to work it out at a gym.

Getting ready to break down my old block. Need to pick up a few bits and tools. Currently my block is sitting on my garage counter with the oil pan on and it is making a mess. I would like to have all the parts broken down and cleaned for storage. Probably take a piston and rod for paper weights at the office

I have a Ferrari piston and rod for a paper weight. They work awesome and look really cool. Just get it all cleaned up first.

Go to www.smyclustermaker.com. Go to the store tab and then exterior. $260-front lip, $260-side skirts, $95-Back lip. Good quality for good price. I won't feel bad when these take a beating.

Who's diffuser?? Link? I might just do the exhaust protectors. But I'm worried that will not look good either.
