DrD, thanks for your input. I will make the change to mid-2002. I didn't research the year well enough, but I knew they put in the valve. As to the synchro issue, I wrote SOA as I didn't see 100% proof on my limited searching about the synchro issue and will update my post with their response.
Chuck H, thanks for your input. You are 100% correct. From someone who is obviously in the know, I understand what you are saying. This FAQ is catered to new people though and I don't want to get into that can of worms. Double clutching and rev matching is fine, but recommending it is for the more advanced in my opinion though. Personally, I can heel/toe rev match like Niki Lauda, but my double clutch is a struggle. I don't possess enough ryhthm.
