Ok.. FM1 clutch and flywheel installed. cant believe how much difference it makes, pilot bearing was going out...

here are the differences that I have noticed so far. I do have to push the clutch pedal closer to the floor to shift gears, quite a bit further actually but this is stated clearly to be one of the changes so all gud..

Now the flywheel has made a difference in the rev's. I do have to rev a little higher to maintain the same speed thru 1st 2nd and 3rd. not really noticeable in fourth, but very noticeable 1st to 2nd.

I am happy with it tho.

thanks for the advice

roll in under the dash and adjust the clutch, IIRC you need a 10mm open end wrench.

Warning - turbo's are addictive. You will probably want more boost before long.
