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

oh, side effect.. the speedometer cable got shifted somehow and ended up on a tube coming from underneath the manifold cover. Melted a hole in it. no speedo.. called em back and they said they would order it and fix it no charge. nice huh, didnt even ask to see it..lol

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.
