Rapid acceleration...but prob top out at about 120..gearchanges like fast n furious.
Quite expensive but cheap compared to engine rebuild.

Hmm that is tempting, but I think I'll stick to exedy ultra lightweight flywheel and stage 1 clutch for now, then the list goes on before I think about getting it rebuilt and ported! But I'll get these parts sorted before beginning of next year and then decide on the rebuild/how going to do it!
I've got a lightweight flywheel spare if you're in the market 8)
How much and what flywheel is it? :thumright:
