Throwout bearing blew all it's ball barings out, then used the output shaft as a bearing wrecking it.

So since all apart for that and never liked the e36 tranny's gearing from day one (tried it with 3 different diff ratios 2:93, 3:45, 3:91) decided to go with a E30 tranny instead. Then the list got larger.... Then I wanted a single mass fly wheel, upgraded to a stronger clutch, new slave cylinder and while all is apart decided to due some overdue mainanence like change the guibo, centre support bearing, injector seals and well, now also have to change out the starter to go with my new flywheel, linkage ect...

Hopefully will be back together by the end of this weekend and see what #'s come out on that Dyno.

Single mass is only 5 lbs lighter 21lbs as opposed to the 26lbd duel mass, but with the single you have the option to shave it down to 18lbs, I didn't bother. Tranny went in like the stock one slightly easier actualy, only the 4 main bolts lighn up so less haseling to deal with while under tha car finding the new weird angles with an asortment of swivels and extensions, biggest PITA was the starter, had to remove the charger just to get to the wires, thinking linkage may be another PITA but only tried with e36 linkage but afraid to bend the aluminium rod to make it work, next I'll try with e30 linkage before I attempt to bend or should I say snap that alum rod.
