It is VERY close to how I want it! Only thing missing is a Turbo and a nekkid maid who is as picky as me to wash and polish my car once a week for me!

Enjoy the power Mitch! I guess you're joining the "can't stop smiling" club! Btw, I want to do photoshoot of your car and Sanj's.

Sounds like there was a lot of extra work involved.
Yea that one was from Justin... You should have seen the one b4!

Justin's was actually working to a point then the grinding would take over at times when shifting hard. It would have been better if it had a bigger (wider) stopper so the clutch would not miss it at times. No biggie I'm just glad it's fixed!

Yup, I'm thinking maybe welding a washer along the top would've worked.
I've never had mine slip before... my clutch pedal has absolutely no play to it, not sure if it's supposed to be like that though.

You should see my facial expressions when I gun the car now! It's a nice smile on my face... Then a giggle... then more laughter... then phychotic laughter.... then I scare myself and stop laughing.

It's fast enough for this year tho... I just want to get used to the power for now then next year will be a whole different power output, maybe to the point where I might scare myself!

I'm not sure either... I assume it shouldn't... I bought my clutch and brake pedal for the swap used so maybe that has some reason to maybe why it has a tiny bit of play to it. It's not that bad at all... just went past the tiny head of the screw (clutchstop) that you gave me.

I installed an E46 motor in an E30 does that count? LOL



I can do any swap basically, maybe a Chevy V8 in your E46?\

I read somewhere that it's much easier to swap the ls1 in an e36 than it is in an e46 due to the wiring/computer
