We didn't have to use the OBD I valve cover, that is what I was supplied with.

While RMP did your engine, did they happen to drop your tranny and fix the clutch issues you were having?

Yea man, no more clutch grinding! Plus the new clutch-stop that Rocco made for me is MUCH better also. He did a good job on my car.

The prevous shop that installed the manual tranny swap, let the clutch release fork grind in the flywheel and made a ghetto clutch stop that the clutch missed when being depressed, so I had to re adjust the clutch release fork, and make a proper clutch stop that the clutch pedal now actually hits.

I think that ghetto clutch stop was from me... .. Mitch had a clutch stop that didn't work, and I gave him a ghetto fix which for some reason his clutch pedal would slip on.. (works fine for me though). Glad you managed to build something more solid/proper for him.

Sounds like there was a lot of extra work involved.
