    Whooohoo, she feels good.

    I'm very glad I went stroker. the added torque down low feels really really really good.
    the car is just punchy, before it was squishy.

    I'm real happy with the feel of it NA, and it's at about the same HP!


    wiped the car down last night, put on the hood and new head lights (sucked)
    and took her for a spin. not to far, but wow it feels good. :)


    I gotta get the dang clutch adjusted or something. It grabs really abruptly.
    I'm not sure if its out of adjustment or what, but it's not normal.
    and if I let off without reving the throttle, it shakes like hell.

    anyone know if it's an adjustment thing?

    if the adjuster is stock you pull up on the clutch pedal then push it down. its "self adjusting" . Is it grabbing right off the floor? by the sounds of it it sounds like something is wrong with the clutch if it grabs all of a sudden and shakes/chatters. hopefully your luck is better than mine has been :(

    don't spec clutches need to be broken in for a few hundred miles and then they stop "chattering"

    sweet man, my clutch grabs right of the floor also, but it is getting better as it gets broken in.

    Which clutch do you have?


    It feels a bit better today. It's loosening up.
    I had Heath take it for a spin, he says break in...
    the clutch and shifter are tight, and it grabs pretty agressive.
    So i guess i need to break it in! my tags are expired, I gotta get that crap done, and then find a good paint shop.


    I'm wondering if the Spec 3+ is more of a drag setup, made to dump more than be smooth??
