Re: Dammit, My Clutch Went Out!!

Aw crap, you're right - they are cheaper from Sonnen. But, I already ordered from Warehouse33auto.com. Ended up being $440 from Warehouse33 with free shipping (that was the best price I found, but didn't think to check Sonnen). With shipping Sonnen was a little over $400, so I could have saved $40....

Re: Dammit, My Clutch Went Out!!

Re: GD AOS!

Great comments. The smoke started as I exited the freeway a half mile from the house. It was so bad that the Bond smokescreen was the first thought that popped into my head! The burnout out is even better. :lol: I’ll start a write up on the replacement. There are quite a few write ups out there, so ...

Thanks! I have enjoyed most of this project. All the information available on the web made this job fairly straight forward. I referred to a DIY thread on Rennlist (dammit) and picked up little nuggets that helped with struggles.

Re: DIY IMS Solution Install

I need to finish this thread up. I finished it last weekend, but doing this install 98% myself on the garage floor wore me out. I have been driving it every day since and nothing has exploded so far.
