Re: Manual Converison Coming, Question???

Not the best. One has to really let the clutch out slowly etc with the 2.77 and if you're learning (as I was) it's very easy to stall. A cheap 3.08 or similar will solve the problem and is well worthwhile.

It's not that bad, like what was said just have to let the clutch out slowly. On the + side you only do 1650rpm down the hwy.

sif clutch out slowly..

The answer is ALWAYS more cookies.. Unless the cops are around, they can fine you for spinning the wheels etc..


Ohh, and how much $$ are you looking at to do everything but the actual box? Thats an interesting thing to do Usually the big $$ (labour-wise) is in putting the pedalbox in, anyway
