I've got an extra gear!!
My T5 conversion was successfully completed yesterday!
It's made the car SOOOO much nicer to drive. Much smoother and more fun.
It's also getting heaps more power to the ground. It pulls like a freight train now! In first gear doing about 30k's if I floor it, it quite easily spins the rears.
Just have a two things left to figure out. Firstly, I have to get the reverse lights working, which'll be easy, just can be bothered at the moment.
Secondly, I am running an EA 5spd MPFI ECU, car idles/runs/drives fine, but the A/C compressor won't engage. I can hear the climate control unit click (which it does then the compressor engages), but the compressor doesn't come on. Will I have to alter the main loom to the ECU or is there an easier way out?
I also think my diff or unis are a bit sad, when I take off I get a little clunk just as I let the clutch and also when I change gears or back off then accelerate again. What do you guys think?
