This is pretty cool, and the car looks, runs, smells, and feels new. Ok, maybe not smells..

Congrats on it holding together on you.

Any issues up to this point?

Hey David,

You can turn off the light for the rear o2 sensors with the Tuner. You do need working rear o2 sensors installed though. Give me a call and we can work on the rest of your tune.

See ya,

Any issues up to this point? [/B]


The issues that stand out are:
- four clutches
- 2nd gear syncros @ 30k
- motor mounts @ 60k

The tranny has always had issues; the motor still feels tight and fresh. I plan on installing a T-56 this spring.

Absolutely, positively the most fun I've ever had driving a vehicle.

What kinda signs tols you the motor mounts were gone?

Engine lean, lots of play, etc

I got 64+ on the clock and I want to know what to expect

THANKS!

The motor mounts experience was interesting. There was a particular bump in the road on the way to work each morning that if I happened to hit at the right angle and at the right speed would cause a loud clunk that I could hear and feel. I took the car to the dealer, who claimed that the motor mounts were fine.
At Jiffy Lube for an oil change, I went into the pit and examined everything myself; they looked ok. So I did the ol' "raise the hood set the parking brake and apply torque" method, and I could see the engine bouncing. Bought new mounts, had another shop install them, and the engine sat up about an inch and a half higher than it did before. No more clunk.
