Today I got my car back from the shop. All revshift bushings. Pisinuoff shifter. McLeod RXT clutch with aluminum fly wheel. Kooks 1 7/8" headers, cat delete, corsa...

Sweet mother of Jesus. I fell in love with this car all over again. Everything is tight. Clutch chatters a little on occasion but it's great too. One thing about the shifter is I can now use the front lighter plug for my phone charger! And the exhaust... Oh my god the sound is a nice grumble at the low end, and a wicked raspy sound that' scares small children at wot. (Also scared my gf when I got home and reved it) it's amazing. Just wanted to share my excitement with you all.

Everything revshift had. Except the flex disc. The mechanic said it didn't work. Guessing he didn't go to RS web sight n read their instructions because I think I remember something about it being a floating tranny and you have to shim it or something? Gonna look it up later.

Car feels so tight now, bushings r amazing.And it's so loud at wot I'm worried I might get pulled over by every cop that sees me.

He has a thread on here. Long story short you PayPal him. He sends you a modified stock shifter. You replace it and send back your core... I haven't had another shifter to compare other than stock. But I like it. Also I can now use the plug that the shifter used to hit in 5th gear and reverse. Also pisnuoff's shifter is like half the cost of other shigters

Idk how to upload pics. Only got a couple. Here's the only vid I took from my crappy IPhone. Hope to make some more sometime. It really doesn't do it justice. When I drive I try to keep the Rs down because after about 3k it sounds like a race car and you can hear it for a long ways. Still not too loud in the car IMO

My revshift bushings just arrived saturday and the car goes to the shop wednesday to have them installed. I'll be doing everything in the rear end this time around, then when I get a few bucks set aside I'll get the motor mounts and trans bushing done when I finally get my b&b headers and exhaust installed. I can't wait!
