Amazing write up. I'm not that mechanically inclined. So I will definitely live by your parts list when you post it. So I can give it to my mechanic before we dive into this project. Thanks again

Hi!

Have you any problems with the clutch bearing T-56? i installed my this week, the clutch works fine, but the new bearing sounds like a old rusty bearing, im not happy. But the SC drives much better with MT as with AT

Have you a picture of the bearing that you installed?

Thanks!

Tom

Boegry no no problems just with the clutch disks slipping under boost, i have even swaped to a kevlar 4 puck clutch and still doing so are you sure it's the bearing?? could it be the transmission,

So i have found some small things that but me a little about wireing to neutral with the turbo set up since the ecu thinks it's in neutral at all times it confuses it when it learns driving habbets it starts to lean out some times when letting out of the gas and go into neutral because while in gear and letting out of gas it kinda tracks back on its self while slowing down... So it's trying to do that while going into neutral then you rev it a little and it idles fine again so I'm trying to find first to wire to and experiment with that
