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

Sorry guys i haven't been on here for a while... Stretch the first post on here is a parts list with detailed descriptions... Old man tan will have better videos soon... 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

HI everyone havent been on here in a while... but i have since figured out what was wrong with the clutch... i had found that the pressur plate that i used couldnt hold the under boost... so since then i went with a kevlar 4 puck 3sgte clutch that is rated for 900 whp supposedly but it is holding great and i had a little air in the clutch now i have vacuum blead the sys and now it feels awsome im getting a better tune and bigger injectors soon so now we will be able to test the trans and clutch soon

I'm in the middle of swapping my trans right now. I'm wondering, does the speedometer sensor from the auto work on the w58? Is there an adapter or something I need? Or can you just not have a working speedometer if it's manual swapped?
