    Nah, it will smooth out once you get around 1k on it, it's a hard face clutch so it takes longer to bed the clutch in.
    About two months ago I removed the tranny to fix a nasty tranny oil leak that developed (sealer didn't do it's job).
    I added Royal purple 75W-90 (50%) with 75W-140 (50%) gear oil which gives an end viscosity of 110 and so far the gear noise at low speeds it's nearly zero and the box feels smoother (except for the clutch disc rattle).

    Do you guys have issues with gear noises at low speeds (5-20mph)? like a whinning sound or clatter kinda hard to explain.

    Once its up and running, let me know if the SPEC 3+ rattles your gearbox to death and how do you like the feel of the clutch.
    At first mine was pretty harsh (jumpy) when you let the clutch out and now it's smooth and feels like a stock clutch but with one heck of a bite
    Nice project, keep up the good work..

    The sad part about project Pras is that we won't be able to see the work with our own eyes. Sometimes pics don't do a car justice in order to appreciate the work that has gone into it. I've seen this before on other projects.
    Based on his write up, I expected worse, but it came out pretty decent IMO, I give him a for creativity.

    I must agree with Johann, the previous color looked amazing on his car.

    Well, I think it looks good but I've never been/will be a fan of the color "RED", not to forget yellow
    Too each's own.


    Dang Pras, I see that your dental cleaning work hasn't been the greatest. Know wonder your leaving LA to India

    Dang Pras, I feel ur pain.
    A bit of advise for any member on this forum that tries to under take a detailed project like the few of us have done or are doing, at some point it becomes a nightmare, so please, do your research and budget accordingly.
    I had my share of issues which you're well aware of but I wont get into that since we are chatting about your project.

    I heard that you also decided to changed the color, WHY???? it looked so pimp before IMO.
    The only thing I can say is that I hope the end results make you happy or satisfied. I'm sure Aaron will get the motor figured out but you will never get your $$ worth out of the car, might as well keep it for a while or until you return.

    Too bad you live far from me because I would of given you a helping hand, now post pics and quit ranting
