And the FM clutch in the red 2000. Everyone who drove either of those cars hated the clutch. I installed neither of them.

The point is, i'm sure they're awesome and lots of people like them.

I don't feel like paying that money and chancing hating it again and having to do the job a second time.

And they don't make 1.6 clutch anyways, so why are we talking about them?

and this was the FM clutch and not the ACT clutches they used to sell?

the FMI and FMII are two of the best clutches I've driven on.

FM1 in both cases.

Both clutches had an engagement point the length of Texas.

I've heard great things about the FM2, but that seems silly for an n/a BP4W.

And again... it's not 1.6, so i really don't care about FM clutches in general right now.

I'd like to point out that Ryan_G is borrowing the mounts. I'm not reinstalling them so they will be for sale if he decides to pass on them.

I feel that it is far more likely that I will just buy them unless they rattle me to death. Especially now that I have a secondary vehicle in case I need to transport someone who is less forgiving.

Yes. Supposedly a small power bump and will play nice as a stopgap if i get a BP5A cam. Also the car the ECU came from had a 4-2-1 exhaust manifold that probably flows better than the stock garbage we got here, so it'll go nicely with the RB header i'll be ordering in the next week or two.

And no emissions, so i can remove that **** even before i go Megasquirt.

And because no emissions, i can remove the cat that PO said was bad and causing CELs (though i haven't seen one yet) and not care. Bonus for not having to buy my midpipe twice.

It's a stopgap that while may seem silly in light of going megasquirt eventually anyways, allows me to steam forward with a few things in the meantime and not spend my money twice elsewhere. Me gusta.

PM me a price for your terrible bar that will likely make my car slower and quite possibly blow up in a fireball. I'll consider it cause I pity you for owning it.

It wasn't really a tactic. I just want details and price.

I kindof feel like that swaybar is too hairy-chested for me. :(
