only reason why night mares is due to BTR in a 3 speed EA just not worth it as you need to do alot of wiring and custom rear box mount

this isn't a thread to discuss if you want a manual or 3 speed. Do it on your on thread.

3 speed = gay
4 speed = gay in N/A. Not sure what it'll be like with boost
5 speed = good for N/A. But won't handle high power or constant abuse

few more bits turned up for the SVO this week. Powerbond street series balancer, good for 6500-7000rpm. Fitted it that night, glad I have a compressor in my shed now.

And my Sonic turbo studs with inconnel nuts. Thanks to PSI-POP for picking them up for me.

detailed the engine bay the other night, motor is now ready to go back in. Then I gotta pay off my plenum ($300) then buy my surge tank and twin pumps ($700) and my Wolf V550 ECU ($2200)

Still a long way to got money wise. I'm thinking start of next year now.
