$US85 delivered, made out of T6 Billet, and comes with heaps of mounting stuff plus an extra set of extra firm springs. Shifts really nice too, barely have to move it half a cm and your in a gear. Cant work out what the screws are for that go in those two holes? one at the front, one at the back?? Any idea? they are a big threaded bolt that screws in..... see pic (sorry for the thread-jack)

I believe the extra screws would be to set max forward and backwards shift movement, so you don't force the synchros to far.

Took a photo of your dash yesterday, but my phone has been loosing photos somewhere... When I find them all I'll solve one of the mysteries of the universe -- Just how do digital photos and most of my right socks end up orbiting Neptune?...

AU springs are a lot smaller in diametre, and are longer. If you see them next to each other out of the car it is easy to see the differences.
