Harv666,

I don't like the wind noise of a targa. Also, the rain in Seattle can make you regret a leaky top.

The 3.2 has EFI while the 3.0 came with CIS (mechanical fuel injection). Also, the...

Your right, it's not a difficult repair. Remember to undo the shift coupler if your doing this.

This is probably the least effective upgrade for 915 shifting. I'm not saying it can't help, but...

Geronimo,

I would point out that the one item you're missing in your current config is a better cam. Since you already have the CIS replaced, you could now boost the HP by simply getting a more...

I've gotten back there without the partial engine drop and using a mirror on a wand. But I have small hands and gobs of patience. Back of my hands were shredded by the end.

Starting in reverse means you're already past the spring loaded click-stop and the available slop (left-right, forward-back) is greatly reduced from the amount when starting in neutral, so...

crazy997,

Just curious. Are you using 100s on the low beams too?
