I'd say if you get them few bits done you should be sorted.Strip anything thats not being used out of it.

So I got my exedy clutch fitted last night.the clutch that came out of it was genuine honda part and was completly gone.While I was at it I got a type r integra flywheel from a friend of mine it's 14lbs weight which is a nice saving over the standard one so that's on aswell.Ive also got my seats fitted which was I taught was the last of it.But on a bit of a test drive this morning I did this to my drive shaft.So I got on the phone and ordered 2 hasport drive shafts which should be plenty good enough I'm promised I'll have them Tuesday morning.All else fails I'll have to use a second hand one.

No def not welded.I must just be a hard driver.Have to say its my first time doing that to a drive shaft.The hasport ones are surposed to be stronger and there 2 times the price of some of the cheaper brands so I'm hoping there going to put up with a bit of stick.Wasent expecting to have to buy these now but better to break one at work than above in mondello.

So I'd my first track day out with this Friday.Had a brilliant day out with it the car went perfect all day I dident have to touch it.I was def lacking a bit of power compaired to some of the other cars but as for handling and brakes they worked perfect.I fitted my hasport shafts and I've also just picked up a type r LSD gearbox I'm not to sure on the ratio of it yet I'm told its a 4.7 but I'll wait to open it to find out for def so I'll fit that over the next few weeks.looking forward to the next day out.As for the lack of power problem I think I'll wait till this engine gives up the up and the. Fit a type r engine.
