Finally got around to installing the Mountune short shifter and full induction kit... I was expecting anything from the intake kit, but WOW, was I surprised when I took it out for a drive! My butt dyno said HELL YEAH!!! much improved throttle response and the turbo just comes in earlier and harder than ever. I also noticed a huge improvement in intake air temps. The hose that runs into the fender really helps keep the temps no higher than 10 degrees above ambient. Most of the time it was with 3 degrees which meant for the first time I saw charge air temps lower than ambient! This car just continues to amaze me!

I also installed the hydraulic hood strut from sico developments out of the UK. Great little kit that was easy to install.

Agreed .. I like how the shirt shift kit make the throw to Fifth gear a tad shorter at least it seems like that too me. As well as firming up the 1-2 shift ..

just a thought won't LC and FFS help with the dreaded bang ??
Hardest part of doing the short shift install is getting the bolt threaded up into the new block and getting it tight.. Make sure you have the right size allen wrenches before you start the job and small hands help. a ratchet allen wrench with a short reach helps getting the cap screw tight. otherwise it just takes time..
