Hybrid stuff is pretty good the only thing I don't like I the bolts that come with the shifter box are cheap crap and started to rust already! As for sump clearance it is only just below the front towing eyes so not that bad. Do your research on parts and find out which ones will Work with your budget, a word of warning it is not cheap lol

How do you find the shifter box itself when fitted?
Much play when in gears? And how do shifts feel?
Dose there race manifold hang low at all?
Thanks for the info mate! Trying to take in who's using what parts and what they think of them but it's abit confusing haha. Yeahh iv realised it's not that cheap :/
Hoping it will be worth it when done though!

I have the shifter box and cables, you get stiffer springs for the box. There is no oil in the box at the min but then shifting it feels firm and solid I'll let you know more when I get it on the road. I haven't fitted the manifold yet but I'll post up pics etc when it's done.

Mega mate.

Some amount of work there.

So wish I had the space to get stuck into stuff like that.

I know I would hate to count up the hours and late night's I spent on the car. I am renting a lockup to do all the Work not. The cheapest way but had no other option.
