Gearbox parts have arrived, Mfactory plate LSD, close ratio 3,4,5 and 4.05 FD. Also had a bigger rear arb made and dropped the ride height a bit more.

Over three years since I've last checked this build :lol: Have to say that's one amazing little metro. What's the figures now with the better breathing?

219bhp, currently building the gearbox. It turns out it actually had a gearbox from an SiR so I'm changing 2nd gear to match the type R and fitting the Mfactory close ratio 3rd, 4th and 5th with carbon synchros and plate LSD.

Not much of an update but I was never 100% sure on the current shifter and position so I bought some type R linkages and cut them in half (they're about a foot too long). Also bought a K tuned shifter.

Dude, that's sick. In the most positive of ways. Got an LSD tranny?

I used an EP3 gearbox with an Accord 4.38 fd, with the 13" wheels this give me the equivalent of a 5.0 fd. I put an Mfactory plate LSD in this too :)
