I just got my car back tonight from Cliffy's Classics with the new T5, hyd clutch and Pro 5.0 installed. Holy Spit! Is it a whole different driving experience! My little cruiser just woke up bigtime! Holy crap is it fun! Smooth smooth smooth. Man is it fun to shift. Did I mention it is more fun? I can't wait to get it on the highway with the overdrive.

Ken - THANK YOU for doing the work for me. I cannot thank you enough. I'd never get the time to do it. It's almost 2 AM and I'm still working.... sucks. Only another couple weeks of this.

Keith

Did you change the rear end? That will further widen the grin.

I went from the standard 2.8 to a 3.55 and it made a big difference along with the 5 speed. 3.25s should be good to.

Happy I could help you out Keith!

Cussing and Swearing aside, I had a great time installing all those goodies and even more fun test driving and delivering it!

Enjoy!

BTW, after feeling how smoooooooth that hydraulic clutch is, I might have to re-think my decision to run power brakes :p
