Re: Questions about Partial Rebuild

Re: Questions about Partial Rebuild

You mentioned turbos and such so I assume this won't be driven too gently?

You may want to start out right now with a beefier clutch - stock will slip with very little modification to the car...

Re: Questions about Partial Rebuild

Re: Questions about Partial Rebuild
