I went with the Tusk kit from RMATV

It looked like folks had good luck with those kits. I've heard good things about the EBC's that Steve mentioned also.

fyi, I ordered the gaskets from a different source, including that little O ring like JT mentions.

Make sure to order and replace the o-ring for the oil pump to side cover fitting.

Another confirmation that I have a worn clutch, thanks!

Can't shift into neutral when at a stop?? Just hit neutral as your rolling to that stop. Geezzzz. Rocket science this ain't.

Now if, and ONLY if, the TARSC ( total advance/retard setting change ) was 4.732 deg. NOW you would have something to brag about. Simply put 4.65 is insufficient.

The hot set-up!

I invented that set up. But its out of date.. I slotted my engine mounts and advanced the c/s along with the engine, cam , and ignition timing.. Top that mother fuckers
