you're going to spend more time shifting than in any one gear. First gear will be like a granny first in a pickup truck.

was debating spending the coin on a new set of ring and pinion for the ratios, yukon sells a 3.08 ratio i believe, or i was going to find a 240/740 with a m47/46 3.31 rear end and swap it out, that should definitely help

How does this conversion compare to say fitting a T5?

Nice! Especially since CBF performance apparently raised the pricing on their top mount: https://cbfperformance.net/#!/Billet...258/category=0

$650 now.

A T5 is a lot easier swap to do. If you're not planning on say... 350+ hp(???) then a T5 is probably a better idea.

The 6 speed CD009's ratios have a much wider range, it's not going to work all that well with a small turbo motor, better with a big lazy I6 or V8.

Yeah I'm kinda regretting it now, but at least I'm going to V8 swap at some point after the 8v kicks it so I don't feel as bad

No shifter from CBF as of yet, sounds about par for the course. Wish I had the spare cash to buy the alternative from autosportsengineering just so i could at least have it in my hands.

No he just had multiple excuses about parts being out of stock and endmills being broken etc etc, that is, when he decided to communicate at all...
