I have a Saab 9000 aero pressure plate sitting around that I used with my b230 back in the day if you have trouble finding it. I’ve been meaning to sell it for a while. Shoot me a PM if interested.

PDX to Detroit to Sisters today. Car is running great. A bit of traffic on 22 and 20, but we did find a few opportunities to loosen the reigns. Beautiful day.

Cleaned the T5 and M46 bellhousing. Throw-out bearing sleeve installed, new input and output seals installed, flywheel resurfaced, pressure plate on the way. STS driveshaft carrier bearing arrived. Custom crossmember on hand. Going to start with a cable set up. Will need to shorten front driveshaft and order a rear mount.

What am I forgetting?

Birthday next month / any shifter recommendations?

A Pro 5.0 shifter or a copy thereof would be my vote. The shift feel is awesome.

So far I am liking the Summit shifter (Steeda knockoff) better than the Hurst, despite not being as nicely made.

I use the stock one. It’s just fine for me and have had no issues.

I took harlard's recommendation and use the Summit shifter. I did get a different Hurst arm and custom weighted knob.

Culberro set me up with a sweet deal on a 3.73 ring and pinion.





To go with with the sweet deal that Harlard gave me on a clutch-type diff.





Should be a good match for the T5 ratios and allow me to go anywhere with the snow tires.
