    DBtuned(now FW motorsports) installed them in Roseville, Ca. I love them. Much better suited for the 2.5 displacement and the power i have put in. Additionally I get better gas mileage with them when on the freeway. They are much thicker than the bugeye gears. Tougher overall. I would consider this the best option if you cant afford a 6sp swap. I still dont think the 5mt should be taken much past 300whp, but this setup should add longevity in that power range. The price i paid may not apply to your application. My recommendation is to put in a quick call to Paul and ask him how much based on your application. He did my transmission in 2 days. Very fast.

    thanks very much. I'll be retuning in a couple of ways soon. A new 91 tune and a new E85 tune so I'll post those numbers. The car under the hood and inside is doing great. This next year i really need to do something about the external. Possibly looking to do a front lip, new front bumper.. not sure which style yet, a wheel swap and a different suspension approach(probably coilovers) suggestions?

    04/05 tails. Do you race the car? If not just go with struts/springs instead of coils or plan on spending 2k on the coils. OEM bumper with oem front lip and molded & paint matched chargespeed brake ducts. Silver RPF-1's

    o4/05 tails are definitely on the list... thanks for reminding me. Thanks for the other rec's thats a good look for sure. I do take the car to thunder hill and do circuit racing. I don't think im going to get the track ready setup with the ride quality i want unless i do something like the BC ER series coilovers.

    Welcome to another bugeyebrid owner. Looks like you have a very usable powerband; nicely done.

    Im also a fan of KYB GR-2s. RCE is a good spring choice though. That or swift springs

    You don't need our help lol. You obviously know what your doing and are modding in an educated manner
