    It is where it needs to be based on angle finders, but you're right solids would. Likely shift it up. Not going to bother with that until it's going again though.

    Hydraulics are complete.
    Need to get my driveline shortened, a fitting for my oil sending unit, and out my exhaust back together.
    Pedal feels good and checked slave cylinder movement with a bore scope which showed it working great!

    Oil fitting in... Headers are in. Just waiting on driveline and a speedometer adapter. Sst sent me the wrong one and are sending me the right one at no cost. No biggie since. The driveline is a week or more out.

    EDIT: I lied the speedometer adapter is NEXT Wednesday the 18th... I guess if the driveline is done early I won't be using a speedometer!.. rather I will use GPS on my phone.

    Silver sport billet and the white shift ball temec sends when you send in your warranty into.
    It's basically the same as the lokar set up...
    Black anodized.

    Oh yeah I can't wait to drive it every time it sits!
    Thing definitely much more powerful than it did with the 400...no longer sluggish.
    I shift around 2500 driving it easy and short shift at 5k spirited. Finally just let it have it this last weekend and man does speed come up quick with it! I feel like from a roll it is much faster than it was. From a stop I would say it's slower due to the driver
