    So hows it feel? I know the clutch isn't broken in yet but hows the shifting?
    Is there any noise from the shifter? Does your cruise control work? Is the speedo accurate?

    Feels like candle light dinner outside on a spring evening

    Shifting is solid, only noise is about 1800 rpms in 4th just like I am in too high a gear for speed kinda thing.

    Cruise works in 4th and 6th (why those gears who knows)

    Speedo is dead nuts.

    500 miles is killing me, going to try to slid out early from work and put miles on it. Clutch feels better and better every time I drive it. Plus I bled the hell out of the clutch.

    Did reuse your stock slave cylinder from your mt-82? When mine gets installed next week i want my cruise control to work in 5th and 6th, don't need it for 4th....your running 3:73 right? are they enough for you cause I'm going with 3:90's!

    Sounds exactly like mine. I thought it was bit odd that the "you're in too low of a gear, stop lugging the car" happened at such a high rpm, but mine is exactly the same as yours--right around 1800rpms.

    It's very odd that your cruise works in 4th though. lol I can't figure out what the reason is for the difference in all of our cars. Did you change your tune to reflect the new ratios with the tremec?

    Nope, no tune change right now. Going to be spending a weekend re-tuning the car soon.

    Been going round on why the cruise thing, it's all computer controlled so idk what's up

    Talk about lugging, he's using 3:31's. Which is the equivalent to a 2:67 gear in an mt -82 car. bucket you will have to get a lower rear end gear at some point! 3:90's are about and exact match of 3:31's in a mt-82 with a 27 inch tire!

    Haha well mine needs to be fixed before it's worth anything.

    I did get to see a disassembled mt82 today at a local shop and it actually looks fairly beefy save for a potential weak points.
