      Nah, I can't engage anything now. I drove home with no clutch. Just rev matched the synchro. Suspect bad slave or master cylinder.

      Back from a trackday. OK, the engine is incredible, the handling with camber and toe makes the car neutral with slight oversteer in most conditions which is highly desirable... BUT, as you can see...

      The ester oil went into the engine. Millers 75w110 synthetic in the gearbox and it took 2.4L.

      Ah I see. You do twin 044 at 4bar to feed the monster. :beer:

      044 do well at higher pressures so that should be sweet.

      In fact it's a bit on the noisy side. I struggle to scrape under 100db at 4000rpm which is the limit for trackdays.

      Time and money permitting I'll get some straight cut gears where I'll have 230km/h at 8k rpm in 4th. That would suit me perfect :beer:

      I already have a Peloquin in the front and rear diff.

      Cheers. :beer:

      Well, the billet 30R is great if you are on 1.8l displacement and non E85. Probably the best street turbo for the 1.8t imo. If you do like me and stroke it to 2l, run cams, E85 and...
