      I had the dash out but it's actually better to have the dash in place to better check for fitment. Of course it will be more of a pain in the rear.

      Yes. This thing works great. The clutch feels like it came this way from the factory. The mc has to move just a hair under its full range of travel for everything will work right.

      Well that's unfortunate. But I don't have to tell you that this his how projects go sometimes. I had the bolts loosen on my rear main seal and they carved big ugly grooves on my pressure plate. So be...

      What was up with the crank sync loss? Are you still using the ABA VR sensor? VR conditioner circuit?

      Once you fix the thermostat, I'd imagine that the radiator fans will start working since they need the radiator to be hot to turn on.

      What is that sensor you have plugged into the top-left of the coolant port? This is a blind hole. (see my pic). And what is the purpose of the sensor on the top right? just a plug? I have my coolant...

      The very first thing I'd try is silicone oil along the edges of the glass where it slides along the channels. I've also heard of Armor All working but I used a sort of silicone lube spray.
