      The only reason to go with 262's is if 268's are out of your budget. You NEED to replace valve springs with 268's as they reach bind.

      They both make more power everywhere over stock. 262's idle...

      This.

      If you think you can feel the difference, you are recieving a placebo effect. There is more of a difference if there is a 25 degree temp differential run to run.

      Your clutch disc is dragging. If it was one gear, maybe two, it could be the synchros. All gears? No chance.

      Start by reverse bleeding the clutch slave.

      If no luck, there is a good chance you broke a strap on the pressure plate.

      The build quality of the Kinetics kits is on par/below that of ebay kits for other cars. It's REALLY over priced for what you get.

      Agreed 110%

      It's a 100hp ABA in a 3k pound car. The only thing they have going for them is they are moderately comfortable. Ruin that by increasing NVH, and you have a miserable car to be in.

      Because using poly in the rear control arm spot is moronic. It is a downgrade in EVERY way, and in NO way will have a increased longevity over OEM bushings.

      Those work great for CV/Steering rack boots. But they loosen a few MM by design when they lock, and that makes them a pain on wrap.

      Huh?

      5w30 oils are "thinner" then 0w40 at operating temp, and almost the same at 32*. And a 0W40 is in NO way a "very thin" oil. In reference to Kinematic viscosity.

      And there is absolutely...
