Hi,

is not an option becouse i want a full fitting box, means

- fit the intake pipe in the chassis
- fit the air filter element
- fit the turbos position

i just want the design of the tte box but except of this it is sub-optimal :lol:

Do what I did initially and make your own. It's amazing what you can do with extruded polystyrene and fibreglass.

Another option which I thought about was making a metal one. Cutting away a square from the inner wing/wheel arch, make a box out of metal and weld this over the hole, the air filter fits onto this, then make a TTE style top to fit over it......don't know if that make sence?

Hi folks,

doing my own isn'T a good option becouse i never did any moulding or fiberglass work, out of metal is still a option but therefore i need a
good handcrafts man....possible i find one but for now i would go the carbon fiber way and a specialist who can do all the work

welding on the chassis is not an option for me, i want to stay oem in that case, if i doesnt get a solution i just let the oem box stay in position
even i need the space for my custom oil catch can

email them and ask if any difference. I wouldn't think that a pushrod would be different between the gearboxes.

Hi,

will do this,

my key problem is the clutch, after the new engine was setup i notices that the clutch opening point was at the floor so the pedal was fully pushed
i simple dediced to set the pedal more away from the floor to get the opening point higher, the shifting is not that exact as oem any more the gear often
went in that easy, now i try this pushrod and set the pedal position new

i'am glad for any ideas of professionals too.....

The pictures are of the Speed Source push rod. Apparently they answer questions on their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Speed-So ... 0234467482
