When I did mine I took the gearbox out from the top - looked easier than the 'drop from the bottom' description in the haynes. Up to you. > 150mph = 240 km/h if im not mistaken and it could even reach that before i got the speedparts chip, now it just does it a bit easier, but speedos are always off a bit so maybe it is just doing 140 ? i dont know, but i had up to speeds over the last dash going on a long stretch of straight road or very slightly downhill. The calculation's right - I'm just surprised at the top speed. I thought the 185bhp 9kT topped out at ~135mph. > ill have them balanced soon, thanks, ill check for any slack/play this weekend. Good plan, keep us posted. -- Grunff
