    totally surpised with performance

    1.8 16v in my car.. cant actually believe it but theres a rev limiter in 5th, lol

    Any ideas theres any gear boxes that fit which have the same ratio 1st to 4th but a slightly longer 5th cause there's still so much power there its annoying.. not that i'd ever be doing more than 135mph really, its just odd that it pulls right at the top just as well as it does at 90 but gets halted by a stupid computer control unit.

    z18xe.. probably the worst idea i ever had, lol, considering it needed more work than the x18 or z20 would have done... but totally happy with the result (apart from 5th gear, lol)
