Dave,

I'd have to look thru Edward B's build thread, he does a fabulous job documenting his builds. Sorry if you've already looked there. Mine is a Gen 2 so I'm out.

I am glad that the issue wasn't with the engine. Please report on the shifting upgrades too. Mine was installed right out of the box. No complaints but only about 1000 miles. Merry Christmas
