    Anyone else have problems with the ZF grinding while trying to upshift under heavy load?

    Took a few friends out the other weekend and really, really dug into it.

    Stretched 1st, 2nd, 3rd to red line / did some power burnouts

    Now it grinds if load is applied and then shifting...

    Time for a new ZF? Just changed to fluid to see if helps

    Uh oh.. here comes the 22rpd adapter. Plate. Haha


    I just took it out it just seems so damn notchy. It's like you have to time perfectly when to shift and cant just throw it in whenever

    Also got some weird vibration in the rear when starting from a stop. Only happens when at certain friction point though on the clutch pedal. If I over rev and let off the clutch it doesnt happen.

    Glad you are enjoying it! Your build has been a good guide and inspiration for me so far. A few quick questions...

    1. Did you end up using that new egg downpipe?
    2. How do you find the clutch pedal feel of the stage 3 clutch kit? With no break in, mine is really heavy and just trying to tell if that is normal or if one of my bearings or the fork is binding or something.

    1. I didn't use the down pipe. 3" DP wouldn't clear my trans. I would have to pie to clear it. So I went with 2.5" DP that opens up into (2) 2.5" pipes.

    2. Clutch is pretty heavy for the most part. Even when broken in - Not sure how long its going to hold up either seems to slip a bit under full power

    Thought I'd post since its been awhile. Hope everyone is doing well...

    Been driving the car as much as I can, still around 7-10 to PSI, believe it or not. The small back housing makes it extremely fun and driveable on the street; Car seems to boost instantly. Spraying a lot of Meth with AFRS tapering into 10's with only occasional idling issues where they hang 16 after driven hard but they return to 14 shortly after. Could be vacuum leak when warm, haven't had time to check

    Started wet sanding and buffing the clear coat which is really bringing the shine out and also working on finding a couple loose odds and ends that are missing from the car. Restored my CF Hood, fitment is horrible though, but it's light, so who cares.

    Working on getting the car street legal again. I was dumb and did side exit exhaust thinking it would pass inspection, it won't. So now I have to redo it, the way they want it . VA inspections suck, don't live here.

    Future endeavors include upping the hot side AR to around .80 or so. EGT's have me a bit worried with such a small back housing. Didn't think about this upon purchasing the .58, just wanted instant boost

    and

    Pretty suire the trans / rear isn't going to hold up much longer so will probably have to do something with them soon

    Yeah inside your factory diff you have 2 clutches that make the diff lock.

    If you pull out a spacer you can stick a third clutch pack in there.

    If you machine the cap and pull the washer you can get a 4th clutch pack.

    Every pack increases the lockup. The more lockup the straighter it will come out of the hole and less dramatic it will be when it comes loose.

    Your factory clutches are likely worn so it really probably needs one set anyway.

    Ok, understood. thanks. I am pretty sure my factory clutches are worn after 350k km.
    also found a pack with vented clutch plates, any ideas on that?

    Thanks for the info Zack.

    Pretty sure my diff is done. Acts really weird from a stop, juttering violently

    Finally went and got the car inspected today... did better than what I thought it would. Just have to throw a steering wheel with an air bag on it and fix the power steering leak and she'll be road legal for a whole year

    Got away with an open wastegate though

    I donít see how they are really of any benefit. I would probably stick with oem style disks. Your call though.

    Hey thatís good news on the inspection.

    Diffs can act pretty funny when they donít load up properly.

    My diff acts the same way from a dig. Definitely got worse after I installed the fx stage 4.

    Mine is more smooth when letting of the clutch quickly but if try to baby it you can hear the fly wheel chatter and it bucks. I was thinking that I didn't break the clutch in properly.

    I had a new clutch and as soon as I got the tune installed I put power the wheels, was anxious

    Latest Pic, love the way the front of it looks (with a nice VA REJECTION sticker) - around 2,300 (1900 of which in boost, lol) miles of FI life

    Car finally passed inspection. Took a week but with persistence, got it.

    Can drive the car without being pulled over now.

    Inspector said " well your legal now but I cant guarantee you wont get in trouble " as he looked at the car

    Think he admired it lol
