Thanks for taking the time to write all that down but I've actually placed an order for a full shifter kit frkm RTD which looks a great bit of kit, just waiting for it to be made as there was a 6 week lead time on them. They're certainly fantastic cars. The 3.0 engines sound amazing. Keeping the power mods at bay for a while except releasing some extra BHP with breathing mods mainly with manifolds then being able to rev it higher. Be interesting for a few people to meet up at a track day when I've got to grips with it and see if I can convert a few more people to make the steps. But yeah modding is a different game with these compared with the Clio's.
