Ohhh, are you using that freshly rebuilt 1.6? That is a good idea. Because with a snail on there you will forget that it is a 1.6 all together. I have also heard(and seen used) the turbos off Saab 900s work fairly well also, if you can find one that works. I bet you can find a T3 easier than that though. Good luck!

Actually the PO before me put that clutch in. Some ceramic/kevlar combo I beleive?
It was always a bitch to drive but it's an awesome clutch!
He used to track race it in Portland so that's why it had a lot of work done to it.
