    thanks!

    Yes the kit did convert it to a 26 spline.

    All new timken bearings, 1-4 G-Force gears, blocking rings, 1-2 and 3-4 sliders, fork pads, rear bearing billet plate reinforcement a few other items as well + labor to install the total was $2500... after multiple quotes and shopping around for a few weeks on several different options it feels like I got the most I could for the money and meets my future plans.

    Transmission installed today, all systems functioning and was able to take it for a test drive... 1st through 3rd are definitely whiny and it was a bit warm around the tunnel, I suspect that is due to the more aggressive gear design.... anyone else have any experience with G-force gears?

    Next step is to take by the transmission shop for a test drive it since they put it together... hope all is good with it.

    The Gforce trans I've had in the dyno were def noisey. I have built several T5s with the A5 gearset from Astro and they are noisey due to a straightening of the helix and thicker teeth on the gears. However, you will never break it. I've got a few coupes, love the body style. Yours is beautiful. Sounds like you have a great plan laid out for it. Please check your torque boxes and replace those southsides with something with urethane bushings in them instead. Jmho. I've seen a lot of nice cars have their torque boxes destroyed by ssm lift bars. They have no give to them, so the sheetmetal flexes instead.

    Thanks! And thanks for the info on the g force, definitely good to know and glad to hear itís worked well for someone else... Iím definitely planning to take care of the torque boxes, that was my concern too when I got the car and saw the SSM lowers, theyíre still in good shape at this point. Not making enough power to tear them up yet...

    Just normal driving will destroy the torque boxes using those ca, unfortunately. In stock form, the unequal length ca move both up and down and in sort of an eleiptical orbit side to side. The ca you have don't allow the side to side and the torque boxes flex to allow the normal range of movement. Hope that makes sense. Easier to explain inperson than typing. Lol.
