I re set the idle , I unplugged the IAC set the RPM to 750 and then pluged it back in. Idles at 950 , so thats good. It was the battery light. I forgot to plug in the alt pig tail. If thats the only problems , I can deal with that. So far no leaks at all....Knocks on wood...Ha HA.

EDIT: this is out of order but here is a pic of the timing all done.

Thank You. Hopefully it runs as good as it looks.. Still have a bunch more go fast parts to add. Gonna run my SPA set up to break in the engine, then add the other parts, IE the FRIM and 75mm t/b. New down pipe, open waste gate with the TIAL/ vband.

So far so good, Tuning with Tom, just sent him #2 tune. My Competition Stage 4 clutch sure seems like a soft pedal, It works fine, but my ACT clutch had a stiffer pedal, Is it the solid hub? I might go and bleed it some more, but it was clear , no bubbles. It grabs good. I thought it would be hard to get used to. but feels too easy ?

I wouldn't worry much about the clutch, my CM st4 feels softer than stock but grabs a lot more.

OK, mine is really soft. But it does grab , how far up off the floor does it grab . mine Is about 1/2 way up. Little to far for my taste.

Good deal, I wonder why they make them so soft. I would like it a little more pressure.

Well , I took her for a long drive. She runs great. Have about 90 miles on It now. No hiccups at all. Runs very smooth. I thought the aluminum fly wheel would make some noise. Very impressed. Sure is hard to not just whip her good and hard.. Can't wait for boost !!

I was concerned for the softness when I first got it but what I don't like is the lightweight flywheel it chattees quite a bit

I am not hearing any chatter at all. I do hear some noise when I run it up to a high rpm and then just lift off the gas, letting the engine decelerate. But that sounds more like trans noise or throw out bearing. It is kinda loud though. But other than that it is very smooth under acceleration.
