How long do you think the relearn process takes?

let me tell you the whole story.about the clutch/tranny... I bought the car, drive it home, next day something came loose in the tranny. caught in the clutch/flywheel, pieces blew out the bell housing. Got a spec stage 2+ clutch/flywheel installed, new 6speed tranny, and just got it back 2 days ago. Put about 40miles on it since. Im thinking its that cable issue(well hoping it is, I can do it myself). I really hope the garage hooked the clutch up right but hopefully they will honor it since I just got it back.

they should have no problem with it unless it turns out to be something they didn't do. I'm curious, but did they do anything about the crank position sensor? if there were piece flying around in the bellhousing, it could have taken it out. Yes it's in the bellhousing.

ok. It was probably bolted to it so the chances of bracket damage or sensor damage shouldn't be an issue with the replacement
