John,

If that's really a possibility ... it would be so cool ...

We could fit it in the airport car park ...

Hell Yeah,

I could do that, we can have a drink or food at the airport if you are on a fast transfer or if you have 6 hours or something like my friends did on their way to New Zealand we could even go out for dinner.

Paul.





I'll let you know. We are going to adopt a daughter from China. I believe we will have a lay over. It will be about this next year.

Al sorry for not getting back to you earlier, I got your message at 2 and called the forwarder right away. Glad everything was squared away. For some reason they thought these parts was going to be delivered to my house, straighten it out and have them delivering it to my garage

Paul, everything is now out of our hands Exhaust was also picked up today and will be shipped out together . I'll PM you with updates and documents will be sent to the forwarder directly.

John

We went with what we had. John, thanks so much for taking care of that. We almost had a mind meltdown when the trucker told us that tht 3 800 lb or so crates we loaded on his truck "had to come off" cause we didn't have the paperwork! Thanks again man. Saved the day.

Damn Paul I thought you were building a monster not a whale 3800 LBS plus the car weight your shit will look good but will be getting broke of by the Daewoooooossss.



Your girl needs to tape the whole event at customs when you get your crate and go home to have all the stuff placed all over your house and I know from experiance you need to have her a gift in your pocket when you get there. Tickets for a weekend away or something . Take her to HK Disney and stay in a Resort for the weekend. That way you get time over the next few months to rub on your car instead of her.

Paul,

Tranny was cryoed ... apparently I just didn't get charged for it ...

So it's a straight TRE race tranny with US spec final drive and rear ring and pinion. RS 1st and 2nd gearset, US spec 3rd and 4th gearset and a VERY tall 5th gear. Double synchros on 1st, 3rd and 4th (no double synchro on 2nd ... not possible with the RS 2nd); carbon front LSD with Cusco 35/65 rear bias centre LSD.

So is the 5th gear straight cut? I really want a nice tall 5th gear, but don't want one straight cut.

No, not straight cut. TRE has these things on their site as an option, but I got mine from Teet.
