So you are finding all the gears now?
Yep, finding all the gears

The problem turned out to be nothing to do with the clutch! I failed to properly adjust the shifter linkage when installing the new transmission. It was off *just enough* to cause the grinding and hard shifting. After pulling out the clutch and verifying everything was working properly, I then decided to check the simple stuff



On another note: HOLY SVEN this car is FAST. The turbo spools faster and the car just PULLS. And the BPC isn't even plugged in, this is just base boost!!

One more shot of the engine bay:

I'll give it a few years, then track it down and buy it for cheap.

I got an update from the new owner not long ago, the car was brought to Atomic Auto in Portland for a non-start problem that ended up being a simple fuse issue. Unfortunately I wasn't contacted ahead of time, I may have been able to troubleshoot.

Also it had a lower control arm crack, which is a shame because I replaced them earlier last year. (But lowered suspension can do that sort of thing).

Rumors of it's near-demise are greatly exaggerated
