      With that said, I should have went with the stock M20 Sachs clutch Austin...The Spec 2 grabs fugggin great, but isn't ideal for daily driving....it plants power down and gives no fucks
      His trans was supposedly a low miles unit from his 323i parts car. I put some new fluid in for him a month or so ago and it didn't help...who knows.

      I'm just gonna throw one of my used stock clutches in for now to get the car on the road. Might go with one of those ebay clutches or perhaps a SPEC later...more money I really don't want to spend right now.

        Idk just sounds like you have the average g260, I thought you meant like the shifter was binding up on the interior/trans/something.

          I think low miles is the problem Ive never had a g260 with less than 250k on it let alone 90k I just need to break it in

            No, it probably never was serviced in that time and the synchros are all gummed up and/or are worn to fuck from dirty ghetto felony flats SE crackheads driving the piss out of it.

                                M60 time? Com'on man, join the dark side, go full retard!

                                Of course, I haven't even started working on mine, just a garage of parts right now. Just a Seta with Eta management, and a nasty exhaust leak for now. Hopefully late next week, the 5.4 triton I am doing rods bearings, mains and a crank will be done, then my pile can move into the garage.

                                BTW, anyone ever rebuilt a steering rack? Everything I am seeing looks like it's not too bad. I'm considering doing a better rack swap, just not sure what will work with the M60 swap.
