I really cannot see the appeal of trying to flat shift such a car. It's just asking for trouble, even more so when traction is difficult. It's not like there is any lag at all during a shift.

One thing I never did, was get a video of the belt/tensioner working on mine. Always meant to try though.

Yep, sounds like a YSi.

It's not so noticeable for the driver inside, but quite loud outside.

I'd sooner retain factory sleeves than aftermarket. Getting retrofit sleeves that actually stay put seems to be hit or miss.

Factory sleeves almost never move.

On this old Aussie/YSi Monaro/GTO from a few years ago, they ran a 90deg and bellmouth for dyno runs.

I can't imagine the 90deg doing it any favours though. Although I'd find it hard to believe a...

In a full crate is the best option, and also having it properly secured into the crate so it cannot move.

If it is going to sit about, it's best that the tank is left full with no air in it.

And does the controller not have any logging to tell you what it's doing ?

Presumably if using co2, you log dome pressure...so what is it doing ?

Heat rises, but yes it isn't an ideal filter position for many reasons.

If you can route them to cooler air without adding restriction, really it can only be a positive move.
