At 75mph on the speedo, I'm doing 3000rpm's.... That's nearly a full 1000rpm's better off than the 5 speed I used to have

I hope its saving me money!! It certainly cost me enough!!

Even tho weirdly, with the 5 speed, I was still able to get from Bideford to Birmingham on half a tank of fuel... That was with Esso's super tho... Wonder if that made any difference?

They just revved too high for my liking... I had to get a 6 speed in it... I wouldnt have had it this long if I hadnt!!

Dave, where you live? I'll swap cars for a week/month whatever and you can see what you think, drive it as you want and go from there...

I can't be more fairer than that can I?

For me phil youve took away the heart of what a sti type r`s all about-i suspect this will lose you money when you come to sell it,i want them to be a bit of a handful and on the edge-hope you dont take this the wrong way but maybe you bought the wrong scooby in the first place. (i wouldnt buy a sti type r without the std box meself)

Mate with that STI 9 6 speed box, you dont loose ANY of the orignal Type R's close ratio box BUT you do gain a great cruiser and its a Scooby Its still a great performer still with a close ratio box to begin with...

I'm having an idea with regards to my car, so please check out the thread (when I've typed it out!! ) and feel free to let me know... Its just an idea going through my head....
