    Rears are pretty much flush with the guards, and fronts have a little room. I’ll get a pic in the morning.

    For anyone that is interested, I destroyed my gearbox three months ago. Apparently the TR6060 didn’t like a 3rd>4th mis shift at 6500rpm :(. Lost 4th gear then a hundred kms later (separated by a week) big bang going around a corner lost the lot!

    But all’s not lost, in the mean time I’ve installed my HSV alcantara steering wheel, had my shifter boot re trimmed in black leather with white stitching and I’ve skinned my shifter surround and dash spears in genuine carbon fibre and not that ugly cheap looking CF wrap. Hoping to be back on the road in 4 weeks.

    Gearbox comes out tomorrow, then I’ll take it to Develo_pro in Pt Adelaide Friday arvo, they’ll strip it down Saturday or Monday and tell me how much damage I caused :(. Then the rebuild begins.

    Holy shite! Didn't think you could destroy a TR6060 so easily...

    Is this power at the rear wheels or crank? My ve ssv is booked in for the same cam on the 22nd. HS108-C12 cam, otr, extractors, decats and tune. No head upgrade though.

    Yeh mate at the wheels. As we know dynos vary in power outputs, that’s what I made on that dyno. Kelford advised me that I’d make around 330rwKw.

    Another gearbox update, the final piece of the TR6060 puzzle was getting the cluster gear crack tested and hoping it didn’t need replacing, unfortunately for me I ruined that too. So a grand tally of $2750 in parts and a total of $4500 for the rebuild, had the option of a brand new one for $5200. Pick the gearbox up hopefully next week.
