Hello Everyone!

I bought my ST new and it has been with me since then. I kept it mostly stock until the warranty ran out. I had all those common issues our platform suffered from and got most of them fixed under warranty.
I love the car and I actually started spending more 馃挵 around 75K miles when my stock clutch failed. The car has 95K miles now.

It was tuned at 80K and ran stage 1 for few thousand miles. The car is driven daily like it was just stolen (after warm up)
I consider myself lucky since there is plenty of information on this forum which helped me decide which parts to use and which ones to avoid, So I hope this thread helps others too in deciding which parts to use.
I will try to document install and other information I gather here.

A lot of people want to make as much power as they can but forget one crucial thing, how are you going to put that power down? My goal is to make sure whatever HP the car makes translate to the road.
This thread will serve as a log, its hard to keep track of all the parts.

Finally the LSD is here.

After 3 and half months, this part was holding up all the other installs!
Originally I ordered MFactory, Vendor never delivered, saw other people getting their LSD's in 3 days from Taiwan. Cancelled wavetrac ordered MFactory.

Hoping to get it installed by Friday, need to kick @DJFreshlySnipes ass this Saturday. :cool:

I thought I had everything the mechanic would need to install the LSD but apparently need a new one of this.
Output shaft bearing?
waited months, I can wait until after XMAS.

I am a bit confused. Did you order wavetrac and not get it and then order mfactory ? I was gonna go wavetrac thru fswerks and then saw mfactory for 699 thru maperformance. Either one of these outfits reliable for delivery ?

Something always has to come up last minute and ruin it all.
My mechanic called me to tell me the synchro kits 1 and 2 dont fit.

He sent me this picture and told me the others fit perfectly.
Was I sent the wrong synchros?

Also I need an input shaft seal 7025A, any idea where to get it?

What's the problem?

Which synchros did you buy?

Yeah you need 4 bearings for the lsd/synchro job. One on each top of the countershafts, and the 2 on the differential. Also new ring gear bolts and output seals. Not to mention shims for the LSD. Which I doubt most shops actually shim it out for preload.
I bought this Jacks Transmissions

and mechanic says I need these
