Just finished installing my RJM pedal a few hours ago. I dropped several F-bombs during the process. Working under the dash is a huge PITA. I'm 6'4" and have long arms too which made it worse. Ryan's product is a solid piece of engineering. Getting the stock pedal out was the worst part. Definitely made a difference in the clutch feel. Only did a few laps through the neighborhood when I was finished. I can tell it will be much easier to DD on once I have recalibrated my feet to the new engagement window after 5 years on the stock pedal...so I will need a week or two of driving to truly realize the benefits.

P.S. as much as I hated installing this pedal I would recommend it only so that you know how to set and adjust it in the future.

This is what FI LTH's, 12" resonators, and cbe sounds like. The mike is taped just below the license plate.

Sounds killer. That track was cool how long of a track is it and what were your oil temps pushing your car that hard? Oh and good driving.
Thanks! That's Pittsburgh International Raceway, North Track, which is 1.6 miles long. I have a 34 row Z1 oil cooler. So my temps don't go over 230F on the hottest days.

Should have taken the seat out. 4 nuts and 2 plugs under the seat. That's it. Makes working under the dash much easier. I'm 6'2" and 230 lbs.

Honestly the seat wasn't the problem. Sure that may have made it a little easier sliding in and out but it was the length of my forearm that made some of the angles almost impossible to get at.

Flip the dampener around and add a 1/4" spacer under it's mounts. There is also a Z1 power steering cooler mounted on the right side.

If you do the work yourself, have fun haha!

Ughhhhh. Tell me about it. I'm yet to install my pedal lol. I haven't found a shop in LA yet
