    You have to love these cars :)

    Got the new exhaust done, the cracked diff cover changed and put the car on the dyno.

    The clutch started dragging, but we got the the tune done, tested a new motor oil, and generally had a good time.

    Today I looked into why the clutch started to drag.

    Adjust the rod, bleed the system, no change.

    Pull the slave cylinder and dust boot, shine a light in there... low and behold at least of the phillips head screws hold the PTT pressure plate assembly together has backed out. These aren't the bolts holding the plate to the flywheel, rather they hold the pressure plate assembly itself together.

    Sigh.

    Not much different than back in May of 2008.

    Corrected was up just a bit, uncorrected was down since it was a lot hotter (97/8%/24.33 vs 72/6%/24.48).

    Boost was the same, just a little less timing (18 instead of 22).

    It's repaired. I'm in the process of putting it all back together.

    Should be ready to fire up later this afternoon.
