BTW, it was a good visit in Bama, a pleasure to visit face to face. I checked the clutch's not for 6-speed.
Good points here and others made. I think my frustration stems from the DISA problem and lack of power. This morning in the crisp air it felt great. For now, I am keeping the 3.46. But who knows. Maybe I'll find the ever tough to find 3.23 I want.

And indeed, I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch together!
