K SWAP GUIDE (PART THR33) ACT clutch/flywheel, SPEEDFACTORY Detent springs, and Drag spec Shifter Spring kit

Thanks for following our K swap guide series, as we highlight the most often left out details or unanswered questions about installing a K swap. This marks our fourth installment of the series, with the first one just being a prologue and backstory to why we are installing another K20 on Pats car.

Whats Up with ERIC’s Car?! plus k20 how to install.

If you read the last blog post about my brother’s (Eric) car, you’ll know he was half way back to D.C. from Oklahoma when his transmission decided to give up the ghost. You can read all about it here>>>>> http://functiontheory.com/2018/11/erics-car-we-can-rebuild-we-have-the-technology/ So hopefully you’re all caught up to date or, none of this going forward will make much sense. As most people with K20’s know things aren’t cheap, and having your transmission rebuilt is one of them. Since both Eric’s car…
