I've finally collected together all the parts I need for a fairly major maintenance weekend: an ACT 2600 clutch with street disc, a Fidanza aluminum flywheel, a Unorthodox Ultra SS underdrive pulley set, a Road Race Engineering braided stainless steel clutch line and balance shaft eliminator kit, and a whole mess of parts from the local Mitsubishi dealer for a complete timing belt change. I started the process today, pulling out most of the miscellaneous crap in between me and the transmission; I'm hoping to get the clutch/flywheel swap and the timing belt done tomorrow, so I can start the break-in period on Monday (I have an autocross event on June 8, so I'd like to have a little time to "get on it" to get used to the way it drives after all of this is done). For the curious, I'm following a number of VFAQs for this particular round of work, in addition to the shop manuals.
After a little visual inspection, it turns out that the stainless clutch line from RRE is actually for a 90-94 DSM (1g). After emailing Mike@RRE, he quickly offered to make it right, by giving me a quick introduction to how I could use the 1g line to do the same thing the 2g line does (eliminate the clutch reservoir), and offering to either give me a $20 credit if I went with the line I have now, or to just send me the correct line. Fantastic answer; I'd love to see more DSM vendors behave in such a responsible manner. Add to that the fact that he responded on a Saturday, when they're closed, and I'm impressed. I haven't decided whether I'll just use this line, or have him send the right one; I'll probably decide when I get everything apart tomorrow when I've got a little more elbow room to work with everything.
Total time invested so far: 3 hours.
