I have this hole in the side of my car

I was going to use this hole and ducked it to the side vent on the outside
but i was thinking the side vents might be a bit low on the side of the car. and this might suck in water

i filed the hole in with some steal and re drilled the hole in the new position

Nice work. The difference in pedal ratio is massive! no wonder we have to stand on them! (assume its a similar ratio for the Spyder)

Paul.

When you installed the VVC engine and box, did you use the MGF gear cables and shifter, and if so, did you need to modify anything and/or cut off the shifter balance weight?
