well thanks for being the first to do this. i'll be watching and learning from you because i also need to replace my clutch master cylinder and this s2k might be a good oem performance upgrade. i'll probably buy the braided clutch line as well that way i won't have to reflare and be afraid of messing it up.
Wow! great thread and way to keep up on the pictures. I also have my type r trans apart right now and am swapping a 5th gear. I had to pay that 150 you were talking about to replace the synchro sleeve set because I had a bad 5th gear grind. I didnt know that you could just drop the countershaft on a block of wood to get the gears off so I just dropped it off at AAMCO transmissions this morning to have the 5th pulled off and the new one pressed on.
Good luck on the rest of your rebuild and keep us updated!
To begin, I first drained the transmission outside and proceeded to carry the transmission to my spare room. A comfortable work environment is a MUST: (no I'm not married)
So I'm not the only one who at times has more car parts/tools in the house than I'd care to admit. With your set up, some beer, coffee, and computer for posting to TI, there really isn't any need for crap like a television.
Nice write up and please post as many pics as possible.
