Honestly I really dont have a problem driving the stick, 1st gear doesnt seem jumpy (it feels exactly like my prelude). So I dont know if the CDV is warranted at this point. Please Note... i havent romped on it yet so it may be light and day at that point.
the reason im posting is because i did feel the slip caused by the CDV when going from 4-5 or 5-6, i literally felt it slip and i know this over time will add wear to the clutch. I didnt like feeling this on my new car. And it made me wonder which would fail first... a clutch due to the slipping or the hardware the CDV protects... and which would cost less to repair. Nobody will have these answers.
all that ^ crap being said... i'll prob get the cdv replacement... but not just yet.
thanks guys for allowing me a minute of your life
Congrats on getting your car! Lets see some pics now. However, unless you just dont know how to drive a manual, the CDV mod wont hurt anything short or long run.
