Thanks also to FBIS for the great write-up that describes exactly what I'm experiencing as well - I have the SSK+DSSR since about 6 weeks ago and it's truly great.

@FBIS: I still have some (albeit little) slop when in gear. I read on the M-Forum that sometimes the washers used by UUC are undersized which induces slop - do you think that's the cause?

Alpina, thank you for the kind words. I wonder if you made sure the washers did seated properly under the slip on clips? I was very careful to seat the DSSR assembly properly.

I think it is definitely doable, but you would need proper lighting and use these pictures to feel around. Knowing what you are feeling for would be a big help. I think lowering the rear transmission mounts to tilt the tranny would be a huge help!

Nice writeup.
eclipsor, thank you for the comments.

I still have a lot of in-gear slop with the DSSR. I also have 37k miles on my car so maybe that's why.

The Evo3 + DSSR is a great upgrade though - one of my favorite mods.
NiVeDh, I wonder if you got the washers under the clips properly in the reinstall? I have zero slop now.

Love my UUC ssk and DSSR as well.

good product.

FBI....glad u picked up that one, you'll enjoy it. UUC makes great pieces, lately their clutches seemed to be less than perfect though.
Sniz, I think I will be enjoying it a lot in the coming weeks. I just need to break in the clutch before I can really enjoy things.

I wonder if they are back ordered? Have you called at all to get a ship date?
