Whenever mine is done we'll have to start a /8 300D manual club!

Yea deffinetly like the clk wheels on it...not sure on the mileage increase though because for whatever reason after doing this set up my fuel and temp guage quit working in my cluster...but clock still ticks away..was wondering if it had anything to do with the neutral safety but i doubt it...
anyone ever find out what wires on the auto trannys neutral safety controls the reverse lights?

I think some wires are loose in the rear of the instrument cluster.

I couldn't find my manuals yesterday concerning the wiring. I will keep looking.
