Matt: That VX look's pretty nice. On the clutch, I think the adjustment your looking for is on the slave cylinder, mounted on the transmission.

On the frankencivic, with your time allocation priorities, your choice to redistribute the fankencivic and keep the engine, is probably a better choice, than not.

I actually had a conversation with a guy today about my VX. He said, "so, you like racing?"

"No, in fact I have a spare z1 engine in the garage for my car."

"really?"

"yes."

"Well, I just spent $4000 on a new engine for my car... it has 200 HP now."

I sometimes wonder how often I'll have to explain that my car isn't turbo-charged, but rather is turbo-economy.

For 4000 he better have put a gold plated diamond studded engine in there.

I'm sure you will keep us posted with any glitches and we will be happy to diagnose them for you too.
HMMM, what happens if somebody does overfill it? As I'm pretty sure I topped mine off quite high after bleeding the clutch?
