i went through almost this whole thread and i guess i'm really not understanding the concept of this... would it improve something or is this just for cosmetic/looks?

it will get rid of the soft mushy clutch feel. You can feel the engagement better which is important in my own opinion. I've jerked my car a couple of times because I couldn't feel the engagement until it was too late.

my production parts are still waiting to be shipped to me. When I have them in hand, I will open up the first GB.

Also, note that we removed the entire bracket that is there to support the old one. This is what I would recommend as the fitting will no longer experience stress because its not doing anything but passing fluid instead of damping it.

I'm thinking I want black. I'll take some diluted waterbased paint, fill the engraving multiple times wiping away the excess so I can have bronze filled engraving.

Poster, I mean poster. What have I done?

Actually, I have a black and red theme in the engine bay so the red outline would look pretty cool.
