    I believe you are thinking SMG; which is typical of gearboxes of that era. F360 and F430 for example are the same (which makes manual conversions relatively easy without changing the gearbox itself)....

    The OEM Nardi or Momo with the horn pad would be a perfect match (albeit not new) ;)

    Wow. Was not aware that thick rings were that rare, very glad I was able to save mine. Also super jealous on the "wavy" panel.

    Intermittent issues like this usually point to some sensor/wiring problem, except if it fried a coil pack (I would not see why though). Do you have fuel delivery?

    MS2 cannot directly drive R8 coils as far as I am aware. Your logic makes sense though, sticking with what you know.

    It may be a good time to go to Toyota COPs. Cheap and plentiful, and far more reliable than the stock item. Loom/adapter is quite easy to build as well with basic wiring skills.

    Slowly increasing, but still a better value for what you get compared to NA/NBs now, at least here. We got 1.8 ones here as well which are notorious for destroying conrod bearings, so a blown engine...

    Light cars can use small brakes which in turn contribute to lightness. Main reason why added weight puts you in a vicious cycle of adding more weight.

    You might have actually cured it. I have experienced instances when this has been cured by hard running an engine in a small motorbike; piston rings need pressure to properly seat.
