Shoot that looks real nice for less than half the UUC unit! I should email to confirm fitment for our 5-speeds

smi2710 is on a distinguished road
it was very hard shifting into gear and downshifting was damn near impossible when it finally blew i had started in 1st revved to like 3.5k tried to shift and it was stuck in gear. When the RPM's got down i shifted as usual and drove another 20 minutes before i got stuck in 4th gear

my buddy said it looked like an over rev but it was on its way out for sure

A shame BUT you now have a chance to do some good things with the car to make it better.
  • Change transmission fluid to Redline MTL
  • Change transfer case fluid to Redline MTL
  • Remove your clutch delay valve
  • Put a better (not the LuK self adjusting) clutch in your car. Call UUC in Atlanta first, if Rob can't sort you out then go to Clutch Masters in Texas.
  • Install the UUC short shifter as well, Rob has this back in production.
Enjoy, it'll be a better X5 when you're done.

Greg

Davintosh, nice find! That looks like a pretty sweet piece of art. I like that it is adjustable at all pivot/articulation points and has a vibration dampener to reduce vibration transduction/noise into the cabin. I hope its true that they have a specific application for our "SAV's". The price is good too compared to the UUC. Hmmmm...... options are good.

Might be something to try but not on an X5 or X3. I have supplied an OEM shifter to UUC for the X5, it has a very specific bend at the bottom that this one wouldn't have. For an X3, it has a (nearly) 90 degree bend at the bottom, even worse.

This would be similar to the Evo 1 or Evo 2 release (UUC). UUC is now at UUC with a seperate shifter ball cup (Evo 3) that is also significant to shifter geometry improvements.

where in Jersey? looks nice, are those the ebay halogen headlights, not DEPO right? I'd love to do some exhaust mods for mine to get a bit more tone out of the exhaust.

I'm in Islien, NJ..... I got Spec-D headlights (similar if not same to many of the ebay ones)

Install was pretty straight forward, but did need a mulitmeter to do some rewiring and initial troubleshooting.

If your looking for just tone... have you considred glasspacks ?
