    i have the exhaust and intake so now i feel itchy again.
    i want to fiddle with the transmission so i was thinking about the LVL10 VB kit.
    not sure yet if they infact ship the kits overseas but i was wondering if its a difficult/complicated/delicate job for install. There are not many good techs who know about import cars here in Korea.
    performance wise, does the VB get rid of the "bump" in 1st gear 4k rpm to 2k rpm decelleration when its in manual shift?

    I have the generation 1 VB upgrade from lvl10. The bump from 2nd to 1st is there when you are over 2-2.5k rpm, but not in any other gears. But still you don't want to be downshifting hard when you are that high in the rpm range. I really do enjoy the VB upgrade is it is something I would recommend to anyone with an fx. I heard the 2nd generation VB upgrade is supposed to be even better. I don't know if lvl10 ships to Korea but the upgrade is fairly easy. Basic bolt off and bolt back on once you get it back from lvl10 with new fluids.
