Bet you can't bloody wait, it's going to be a beast.
Hopefully fun without ruining the car all together 馃槀

I鈥檓 going to ask Paul to do me an eco map as a secondary just for winter. Stops the wheels lighting up too much. If ECUTEK is capable of this

Mine is n/a ecutek tuned, standard lsd box.
Consider sound deadening sheets - it worked in my case(I think I鈥檓 getting older).
Oh I鈥檝e looked into it in detail mate, I鈥檝e got the whole kit with the load mass vinyl and closed cell foam already in my amazon basket.
Late summer I鈥檒l strip the interior out and do it

I've thought of this just for use for communting.
They recon a 10% fuel saving at national speed limit, being lower revs, and less noise.
something I will definitely look into if my gearbox gets refreshed.
Not that I鈥檓 fussed about fuel, but a pleasant cruise volume at national would be decent.
sweet spot seems to be around 65 as it is

I'm more looking at the idea that I currently get 40mpg with the stock gear, and I figured being able to drop it from 3k rpm to about 2,500 would help gain another 5 or so mpg. Nice thing being of course that the other 5 gears are the same still, so it's still a Type R, just with a bit more of a GT capability for my long drives.

Sounds a pretty appealing mod. The gear is a couple hundred quid then whatever it would cost to replace it so it鈥檚 not bank shattering if done at the same time as a clutch or synchros etc hmm
