will be fitting a few bits off the xsi such as the quickshift and the wind deflectors and throwing my phase 1 interior in it, not sure if i'll do anything else as I've got hte other one to work on but i'm sure it'll probably end up with something Very Happy

Cable will need replacing, there is a self adjuster on the line which is expertly located below the exhaust manifold causing it to seize (from heat) and make the pedal feel really hard

if it has been done and still stiff hopefully its not the clutch itself, other ideas could be thrust stuck on shaft (mikes china xs did this totally shattered the clutch) or nylon guides on the clutch arm slipped cos of a broken lug

Hope its just the nylon guides as they can be done without box being removed just got to hope you can re align the lever on to the clutch (pull type clutch)
