Question [B]!!! 5 SPEED TRANS UPGRADES Recomendations !! [/B]

Hello, i just bought a complete manual transmission swap kit for my 320i M54B22. The swap kit came from a 99 328i. It includes the transmission, flywheel, clutch, pressure plate, driveshaft, shifter assembly, shift boot & knob clutch pedal assembly, slave cylinder assembly, all fluid lines, all hardware (bolts, nuts, brackets) for installation.

Since im doing a "big" thing importing the transmission parts from the US and installing them here i would like to do it well done for once and for all.

I already bought a new clutch kit from turner, m weighted shifter and alcantra shiftboot and clutch bushings.

Im considering other "upgrades or necessary things" in order to have a very good working manual transmission.

What additional parts would you recommend me?

If it's the ZF S5D320Z unit, detent pins/bushings. Absolute must. Google if it applies to you.

The DSSR makes the throw a bit more mechanical feeling. If you want to go that way, take a look at the AKG oval delrin bushings and the ECS teflon shifter guide kit.

Also, Mason Engineering clutch pedal and AKG, Rogue, or UUC clutch pedal bushings.
