im guessing on your pic there thats where your located... if so i would deffinitly say ya thats far... allthough i could do a road trip ... still drives alright slits from 2nd to 5th gets its not that bad but its not possible for me to roast on the dry pavement. not to menation i gotta do the bearings in the diffy. making weird noise.

ANYWAYS..... i was thinkin on doing the clutch myself.... but i wanna get some good info from you all.... what brand and type of clutch should i get for relatively cheap. and what is a general rough cost of getting the flywheel resurfaced. i want my tranny to be good..

any suggestions?

and what procedures should i do to do this. i been hearing rumours of clutch installing can be a BITCH on these cars.

well, with a good set of tools, like really long extensions for you rachet to reach the top bolts on the tranny, wiggle socket extensions, and a torque wrench, for when yout putting back the clutch on the flywheel,
i torqued all those bolts to avoid, a long cursing, and getting pissed at myself

and a lift , and a tranny jack would be really helpful

it all depends on your application,
your still stock right?
a stage1 act clutch should hold you jus fine

but if it was me, i would use a exedy trible carbon clutch
with a heavy pressure plate
and lightweight flywheel

hmmm that sounds nice... but how much would that cost to get in canadia dollars lol. and for the tools i have is a mastercraft socket set. with half inch extentions and 1/4 inch not the longest extention bars tho. i also have a torque wrench but no breaker bar. which will cause me tons of problems. and for jackstands... i dont have any so i gotta find something lol. anyways yea... thats my problem at the moment.

but if you can give me a price on the clutch setup your talking about that would be great

HAHAHAHAHAHLOLOLOLOL
LMMFAO.

This is going to be interesting and I mean that in a positive way.
I'm just going to watch quietly for a moment.

You have all kids of clutch options. If money is no matter..., Kevlar.
If money is a matter. Anything stage 3 is the next stop and if it matters still.
You get the drift.

Good Luck. I'm Looking forward to this.
Be prepared to be put through the paces and just assume that murphy's law is in full effect until you prove otherwise.

Seriously. FLuck a camaro.
You're in a different breed and a different class.
Enjoy.

I agree with the fluck the camaro comment

But, the triple carbon with the flywheel
Last time I checkd was around 3500 dollars

They use kevlar now? I'm guessing around 5000 for that clutch?

And when I said, really long extension I meant what I said, like something 3ft or longer, cuz its pretty hard to get tools up there,
And u need a pretty big jack, and tall jackstands if your preparing to do this all in the ground, and a few sets of strong hands, cuz I could only imagine how hard it would be without power tools, power tools are your bestfriend when it comes to these type of jobs

Don't get me wrong, it can be done without it, but there's a reason why they invented them
