hmm

in american dollars, that sounds like alot to me.. Im gonna order the clutch masters from rr-racing.com for 227.00USD and get it installed for about 350CAD. Does that include the machining of the flywheel? if so then I would say its not bad... Then again me not really knowing jack shit about cars.. I could be completly assbackwards about this entire post... Dont ask why I bothered then... good luck!!

:smokin:

Cheers

It's a tad pricey but not unreasonable. $300 for the clutch, pressure plate, and TO bearing. $400 for the labors sounds about right. If you have the extra cash, get the aluminum flywheel installed as well ($300).

Just make sure that the stuffs actually get bolt-on to your car. You never know now a day. There is a chance that your clutch engagement point will be an issue soon after the install. I guess the best part is that you can take it back to those guys and have them adjust it for free. However, you or they have to modify the slave cylinder if that doesn't work. **** luck!!!

umm... you don't have an ACT clutch do you? You can bleed it till you're blue in the face, flush & change out the brake fluid, replace the master & slave cylinder and still wind up with the same problem. Given that not all ACT clutch owner will have this problem but it's out there more often than not.

clutch

engagement point is usually a problem with the act. it engages almost on the floor a lot of times. however, there is a remedy. you can lengthen the rod on the slave cylinder by about a quarter inch, and that supposedly takes care of the problem.

vitek, clutchmasters and valley friction are other options.
