Guibo, rear main, pilot bearing, fork pivot pin, fork retaining spring, clean throw out bearing guide tube. Shift tower bearing and rear shifter bushing.

I think you may regret going carbon kevlar pucked. Its too much clutch for your needs and coupled with the sac it will be interesting to drive on the street to say the least.

Also having the tranny out doesn't make your life any easier with the oil pan gasket its another job entirely and the front subframe must be droped to do it. So unless you're planning on doing that too save your money on the gasket.

Ok so I got my clutch/flywheel kit a few days ago. It shipped out a day late so I wasnt able to do the job over the weekend as planned. So now I am going to have trouble finding time to do it in the next few weeks, so.......

My question now is, what is some advice on whether I should wait a couple of months for the bad weather season to be over and save the new clutch from the rain, slush, & snow?

My current clutch still grips well in 1 & 2 and really only slips at mid RPMs and getting on the gas. I feel it could be babied for a while but I dont want to find myself in a situation where it craps out on me suddenly. I guess I wonder if the SAC gives a false sense of it being not as bad as it really is.


On a side note for anyone that goes the Gripforce route, make sure to check the components of the kit well before install. The release bearing I got has a manufacturing defect and they are sending me out a new one. I was told it is a LUK product so it may just be a freak thing, but always a good idea to check things well before install.

P.S. My driving is 95% city driving (almost no highway) and I only put about 600 or so miles on the car a month.
