10-14-2009, 09:45 AM
i recently had my clutch decide that it wanted to drop the springs from the pressure plate.. so i need a new clutch. at the moment my motor does not have much mods to it. but i plan on stage 3ng my car . i no i will need a better clutch then a oem type. at the moment im looking at a southbend stage 3 on ebay. i will b doing this in my driveway.

i have 2 questions.

1. does anyone know of a good clutch to put in. that will hold up with a decently modded motor.

2. does anyone have a step by step tutorial of some sort on the disassembly of the tranny and clutch area. i have my grandfather who was a mechanic of 65 years +. but he has never done anything in a newer type car like this.

if anyone can help that would b great. i dont want to go entirely blind into doing this. so if anyone can offer any tips or tricks that would b great.
