So I started driving with out music, just to hear my car a little better. i noticed that when i slowly move into first gear and i keep the clutch at the engagement point(i dont know how to word it, but i hope u guys understand) i hear a weird noise. It is a pretty soft noise that sounds like a baby owl or somethin. like woo wooo. lol idk how to type it, but it has a high tone but not sharp, jus a soft quiet tone. It seems like it is a vibration noise. I just got a southbend DXD clutch, and i have about 700 miles on it(so it is pretty much broken in). What do you guys think is causing this noise?

throwout bearings usually make noise whenever the clutch is engaged in neutral and will usually go away whenever you push the clutch in

my southbend made noise after i installed it but it was more of a metallic sound and it also went away w/ time

edit: oops...supposed to be engaged [headbang]

my SouthBend OFE HD clutch also made noise early, but has since gone away. I still have a little chatter from the LWFW on occasion

yea, now that i think about it, it does seem like a metallic noise..like metal pieces rubbing against each other or something

if it is a t/o then it wont go away, just get worse. Usally it is described as a squeal, would that be a good way to put it? Also is your clutch slipping at all?

Well i havent launched the car yet, but from just driving around, no slippage. I will do a little launch tomrrow to see how it feels. Ill bring it to KMD tuning tomorrow just to have them check it out.
