Default Clutch & Transfer Case time!

340ft/lb at the wheels wasn't too kind to the stock clutch that's been in there for years...

Or is it my feet to blame?

My clutch is about to turn into kitty hair if I do another hard pull with it. Its holding as long as I don't go over 10psi.

SOOO.... I'm in the market for a clutch.
I'm looking at this :

Exedy Stage 1 HD for about 450 bones from shepracing. John is confident that this clutch will hold up to my car considering its rated at 402ft/lb.

Very cheap clutch, oem clutch maker for evo, and no lockout issues compared to ACT. Any input would be appreciated.

Also my Transfer Case is very very toasted (fluid looks like silver paint coming out), and whining like a lil bitch.
I'll be getting a replacement from www.Karking.com! $1500 for LSD RS t-case. OUCH!!!

Anyone want to lend a hand on aligning the trans to the block later next week? :)

when exactly next week? Depending on when I'd be able to lend a hand for a little bit. You have a cherry picker, or where are you planning to do it?

Possible locations...
1: my garage (clairemont), would be a oldskool dsm style tranny on chest monkeyfuck muscle it in install, with BASIC hand tools. (no cherry picker)
2: my buddy's house (santee) with pneumatic air tools and a plasma cutter. (mucho tools + cherry picker)
3: on base, either NASNI or Miramar.

I'm ordering the t-case tomorrow (should be here before christmas or soon after), and going to pick up the exedy or order it from a cali vendor. So it'd be after christmas.

I'm REALLLY not looking forward to this, I've done too many tranny drops with my dsm.

Thanks for the interest :)

ooo.. anyone have a good evo8 flywheel laying around? So i can machine it in advance?
In return I'd be willing to trade you my flywheel machined after the install.

Really hoping to get this car done in one day. Fastest clutch swap on my dsm was 9 hours.. I doubt I'd be able to repeat that.

I would LOVE to borrow the said tool! if you do not mind.

That exedy clutch is not the HD unit, only holds 330ftlb, i need more in the 400ftlb range. thanks for looking, that is a great price.
