is there a "inspection" panel on our transmissions? I really think I just broke a throw out bearing, and not the clutch fingers...and I can't let the car sit while I order the parts I need.

You are going to have to pull the trans to fix whatever you fucked up no matter what. So, buy the clutch kit you want and install it. Problem solved. When (if) you ever get around to the engine swap this will be one less thing you have to worry about. Your only issue will be the flywheel, you might have to spend the $$$ on a 1.8 flywheel unless you already have the engine.

I don't know when I'll get around to the swap and turbo install, and I'd hate to drive a bunch of eventson a $360 clutch, when I could have just replaced the throw out and saved that much time. I still don't have the motor, so no 1.8 flywheel yet.

You make no sense at all. If you are going to drop the trans to replace what you think is a throw out bearing, why not just do all the work now? Do it right.

The time and effort required to drop the trans is such that you should make it worth while. Put the new clutch in, unless you can't afford it right now. Even then, sell the fancy forged pistons and buy a good clutch.

Why drive on the turbo clutch for a few thousand miles, when I can keep the old clutch in there? I don't drive the car that often anyway. I'm not worried about money for a clutch. I'm going to pull the motor soon anyway, but have to make it to a pre-paid track day in 3 weeks.

master has fluid, and slave moves a full 2" or so. The clutch doesn't disengage, and clanks like a few teeth are missing from the pressure plate, or the TOB is fucked. The pedal feels fine.

I can't help myself, it's a sickness.

You still make no sense. Why NOT drive around on the "turbo" clutch? Do you think the lack of power is going to hurt it? You are going to have to break the clutch in anyway, might as well do it while you are still NA ... once you are boosting it'll be a lot harder to show restraint.

I had my clutch in the car over a year before adding the turbo. SMRT.

Oh my god. Seriously? You are worried about a LITTLE wear now? What about when you start to beat the **** out of it once you go Turbo?

Jesus dude you look for ways to make you life difficult.

I expect to replace it every 5k miles or so, so why waste the clutch on the stock 1.6?

I think the throw out let go. It has 148k miles on it. It grips fine, but won't release. The pedal feels fine, and the slave moves, but it makes a clanking noise and never disengages. I can also feel the clanking through the pedal.
