I'm going to have to argue that dyno results are much more satisfying than install times.

good to know, I want to upgrade mine one of these days. A clutch rated at 200tq isn't going to cut it for much longer.

no sweat. it could be done in a FULL day. if you reuse the flywheel, you'll have to account for resurfacing time though.

Im thinking about a Fidanza lightweight. Could this be done in any garage or do we need a lift?

i've been considering a lightweight flywheel, can't really make up my mind, fidanza is the cheapest but i've read about some issues with them so i kept on looking and just got myself more confused. now i'm not sure if i'm gonna do one.

four tall jackstands is all you need. and several different sized blocks of wood. and the OEM jack. and a floor jack. and wobble extensions! and and and!!

but seriously, i'm doing mine in my garage in spurts--evenings, weekends, whatever free time I find.

I did my clutch install on a lift and with a trans jack. Took about 3.5 hours. Inculuding ofcourse a fidanza flywheel and exedy stg 1. And replacing the seal in the belhousing of the transmission.

The flywheel is a bit noisy at certain rpms, but for all of us that are turbo thats just another noise. Tha flywheel in itself was the best NA mod i had done up to that point. (Intake and full exhaust)
