Default Braineack dominates my clutch change.

I dont have pictures though.

But we did it in a few hours yesterday. I held him back because of my lack of garage and driveway so we probably spent an extra two hours shuffling tools from my basement and rolling around in the dirt and grass.

The twin plate clutch is off the car and the FM level 1 with FM flywheel is installed.

I'll probably put the twin stuff up for sale though it needs a rebuild. I might have some brand new spare disks for it somewhere.

Brainy: are you alive still? Did you find food?

Me and Tom (actct) just did his 6 speed swap. I think it took 4 hours, but I'm fairly certain there was a food break for some caramel frappe goodness.

How do you think the FM clutch feels?

What weight flywheel?

Lol at above. At least you guys got it done in a day. I drank too much and it took me a few days, but whatever. Good choice on the clutch!

Why did you switch from a twin plate to the FM1?

Must be karma for all the time you spent "supervising" when we worked on mine and his cars.

I don't let people stop for food. And I apparently don't let people stop to take photos. Sorry.

We both were under the car and doing various stuff. No slackers.

Because the maintenance interval for the twins is shorter than a standard clutch. Performance wise it's awesome. I just wanted the longer R&R interval and plan to never top the torque limitations of the FM Level 1 (318 ft-lbs?)
