I had a stage III clutch put in about two months ago and yes, it is a little firmer...but not bad at all. I actually like it better because I feel more in control. It is not even as bad as my brothers stock 99 cobra clutch...

$300 bucks at the dealer. I did not even want to mess with it without a lift!

Default RE: Just finished my Spec II clutch install.

I'll try to address everyone's questions in one post:

First, driving impressions. The pedal effort is nearly identical to stock, but I am getting a very faint chatter at low RPMs. From what I understand this is common with Spec clutches because of the compound they use and will go away during the break in period.

The Spec II is rated for 520 ft. lbs.

Yes, I reused the stock flywheel. I had it resurfaced by a local shop for $25.

Bleeding the clutch is easier than bleeding your brakes. There is only one bleeder valve to deal with and you just make sure there is enough brake fluid in the resevoir.

I couldn't really get the motor tipped back any more without loosening the prothane motor mounts. I suppose it would be easier to tip the motor back some with the stock motor mounts.

Also, moose was right. The rear transmission crossmember cannot be removed with the H-pipe in. There are two hangers connected to it. Don't know how I missed that before...
