Hi guys .just thought I'd let you know I had a v8 clutch unit installed in my EB and now its great apart from the slightly heavier pedal. But hey cant have everything
(had trouble with 2 stock clutches slipping in a week. mechanic replaced pedal box and new firewall bracket....but still slipped!! he told me the car puts out more power then norm..thats why....now the V8 UNIT really holds well no slipping at all- FINALLY!!!!!!!!

Why not just use a heavy duty version of the 6 cylinder clutch (e.g. Clutch Industries RPM)?

The weight of the pedal doesn't mean it is a V8 clutch. A V8 clutch wont fit I6 flywheel and V8 flywheel wont fit an I6 crank.

Oh and a stock clutch will have no problems at all holding behind an engine with the mods listed in your sig.

Maybe it's just a heavy duty version of the 6 cylinder clutch and what he means is it's to the specs of the V8 clutch?

Thats what everyone says........but it must just be one of those things...u know the woman I bought it off told me " if you ever replace the clutch have a heavy duty unit installed, normal will be no good" not sure why or how but shes right...... it would not hold normal ones...I am telling you this...it doesnt matter if you tell me It will hold I DRIVE THE f**k THING so I can tell you they wont hold........

If a normal clutch doesnt hold it means something is f**k. It would mean that your new uber clutch is only gripping as hard as a normal clutch would.

But dont take my advice, maybe you should go ask the nice old lady who sold you the car what you should do next :lol:
