Just wondering what would be the cause of this? Everytime i let the clutch go, i get a slight clunk which u can hear and feel throughout the car, I can never get smooth gear changes unless i let the clutch go stupidly slowly.

its got a brand new pbr clutch kit, and its in a ed xr6 t5 which is home in an ef ghia. Was this the cause of wrong installation?
