Hey guys, I have searched, i promise, just couldnt find what i was looking for.

hypothetically speaking (:lol:), if i were to be looking for a new clutch for a t5, and i was happy to run something that is stock in terms of power handling and weight, how much $$ would i be looking at?

And where would i get one from?

Cheers,
Nic

Valeo are cheaper. Standard exedy clutches for 8s cost around $400-450.

I paid $365 delivered (I think...might be getting confused with some other stuff I have bought) for a new clutch kit including new spigot bearing from Hightek Brakes.

That kit was supposed to make the clutch seem a little bit heavier but I found it to be quiet soft and better then the stock. It is a performance clutch, but I think it was worth the money...

phong =P~

You can get an Xtreme clutch kit like I have. It seems to do its job very well now and the clutch pedal is much smoother then the stock one I had in before, which was pretty stuffed up. The clamp load is meant to be 20% - 60% more then standard, so it should feel heavier if you have a healthy old clutch cover. You can get a heavy duty one as well but I reckon that's a bit overkill especially with the weak pedal box and firewall (mine aren't reinforced).

There are other brands out there but I haven't driven a car with them on personally...and I forget their names. So all in all, I am happy with the Xtreme clutch kit :D.

phong =P~

EDIT: :oops: I meant Xtreme clutch kit not Exedy...buggeroo

What do you guys think???? work the money or keep looking? i can live with my slipping clutch i've only been using the clutch when i set off at lights. I find it easy to drive around without using the clutch and don't bother me about synchro's cause i plan to rebuild it in the next few months anyhow.

and if your still after a clutch "nicco"

you might find this one to your liking

Jason, i dunno, there is something about buying parts like that off ebay which kinda scares me! :lol:

and the reason my question was hypothetical at the start is I am looking at buying a manual conversion. but the one i have made an offer on has no clutch, so i wont be buying anything straight away.

cheers heaps for all your help guys
