Well i have been looking to upgrade my clutch on the 5000 with the stage 3 setup from Spec. They do group buys up for 5 clutches, and the gent i talked to said that it can be any early 90's late 80s clutches included. just no a4 a6s or s4's. I Know that Javad is looking at them for his 20v project, and I nkow that others are putting together beasts. 3 more interested? Here is a link to there stuff. Pretty neat goods.

Check it out.

You know how i thought my clutch was gone....It was just the crown of the pressure plate snapping giving me no pressure to engage. the reall tell tell was the shaking clutch.

Cheers

David, the guy i talked to said that it would probly be a 10 percent cut for 5. I think the stage 3's are around 470 retail so in the neiborhood of 420 could be expected. finding 5 to group buy with may be a trick though. The other thing to consider is the lightweight PP. For 70 bucks you get 15 percent cut on weight using different alloys and steels, or about 2 pounds. Maybe we should lobby for the retail but with a the lightweight PP. Jim, what stage do you have your eye on?

Cheers.

Oh, probably the stage 3. I'm kinda going on Javad's advice since I really have no idea. I'm probably going to need one of these at some point, but I don't think now's a good time for me. I expect I'll be pulling the motor some time this summer, so at that time a new clutch and Findazia flywheel go on the MC motor with big valve head, inconel EX valves and Ti retainers.

So, yea, I need to start saving some coin. I guess for now count me out, unless you guys REALLY need me. :roll:

Yea, i jumped the gun too, buecase Javad already got his....he said he was going to use a Spec clutch, i thought he was going to get one. He aready has one.....

Naw i havn't found anyone yet..so ill probly just pay the piper. :(

Yea, i want to plan a big valve job springs and cam. The summer will be great i suppose :wink:
I want to do the Findazia flywheel, but i can't find any for the 016 app. Im looking at ways to take material off the stock one, but that seems like a PITA, and sortof scary too. We'll see.

Cheers to ya.
