Hey guys,
haven't posted for quite some time now, but the Daemon is back!

I busted my throwout bearing and pressure plate and had to replace them. I thought since I was taking of the tranny anyway I could put in a lightweight flywheel. I chose the UUS stage 1 flywheel in combination with the stock M3 clutch disk and of course a new pressure plate (hit two teeth out of the old one)
Let me tell you: that was a VERY good idea. I LOVE the quicker response and the quick revs.
Apart from the fact that I had to benchpress the transmission back on the process went very smooth. Attached are some pics.

- $350 for the flywheel (got a good deal, usually around $450)
- $90 for the M3 clutch and pressure plate (eBay, hehe)
- $30 for the new throw-out bearing
- 8 hours of sweating and cursing (cursing coz the AC kept peeing on me )
- almost a ticket coz i testdrove it with just the exhaust headers on (sounded awesome)
- several minor cuts
- one 1st degree burn on the lower arm

... but it's done!!

Not quite, the headers come down to the height of the oil pan, so it was blowing it under the car. The only problem was the O2 sensor is on the mid section of the system so the computer was confused for a while and it was running REALLY rich and the "check engine" light came on. But the computer adjusted back quickly later.

Definately. I love the engine response and it pulls better too. I heard stories about stalling engine and rattling in neutral, none of that has ever happened since I put it in. I guess those people didn't put it back together correctly (probably didn't allign the tranny properly)
