Clutch/Flywheel Install Cost w/ Motor out


May go ahead and have the clutch and flywheel replaced (and tob/pilot) when I have the shortblock swapped out.

Just wondering what you guys think the cost would be. Seems to me they wouldn't charge much more, if any, to do this. Shop is busy today and said they will call w/ an estimate later (this is including getting the clutch kit from them).

From what I gather, its roughly 4 hours to do a normal clutch install and based on $100/hr its about $400. Seems about right since the tranny shop i went to charged me about $450 for the install.

However; the motor will be out of the car (new MMR 800) so the shop will just have to slap the new flywheel and clutch on and pop the motor back in place. Wouldn't think that would take much more than 20mins to do.

They'll probably still charge book cost for it and bank the extra just because it's quick and easy. Unless they're a really good shop and they charge only half because it'd only take half the time to do it that way.

They shouldn't charge you a dime extra in labor if they are doing the motor swap. Reminds me of when I was young stealership try to charge me for clutch install labor when they had to take it out to rebuild the motor. It make no difference if they swap your old clutch over or put brand new one on.

Shouldn't charge anything. Shouldn't matter which clutch is going on. Around here a clutch install is $250-$300 and that includes resurfacing of the flywheel.

Realistically they have to remove the stock clutch anyways. So they have to reinstall a clutch regardless.

So if they charges I'd be kinda pissed.

if they charge you for more than a flywheel resurface and parts than they are ripping you off.

I would also have a new pilot bearing and rear main seal put in while the motor is out.

the clutch and flywheel is a bit much at the moment lol

im thinking since my ToB makes a tiny bit of noise... yes its the FRPP one but the tranny shop did a hack job on installing my clutch. im thinking ill replace the ToB with another FRPP one, do a new pilot bearing and rear main seal. thanks for mentioning the rear main seal MG2V. didnt even think of that!

i know my clutch will eventually go out. its the RAM HDX Clutch w/ the stock flywheel that was resurfaced.

do you guys think the clutch/flywheel will be fine for now? maybe get the flywheel resurfaced again??

If money is tight, reuse the clutch and have the flywheel resurfaced. When you have the funds, I would definitely switch to a stage II clutch and either a billet steel or aluminum flywheel. Most stage I clutches are rated around 450 HP at the crank. You're making more than that, so as the clutch wears, you may begin to notice some slipping.

The shop will charge you for the clutch, that's almost a guarantee. Has nothing to do with any extra labor, more to do with liability and their own insurance. Now the charge may be minimal, my guy charged me $100, but that included new cable and firewall adjuster installed with the new clutch and flywheel, that was with my motor out of the car. It does suck but sometimes it's the cost of business.
