Yeah, I think my clutch is giving way and it's time for a new one. How much does the average install cost on them?
its not hard just time counsuming... dropping the tranny isnt a quick job, but its not rocket science, and the best writeups are in chiltons manuelsHow hard would the install be? I haven't seen a write up about one. One of my friends has a place where we could do the install.
and with the right equipment of a shop.. its a really easy jobi had the help of a buddy who couldent change his own oil and we started sat morning and finished before the shop closed at 7pm its a very easy job, just have the flywheel lined up to resurface or replace that took the longest with me, and the cluth kit didnt have the throwout bearing so i had to run to napa but its a very easy job!
hell then they wanted another $1600 to replace a 3/4 shift fork, shift pads, and sync's. yeah, the shops around here like to rip people a new one.holy **** $900, they are ripping people off. the most expensive places around here to do it are only like $600, and this is DC. my shop charges $450, and i do it on the side for friends for $250, and give $50 to the shop.
the t56 is a lot easier trans to pull than the t45. the t56 trans to bell bolts are external, and easily removed no matter the exhaust. the trans to bell bolts are located inside the bell housing on the t45, so the whole trans including bell has to come out all at the same time.damn, i can pull a trans, do viper spec internals, and have it back in, in 5 hours total. with a T56 car with stock manifolds, or MAC's, or KOOKS headers i can do a complete clutch R&R in 1.5 hours. most of my T56 customers wait for clutch installs. thats why i only charger $250 on the side for a clutch, easiest $250 ive ever made, even in my driveway i can do them in 2 hours with minimal tools.
