You got a RPS clutch if I'm not mistaken. I would like to here your thoughts on the clutch after the break in. I plan on going the clutch and flywheel route real soon, it can't wait much longer.

Congrats on the install and the clutch. Treat it well and make it last. Don't drive like some crazed 16 year old smoking the clutch to race everything from a Hyundai to a Ferrari from a stop light.

im not sure how heavy it is, is it hard nope the bolts were pretty easy to break, and all we need to do is just drop it out the car.
you can find motor mounts at.
http://www.ptuning.com
and look for the matric motor mounts, if you can find them, just call them they have great service.
yes they fit GT, GTS.

nope, right now the only thing holding the engine is the 2 side motor mounts, i think he is going to hold the engine up with a jack stand or a jack. ether way he is going to finish today. the bad thing is im at school and he should be working on it now =*( so i wont see the rest of the install.
ill have vids comparing the fidanza flywheel and stock flywheel. will see how much faster it revs

ill have vids maybe tomorow of the engine reving with the Fidanza flywheel. over all the car feels better, and stiff do to the motor mounts. the shifting is a lot better, the clutch fells the same as stock, over all i recomend this combo to everyone thumbsup
