    The clutch doesn't fell heavier on the pedal. Revs a little quicker. Engagement feels about the same. Wont get on it till it's broken in. It shudders little on take off but is easily corrected with a little more throttle. Seems like it drives smoother with the lightweight flywheel.

    Stage 4 clutch is not that much diffrent as far as engagement. Thought there would be a huge difference.

    Ok, had to drop my truck off at the shop this morning due to an oil leak at the rear main. Had the same shop replace it along with the clutch. Only 2600 miles put on and sure it was leaking right away as there was an oil smell the whole time. I thought it was just the penetrating oil they said used to free studs. I'm sure my new clutch would be covered in oil. Can they just clean it and reuse the same friction plate or is a new one required?

    So much anxiety over all this. Low oil I was not aware of and maybe ruined my new clutch. No alot of hard driving put on it.

    Guess it depends on how much oil was on there and if it caused a lot of glazing of the friction material and flywheel. If it neither, and a lot of brake clean is used, it may be salvageable. A lot of unknowns.

    I bought the cheapest intake I could find on Amazon.
    Also bought motor mounts I linked. Home that are as good as the solid offroad. Figured they were cheap enough to buy and try out.

    Well, just got these in yesterday. I guess they are a little firmer than stock but not as stiff as I was hoping for. Want to find a stiffer trans mount. Looks like I might end up trying to make one myself if I cant find one. Maybe do urethane resin and pour my own on a stock mount.

    did you try contacting that company to see if they offer it in a harder duro? maybe they can custom make one for you.

    Yes. I sent them a email and have been unresponsive. Hopefully he replies back.

    The solid offroad mounts are the ones I really wanted but the cost was alot more. Maybe down the road. I really want another daily as my civic was totaled and I've been forced to use my truck for work. I hate having to use it for work.

    Also replaced busted rear u joint. Should have done the other 2 but was being cheap.

    Cheap replacement for stock mounts that are a little stiffer and transfer a little more vibes. I want the solid offroad mounts later. I also filled the trans mount with some urethane. I might buy some urethane and por my own with a new trans mount.

    I'm at 162907.00 I am going to need to do my inner tie rod on my passenger side. Might do the outer at the same time. I have been into the shop multiple times and always ask them to check things out as its always has shakes and wobbles at speed. Turns out I'm better at diagnosis and fixing than the shops around me and I am limited on tools and a only use a small jack with stands. Was going to have them replace my whole steering rack but I am certain it is just my inner tie rod. Will do urethane bushings on the steering rack at the same time. I want aluminum or delrin bushings but cant find anyone that sells them.
