So, 200 miles after my Factory Warranty expired my stock clutch decided to go up in my 05 GT. The dealer said it was going to be anywhere from a 1500-2000 dollar fix. I don't have that kind of money, so it looks like I will be doing it myself. My question is: how big of a job is putting a clutch in one of these things? The mechanic at the dealership made it sound impossible, and if its like doing anything else on the V6 I can believe him. I need anyone who has had some experience putting one of these things in to help me out. Is it a couple hour job or a weekend job? Will I need to drop the tranny? Since I'm going to do this myself I also wanted to put an aftermarket Stage 1 or Stage 2 Clutch in. What is the best bang for the buck out there and where can I buy it from. I not looking for anything too extreme because I'm not hard on the car. Someone please hook me up with some advice.

it can be a weekend job if you have all the tools you will need and a buddy to help you out moving the parts arround. i did mine with a cherry picker (engine hoist) in a one car garrage and if it woulden't have been for the 03's having 2 different flywheels it would have only taken me a weekend but beleive me it is a bigger job.

i run a fidanza flywheel and a spec stage 3 clutch i would say to find a different company for a stage one or even stage 2 clutch because spec's lesser stage clutches have been known to expire quickly.

good luck on getting your clutch fixed

have you guys ever heard of this company "F1" that sells clutches on ebay? they have a stage 1 clutch for 139.00. to be honest with you the low price scares me a little bit. do you know anybody that has tried one out?

i would suggest that you go with a name brand company like act or clutchmasters who have been building clutches for years and most of them have a warrenty. plus 4 cyl tib clutches are cheaper than the v-6 ones because they have been the same for a number of years
