    I had my LS7 clutch/LS2 Flywheel installed last week. So far so good. I had the same parts installed as you listed in your initial post. I can't wait to get to the track without a slipping clutch. I hope to dyno next week as well.

    did you install it yourself? if so, anything i should watch out for. also what other mods do you have? The last time i went to the track i got a 13.7 with a 2.4 60', without being able to get it in to 3 and 4th easy, and with an extra 75lbs in it. i also cant wait to see what time how it does with the new clutch.

    I ordered my kit from ScogginDickey and the early kits like mine did not come with bolts. The new kits do come with the bolts. Looks like everythings listed. I did mine with help from a friend. It was pretty staight forward swap. We had no problems at all.

    I had a friends dad (mechanic) do mine...$300 bucks was well worth it, rather than laying on the ground in January lol. Maybe put some new trans fluid in while you're down there and check U-joints, but looks like everything is there.

    I had a friend do mine at his shop. Only cost me about $400 here in Canada, so that was a steal. Unfortunately, I don't currently have the space/hoist to do it myself.
