So do you think the TOB/slave was faulty or the wrong one was sent in the kit?

Being wrong wouldn't make it leak, I'd say he got a lemon

It was faulty. I found the problem as soon as I dropped the tranny back out and put fluid to the slave assembly and found it was leaking at the section of the joint. I'll take a picture when I get home

That joint where the clip is where it leaks from. It is very flimsy. They are sending me everything minus flywheel and it will be here tomorrow. I'm going to put it all together and see if the current clutch works ok. I sure no fluid got on the discs to contaminate them so I will have an extra set of discs and a pressure plate.

Sounds like top notch customer service!

Hopefully the rest of the install is uneventful and you'll be in a boring break in period soon!

Customer service was great. Tell you what though, that transmission is really easy to remove now after doing it twice in two days. Took me forever to drop it out the first time but I went slow and cautious and now it took me about two hours to get it out myself today.

Ok clutch is in and only drove it 10 miles and so far it feels nice. Engagement is lower than stock I removed my BMS clutch stop, pedal is much stiffer but feels nice, easy to get going from a stop didn't stall or anything, can't hear any audible noises or anything, I have a slight chatter when I go to take off but I had the same thing with the stock clutch, could be from the dog bone insert or it's just me cause neither clutch did it all the time, rev hang is a little bit better, very easy to drive. I used the original clutch pack and pressure plate they sent me cause I was pretty positive to the discs didn't get contaminated. I have an extra brand new pp and clutch pack now just in case. I recommend this clutch so far but I only have 10 miles on it right now. I also did the stainless clutch line while I was at it.

Also I weighed the transmission before I put it back in and it weighed 103 pounds with no fluid

Thank you for this. I saw the little tranny in my car and was planning to "bear hug" it out, seems I should go get a decent trans jack first.

I used or have a transmission jack (shitty harbor freight) and I ended up throwing it out of my way and lifted it in. The jack I had does not work good for a transaxle. Getting it out was not bad and the jack worked ok just try to balance it so it don't fall off the jack

I've hit almost 200 miles of the 750 dkm recommends for the break in period and I have a shudder taking off in first gear and in reverse but reverse is worse. I ordered new bfi stage 2 engine and transmission mounts to see if that helps. A little bit of chatter if it gets lugged down then goes away.

Let us know how the mounts pair, I'm curious how much vibration there"ll be with a clutch setup close to stock weight.

Twin disk will always chatter and vibrate more than stock, especially since our stock clutch is DMF.

The spring hubs on the disk plus the steel plate between the two disks are the root cause, but knowing that it's normal you won't even notice it after a while.

Obviously the stage 2 mounts will amplify what you hear and feel but the benefits greatly outweigh that.

This clutch is currently on sale at ECS, I'm really tempted to just go for it

My problem is when I had to pull the transmission back out cause of the faulty slave assembly I don't know if any fluid got on any of the discs and contaminated them which will cause it to shudder more. I have another clutch pack and pressure plate that's new that they sent me just in case. I'm going to let this one go and see if it gets better over time which I think it should unless it's contaminated.
