Either way I can wait!
Your gonna love it. Mine is getting much much better. I'm at 260 of the 700 break in miles. Bench bleed that slave assembly before you put the tranny back in to make sure there are no leaks lol.

I would bet money the dkm peddle feels much better than the SB just because of the twin. It takes less force to produce more bite because of the greater surface area with the twin disc/pp

Just the $500-900 savings alone makes it feel better than SBC, not to mention the more Oem feel and better performance

Do it yourself, it's not a hard job if you have basic knowledge and tools

A quality torque wrench is also a MUST for this type of work.

I've thought about it and I've done everything else on my R with the spring install being the most extensive work. I rent a garage though and it's a ways from my apartment. I think if I owned a home with a garage it would be a different story.

Maybe I'll revisit those Youtube video installs again...

The length of the pp bolts we're 3/4 or about 19mm

I would recommend buying an oem tb and using that. My TB is making noise so I'm going to have to pull my tranny again. The quality of the oem does look much better than the one that comes with the kit

How long would you say it took you to install the DKM clutch? Iím on the fence as if I want to do it myself. My concern is if the install went south, that it would take time to get it right. I work a lot, and donít always have time on my hands, but considering trying it because shops want to charge me $650+ for the install, up here in UT. I do have a garage, but I donít have a lift, or a transmission jack. I just have the tools needed to remove/install, and jack stands. Is it worth tackling it myself to save $$ for a shop to do it?

Did you ever find the exact specs for these bolts, so that I could also buy some stronger ones to install when I get this clutch?

If your capable of doing it yourself then I say do it. It's not hard. No I can have the transmission out in 1 1/2 hours or less, putting it back in was a little more difficult cause my tranny jack is garbage and don't work well for transaxle. The most tedious part is tightening the pp down cause the are 27 bolts and have to go star/criss cross pattern to tighten and only tight each one 1 turn at a time then once it's all seated take each bolt out one at a time and put loctite on and torque to 10ft lbs. I have to pull mine out again to change the TB/slave assembly again.

I will double check when I get home on the thread but I'm almost positive that's it and they are 3/4in long or about 19mm

Would the OEM throw out bearing work with this DKM Stage 3 clutch? Just wondering if I should buy the OEM TOB and use that instead of the one DKM provides, just so I donít get this problem during the install.
