I bought the car brand new is January. Currently sitting at 3k. I don’t drive my car like a madman every second, but I Do get on it with on-ramps and the occasional backroad.
I would expect it to last around 25K-30K total mileage tuned (dependent on driving style), if you don't do any launches and do not use full throttle under 4000K rpm in 5th-6th. After that you are on borrowed time. "Get on it" is a very vague statement, for how your car is driven
I see people that say they can (and being good are two different things) drive manuals as their daily:
1. Over slip the clutch at every start...a clutch should not bee slipped more than 1 total revolution of the wheels...
2. Fail at rev matching downshifts by 500 or more rpm consistently or not at all
3. insistently "traffic crawl" foot by foot at traffic /stop lights/signs in a que
4. sit with the car in gear/clutch in for an entire 2-3 red light repeatedly.
5. Floor it in 6th at 2 to 2.5K rpm to pass on the highway, instead of rev match downshifting to a lower gear to minimize the torque surge the clutch sees at peak boost...
with this type of stick driver a stock clutch on a stock tune is not going to last more than 40-50K and some individuals count that as "a normal clutch life..."
Pay to change it out now why your flywheel is still good and save the $450 bucks by not need a flywheel change and go with a SB stage 3 drop in disc or an HS tuning RSR. After 10K on the car I would error on the side of and get flywheel as well... I would only go single mass if I was tracking or autoXing regularly.
you are in reality an an above average manual vehicle driver and have some mechanical sympathy you could make it to the 40K-50K mark, but as I stated before it is really a matter of when with a "tune".
You are not planning on keeping the vehicle more than 3 years.... IF you have any wiff that you are going to swap vehicles every 3 years(like the majority of debt lovers do in the US...)
I would drive normally and dump it before it "needs" a clutch....(shitty but the way of a majority of people are, but hey car dealers don't have much of a conscience either.)
If this car is leased, I would encourage you to leave it totaly be....or if you just "gotta have" it tuned...buy a jb4 or a neuspeed power module, drive smartly and call it a day...
