Dude....you're gonna take a bath trading it in. Plus you still owe $16K. Just upgrade the clutch and enjoy it worry free as it will most likely outlast the car.

I feel your frustration. My clutch started slipping like crazy....with only 600 miles on the car! A few things to consider imo:

How can it be significantly off alignment if all the bolts thread in clean by hand before torquing them down? Is it really that easy to mess up using new bolts and torquing everything properly?

Hmm....would just going with a new OEM TOB avoid most of the issues people are having? If that's the only issue, seems like an easy solution.

For me it was more access to all the bolts that was the problem, even with the ECU unplugged. How did it come out of alignment? Did you not jack up the trans enough to keep it in place?

Exactly what I experienced. Not much added vibration but my goodness was it loud inside the cabin. Not in a good way either.

S1 insert fixed it, no more NVH with both S1 mounts.

Aren't those like $900? That's absurdly expensive and unnecessary imo, not even worth considering. The BFI mounts are very well made and less than half the price for all 3. If simply installing BFI's...

As stated, internals should be ok at IS38 power levels, you're clutch will need an upgrade.

Don't know much about COBB's IC, DP, intake, etc but don't think its the best setup for this platform.
