Moving on from the actual procedure to the parts themselves.
Has anyone ever fitted an ‘uprated’ or ‘performance’ clutch to a car and what were the results?
This is going to be a roadcar, I don’t want a racing clutch that will be a pig to deal with in the ubiquitous traffic round here, but is an upgraded stage 1 organic clutch from the likes of Black Diamond worthwhile? Clutch replacement is a big job by the looks of it, so I’m tempted to go for a stock clutch kit from BluePrint on the basis the OEM original clutch has managed 117k miles absolutely fine. Its also helpfully half the price of the uprated unit.
Does anyone have any views or experience on this? Its a third car so can be worked on at my leisure in the garage within reason - I sort of plan to do this over next winter when the car will be off the road anyway.
