clutch replacement recommendations

Recommended Posts

Will be replacing clutch for an '02 C4S at 50,000 miles (have throw-out bearing noise) -- would appreciate recommendations/experience both as to brand (SPEC, Sachs, etc.) and type (what's gained by going to a Stage 2 or 3 clutch?).

As a baseline, Suncoast has the factory replacement kit for $500 (http://www.suncoastparts.com/product/996clutchkit.html?Category_Code=996Trans).

While the car is aggressively set up (PSS9 on lowest setting, GT-3 sways and links, etc.), I just drive it on the streets/country roads, and do not track it.

I do like having good feel at engagement (as opposed to rigid on-off jerkiness) so as to modulate smooth starts, and don't mind more pedal weight -- greater durability is also a significant plus.

My mechanic will also be doing LN Engineering IMS upgrade and RMS while in there -- anything else worth doing or particularly cost-effective to do?

Thanks for your help!

I just did the same thing--IMS, RMS, and clutch. It is reasonable to consider doing the spark plugs at that mileage also. Also, LNE has a oil change kit that includes a magnetic oil drain plug and adapter housing for screw in oil filter. It makes sense to put them in also in order to make future DIY oil changes a bit easier.
