The original ones, no. But they released DOT approved ones for fog light applications. I think Justin just put a set on his truck

Well looks like it's time to pull the transmission and put in new clutch components. Not sure what exactly is making the noise, but I suspect either the slave or the pressure plate.

I'm leaning that way as well since I wouldn't think the slave would make a noise like that.

I'm probably going to go with a Stage 2 clutch this time around.

It must be such a PITA to swap a clutch or it's components.

At least the transmission isn't all that heavy.

It's really not that bad. Most annoying part is dropping the exhaust.

As a guy who's never swapped out a clutch or any of that, the sound of having to pull the transmission off the engine for something that's 'routine' sounds like a nightmare. Sounds very invasive.....

Once the transmission is down, it's all right there. Probably only takes 1/2 an hour to replace all of those internal parts. The whole job probably takes about 4 hours if you're going slow. I did the entire manual trans swap in two days, and I had most of it done the first day. All I did the second day was wiring and putting the interior back together.

That's not bad, actually. I wouldn't mind a stick shift if I didn't live in stoplight city.

Like I'm not even exaggerating. There's 8 stoplights in less than 1/4 of a mile all slammed together, and none of them are timed for traffic flow.

The road I take to and from work has a section that is like that. It's so frustrating. Sometimes I won't even make it out of third gear.

I've heard the clutch can be a nightmare to bleed. Any specific way you go about doing it?

I just follow this video. Actually had to do it today to try and get as much air out of my failing slave cylinder as I could.

Pressure plate seems to be making the noise, the slave is just pouring out air bubbles. I went through 3/4 of the big brake fluid bottle and it still was releasing bubbles. Realized it probably has a leak somewhere and I just gave up and called it good enough. The clutch is better than it was, but it's still not where I want it to be.

I'll figure out everything when I tear the transmission out of it.
