Sounds like you prefer longevity out of your clutch? If the case I would stick with OEM as a replacement.

Doesn't seem to be an issue for MikeJ not dropping the engine, he's done many 993s locally this way including mine.

His thread for reference and options:

msw do you still use the car on regular basis?
still daily workhorse; but 575M gets worked out too @ 70+k miles

Impressive! It┤s always nice to hear that someone actually use their cars on daily basis. Is the 575 reliable so far when used on regular basis? I owned italian cars myself but nothing exotic so far. They where as reliable as anything else out there. I would guess a Ferrari is the same if maintained as it should.

575 has been rock solid...mechanically...and is so fun to drive.

all ferraris have issues with leather shrinkage and sticky interior parts...just part of their charm.

Yah, I drop the tranny even on AWD, have a system worked out so it's not a big deal. I do not like to disturb all the connections that go to the engine or have to dump the oil if I can help it, just more to go wrong. :-0

But that mileage - wow, nice job! Has the engine ever been apart?

Cheers,

Mike

at roughly 225k, he had a soft cylinder wall or something, so he replaced it with a turbo S motor from LA Dismantlers. That lasted like 75k miles before having some catastrophic issues. Motor was then rebuilt.

Scary I know all this lol, ii'm not a stalker I swear.
