I haven't committed to it yet. Once I get the car back from getting the new tune/exhaust, I'll let clutch feel be my guide to whether I replace the one that's in there.

What is a 2.5??? What does that mean? What kind of pressure plate and what kind of clutch disc is it? That is what is important and what you need to know to make sure you are getting the right stuff. It's probably going to be a 764 plate and some type of disc but you want to know for sure. Not all parts are created equal.

I'm at $3400 now with labor and flywheel-now we found it needs 4 discs-discs are cracked. This is a guy who I trust fully. Now have spent $7000 doing all the items found in the PPI.new tires, brakes, etc plus short shifter, $1000 for detailing plus front clear wrap, $200 for stuck moon roof, now $5000 for clutch, flywheel, 4 brake disks and labor. And this is on a car that had 44K miles on it when I got it this fall-whine-whine-I know, Its a Porsche-yours in thrift-dr cheap
