Alright,

So I am not sure exactly how to go about reviewing this combo seeing as I only have my stock clutch to compare it to. Considering my clutch started to slip, the difference is amazing. The pedal feel is tight but not stiff. When I want to shift, it is there immediately, giving me a definite edge in acceleration over the stock. The best way to describe the feeling is that it has significantly more "jump" when shifting properly. That being said, I killed it numerous times after first getting heheh. But after getting used to it, I love it.

NOTE: I also have been tinkering with the clutch adjustment, so pairing this with a new clutch/flywheel is enough to keep a smile on my face :)

In about a week, I'll post again with some MPG gains. I've had it on for about a week now but have been doing other things to the car so I haven't gotten a chance to record the mileage properly.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer them to the best of my ability.

With the lighten flywheel and the less aggressive clutch, what's the drivability of the vehicle like? Previously, I've read with the fidenza and the stage 2 or 3 clutch, it makes its more difficult to drive around town and a lot more sensitive.

After the brief adjustment period, it drives great...definitely not too stiff/harsh.

Going from a normal to performance clutch is night and day.
The pedal travel from friction point to fully engaged is completely
different. You'll find it a little aggravating at first matching revs because
the new clutch is less forgiving, but time will heal this, and you'll wonder
why you didn't do it years ago!
