    If what Mike is saying is coming straight from the horse's mouth or in this case, the guy who designed and built the clutch, then I'd be inclined to believe it.
    Your going to make him leave the site......again.

          See why do you have to be like that. Because people don't agree with you...anger and hatred comes to the table? You can't throw those temper tantrums every time somebody disagrees with you man.

              Tyler my man it seems like your losing your cool. Calm down. Listen it would appear that it was just you and me having this discussion about the ClutchNet clutch no one else. I'd also go ahead and say MY points (again not "you guys") are rather valid and I never claimed to know it all. In your post your acting as if everyone here on CEG was questioning you, I actually bolded and colored your statements above. It is JUST ME, not EVERYONE. I know you had a ClutchNet clutch first, never disputed it and it's actually why I went with one because you've had such good luck with it. I've also been keeping my replies to your posts reasonable in the argument/debate I wish you could have done the same. When you blow up in your posts like that then you bring on the fire and everyone starts flaming. If you are that passionate about it, which I know you are, you can just PM me if you want to go crazy with it.

              I also accept your apology, if you have anything else you want to discuss about the clutch just PM me and we'll take if from there. Everyone else lay off TRicker and try to stay on topic. I'll post more updates as they come, which most likely will be Wed.

              Tyler here is that picture I promised. My last point on the matter... debris could get trapped in the cavities where the window use to be. Not saying it will as I would think there should be enough open area for it to clear, but it's possibly and that's all I was trying to say earlier and that is why they have the windows there (ignore the dust in the pic )

                  • Engine Update

                    Well guys I just dropped off the block and crank at Wagamon Bros. My K1 rods are scheduled to be delivered today from UPS as well! So Friday I will be bringing the rods, heads and bolts to Wagamon Bros. at which point they will wet measure the cc's of the heads, weigh the rods, and determine the appropriate dish size for my pistons. Then they will hone out the block and order the pistons. The pistons will most likely take 2-3 weeks from CP, but the machine work will be done on the block by next week. I better test fit my turbo piping this weekend and then start pulling my 2.5L out. I might be able to get my car out for paint yet before the end of December! This is moving a lot faster then I thought it would!

                    I'll take pics of the rods and post them when I receive them today.

                      • Those look weak. Your car is still going to be slow. Your t-red svt is ugly expecially with all your gay powder coating done. You will be using your new fancy engine as a paper weight soon.


                        But anyway, good luck ;)

                              Haha. Yea as you can see from the picture I install everything with plastic bags as so I don't get anything on my hands. I figure the plastic will tear off and work its way out in oil changes

                              I'm actually debating about having Wagamon Bros. just build the short block for me. They will have my entire engine at their shop minus the timing components come Friday anyway. However he was saying it would be an additional $300... and for $300 I think I can take a morning out of one of my weekends to put everything together myself. I really don't feel like throwing $1k for just labor on this engine. Especially when I have the tools and knowledge to do it myself.

                              Only thing that will be different for me with this engine is that K1 does not recommend using plasticgage for checking bearing clearance on their rods. They say to take a micrometer and measure the crankshaft to ensure I have the proper bearing clearance. They recommend 0.001" per inch of crankshaft diameter when measuring from the crown of the bearing.

                              • Errrr I think I would have the pros do that. Just for peace of mind so you know its done right/perfect and it will be under warranty. 300$ isn't that much when you consider what it's going to cost you if something goes wrong
