Oh, installed would be much more than that, I would think, unless you have someone local who does it for very cheap. The dealer will charge $1000, most speed shops $800, and a few rare places may do it for $600 at least in my experience living on the East Coast and now in CO after doing 2 clutch installs.

The six puck is sprung... like me.

Me and a buddy of mine just installed my Exedy Twin a couple weeks ago. Let me tell you, it's a world of difference. If you don't want to worry about messing with your clutch again, go with the Twin. I wasn't trying to spend that kind of cash either, but I decided that the alternative, purchasing another clutch, was worse.

$400 and $500 are great deals - wish we had such a thing where I live (and have lived). I paid my local sponsor $300 because he was booked and had to push all his customers back a day to fit me in.

Unfortunately, now that I lost 4th gear in the 6spd yesterday, I'm going to have to ask again. At least this will allow me to get my first Shep tranny and install the Exedy Carbon Twin in the garage.

Yeah, I should state its actually $0 since I will be helping larry with his install and mine will be going in at my garage. I am hearing alot about 4th gears going out on the 6spds now. I hear its the lack of lubrication and the thinner gears on 4th, 5th, and 6th. Guess I should install a trans cooler when the clutch goes in.

Yes, I'm #4 now, and it's starting to happen more often it seems. I will be getting a trans cooler setup from VIP Garage along with a beefier 6spd, although I guess I should consider a 5spd, eh...

Amazing thing to me about the 4th gear is that GEARS over on EVOm warned that this was going to happen not long after he bought his MR when the MR's first came out. After taking apart the 6 speed and comparing it to the 5 speed he mentioned the close spacing of the gears on the shaft being a problem along with the gear itself being narrower than the 4th gear in the 5 speed.

Yep, and he was right...I personally wasn't surprised, since I knew his synopsis and had seen it happen to others already.
