New one coming in. Stock
New Flywheel
New KY Stage 3 Clutch
New TO Bearing
New TTR Trans Mounts

I'm keeping the old one and am going to build it when I have time. I'll fix 2nd gear, install 4.45 gears and put it back in the car.

Maybe its been asked already but what kind of life expectancy would someone see out of the stage 3. I would say 80% of my driving is regular DD, 15% street racing, and 5% strip. What kind of miles would I expect 50k??

Expectations are biased on how you drive not type of miles... Meaning slipping, leaving Ure foot on pedal and keeping pressure on accident, take off ect.. now if u just did Hwy and just kept going. You'd never need a clutch lol.. as long as u didn't dog on it all the time. The main thing is breaking in... This helps life of clutch.

Break in period for any clutch should consist of mostly city driving... Meaning don't always do Hwy .. you need a lot of forced in and outs of pressure plate so it fully breaks in . So do about 300-350 city and 200-150 Hwy

Honestly. A guess is somthing I can't give since every clutch is different... Due to the person driving it. If you drive correctly and don't always dog it and are 100% the clutch can last forever. So it all depends on the driver. If the car is mainly Hwy driven it'll last a lot longer then a city because of the clutch engagments needed in stop and go traffic.

And this is for all clutches....

And this is for all clutches....

If I already have a brand new LNF TOB sitting here than there is no need to purchase one with the clutch right?

Are you doing this without dropping the whole cradle?
