EA Clutch

I've noticed recently that my clutch seems a hell of alot lighter than other E-Series cars I've driven recently and I'm wondering if there may be a problem with the clutch/pressure plate. I've also noticed a bad vibration through the car sometimes when downshifting but all the engine, gearbox mounts and control arm bushes are all fine. I also seem to not be able to chirp/spin second gear in my car when I can easily do it in my mates car which is stock as a rock and has the same spces as mine.

Also will a clutch from a an EBII 4.0 fit in an EAII cos I can pick one up real cheap from a mate at work.

Re: EA Clutch

Daikin do a clutch that is very nicely weighted and sticks like you wouldnt believe - the friction plate is as big as its possible to fit on a stock flywheel and it rocks.

i have one in my car and im very imperssed.

Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!
