Re: T5 conversion

A few people around here have a Daiken (sp?) clutch on their T5's and they seem to work pretty good...fairly light and they grip like all hell aparantly.

Re: T5 conversion

yep - Daikin clutches rock!

heavy duty clutches in falcns dont go too well - it accelerates wear on all the other clutch components, pedal box, cable, throwout arm etc - generally not a good idea to get a traditional heavy duty one, but i cant get the daikin one to slip, and i have tried bloody hard - 126kw at the wheels, 225/65/15 brigestone GIIIs, a limited slip diff, a 60kg stereo weighing the back of the car down and many full-blooded clutch-dump launches on a drag strip havent fazed it...

Re: T5 conversion

what rollin said - too true. Dont know why they bother making a daikin HD for the falcon.....the standard is just fantastic. IMHO the pedal feel is the best.

Re: T5 conversion

Dayken are the anodised ones? I have one and although it didn't slip (polish ported EF etc.) it took a while to get the clutch right (cable adjustment). I can vouch for the non slipping and the great pedal travel now, it's barely (less than 1cm) higher than the brake and i don't have to push it all the way in to change gears. They are better then the ones strandard on XR6's imho

Re: T5 conversion

If you are doing the conversion look at the pedal box.. It's not that hard to weld a few pieces in there to threngthen it. I made up a bracket that went from firewall to bolt on inner guard to stop flexing and breakage there also. A new cable also helps as well, as the cable wears through plastic linner...

Don't be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark...Professionals built the Titanic!

Re: T5 conversion

You lot replaced the clutch and pressure plate with the Daikin ones, or just the clutch plate?
