Re: Best price on Bully or SPEC clutches??? (spoolin turbo s)

How? Very simple. I put the clutch in. Within about 1500 miles my tranny went out. Rebuilt the tranny and it went again in about 2000 miles. Rebuilt again, this time with a sachs stock replacement and never had a problem again. That how it blew my tranny dip****.

Re: Best price on Bully or SPEC clutches??? (ButteroJ)

damn dood relax... it is hard to grasp a clutch being the culprite to a blown tranny...
so anyways... spec makes alot of the clutch compainies disks and PP so whatever...
spec has a thumbs up in my book...
i can get the stage 3 and stage 4 kits for 228 flywheel for 390 bucks....
thats 6 puck disk, PP, and bearing...
you just have to find you a single mass flywheel for cheap (ecs isnt to bad)

Re: Best price on Bully or SPEC clutches??? (1.8T3t04e)

good friend of mine has the single mass spec setup in his c4 vette...

if i upgrade, i will grab one of their stg3 kits for the 6 speed (i think frankieB runs one ?... ask him)
w/ the eclipse, well my other friend has a stratus r/t (same clutch and pressure plate.. w/ the v6) and screwed up twice with the installation of the spec.. installed the pressure plate backwards... but he realized what he did
, and has been running it hard ever since

Re: Best price on Bully or SPEC clutches??? (ReverendHorton)

How bout Bully? Haven't found any prices on them yet. I haven't had time to check out the site but it looks like they have just part #s but I don't know which is the VR6 #. Anyone at least have that?

A clutch cant blow your tranny.... You blew your tranny.
I have a SPEC stg 3 in my car, holds the power I got well.
As far as customer service, they helped me out. I got sent the wrong flywheel. They overnighted me the right one then once I recieved I sent the wrong one back.
SPEC gets a http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif from me.

Sorry buddy, but the clutch did. They sent me too strong of a clutch for my car. They even aknowledged the problem themselves, and i sent them the part that kept breaking so that they could manufacture a stronger flexplate for me, but once i sent it out they ignored my calls.

Yes.
Thats the only reason a clutch would blow trannies. It engages to hard and abuses the gears. Could have also been installer error that causes this problem. If SPEC actually sent you the wrong clutch, then it is there fault. Cant argue that.
I do know that most Eclipse owners run the stock clutch or at least a solid disk clutch. Usually not a puck design. If they run a puck design it engages to hard and kills trannies, also makes the car harder to launch. Most of the DSM guys run stock clutches with high clamping force pressure plates.
