Think I should replace the guide tube. It has some pretty deep scores on it?

I ran a JB aluminum flywheel with South Bend's stage 2 daily kit with a sprung hub disk. Take my word and steer clear away from this setup. I'm planning on making a separate thread once the situation is sorted.

Was it the flywheel, clutch or both?

Default Clutch and Flywheel Recommendations

I just weighed the DKM LTW Steel Single Mass. It weighed 23.2 lbs. My OE DM weighed 24.9 lbs. I guess they were shooting for a 2 lb reduction from OE.

The problem was with the clutch kit. I think the flywheel, being single mass and lighter, accelerated the issue.

All the numbers matches and you can see where they dremeled off the BMW markings.

So what's your take on the DKM kit after a couple months? Did you go with stage 1, 2, or 3?

Stage 1. Havenít driven it yet. Have the rear sub frame out now. The transmission is in. Clutch pedal is a bit stiffer and it appears as though itís going to release quite low to floor. Iím not sure I have all the air bled out though.
