I just did it over the weekend.. It does feel a little different. Shifts are smoother and the engagement is sooner.

$85 an hour. It took a lot longer than we expected.......but thats a whole other story: http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=332784

lol but he only charged me for 2 hours. I'm sure if you went to them, and told them I sent you, he'd charge you the same, and it would probably take less than an hour cuz they know what to do now. We just had trouble bleeding it cuz we didnt realize the "cutch reservoir" was empty.

You can always take your car to my friend's shop. He works on everything from Honda to Lambos. He is in wheeling.

Ask for Larry and tell him you know Chris.

How much did he charge you? I'm trying to figure out if it's worth getting it done or just doing it myself.
