Question clutch kits

i have a 92 non se hatch and i just replaced the clutch master cylinder with a new nissan master cylinder. the problem is that my clutch is now beginning to slip when i try to speed up quickly. if i let off the gas it grips again. what does this problem sound like? Nissan dealer wants $129 for parts and $815 to do the whole clutch install. are aftermarket clutches any better than oem? if anyone's in New Jersey and has an idea, let me know.

Lol yes aftermarkets are definatly better. New master clyinder and a now slipping clutch means the free play needs adjusted. Look on the part where it connects to the pedal there will be a nut. Loosen that nut and then turn the shaft until you get the desired free play. Retighten the nut and you'll be good to go. As far as clutch install goes for when you do want it done...do it yourself it's easy. Drop the transmission, unbolt the pressure plate, remove old clutch. Resurface (or replace if you've got cash) flywheel, bolt new clutch on (making sure to use the alignment tool)...replace throwout bearing, apply lithium grease to moving parts (clutch fork pivot, inside the throwout bearing and the thing it's on) bolt up transmission, hit the road.

Shouldn't be too much, don't know for sure because I've never had it done. Yes exedy is a very good clutch, not for hardcore but if you're just learning or playing around with drifting it'll do fine.

We're sponsored by Excedy (most of our guys are), stage 1 is ok, but for a lil more $ you can get the stage 2 which is comming out in July. Its slightly cheaper than the stage 2 version from ACT which takes more abuse, but since we're sponsored by Excedy... Good choice! LOL

To Preston, thnx for reminding me about the grease... I almost forgot about the GREASE! LOL

Flywheel resurfacing should not cost more than 50 bux from any machine shop.

hey thanks for the info guys. it helped me out a lot. the kit is in and it is nice, smooth, and fast. the clutch pedal is a bit softer to step on then before the install and it grabs high, but at least i dont grind any gears or anything crazy. it freakin works is all that matters. thanks again.

Centerforce sux. No grip. The dual friction grips but dies quickly under any kind of power.
