    The stage 2+ is more like stock. The 3+ has a harder pedal feel but not bad compared with act. That noise you have is weird. I never had that on my car after the spec combo install. Also the 3+ is very grabby compared with oem, you have to get adjusted to it.

    Yea the noise is definitely weird. Again that's good to know that what i'm feeling is normal though. Launching I don't do often but when I do I don't usually drop the clutch cause I don't want the drivetrain taking all the shock at once. I usually slip it out so that the car launches without bogging but without burning the clutch either. Getting started is definitely the hardest thing with this clutch. I think you're right you either go in or out if you keep going back and forth and feathering it will stall which keeps happening to me. I'm finding that I just have to rev more than I normally would then let the clutch out at a moderate pace

    idk who told it was like stock but I'm probably the one of the first to installed that clutch and its just like how you described. i had to learn and adapt to it it has 2 position either you push it in or out and if you try to slowly lift your foot your stall every time lol idk what that noise is btw my flywheel rattles but it doesn't sound like that

    Ok good to hear it's normal. I did notice another weird thing today though... At idle with the car out of gear I hear a squeaking sound from below, but as soon as I press on the clutch even the lightest bit it goes away. I don't even have to depress the clutch pedal I just have to tap it to the point where the dead space on the pedal is gone and you start pushing with pressure. here's a vid below. At the end I also tried to show the chatter

    That's how the pedal feels on a stage3+, the spec feels a lot better than act. the engagement point it is higher and it'll stay the same even after break in. Make sure you break the clutch in for 600-700 miles with lots of downshifting.

    Taking in consideration first what @stangorang "experienced" as he replaced hardware that would have had a direct affect on the problem if the hardware was faulty. However hardware was not the case. Similar experience from @SteveAZ , no matter what hardware changes were done the results were still the same. For me I have 65K miles on my car, and the dealer replaced the injector with the newer ones when I was at 49k miles. It wasnt needed it was just something done I wouldnt have to worry about. My car does not sit, it is driven eveyday mostly highway milage I have the orignal o2 sensors when I bought the car new. I am not cattless, I am running CP-e Highflow Catts with stock mid-catts. Mid-catts will be removed befor the end of the year. I doubt seriously a faulty o2 sensor is the issue, as my AFRs are perfectly on target After increasing the scalar in the "cell range" where the concern is being had STFT bank 1 improved but I could not see bank 2. After logging STFT bank 2 that is where the major problem was and a significant gap between the two banks So I raised the "cell range" of cocern in STFT bank 2 from 1.256-1.240 to 1.296-1.280 and the gap between the two banks was reduced http://datazap.me/u/buraq/bestmode-32?log=0&data=2-13-14-15 Now considering alex@ABRhouston perspective, if I am not mistaken, making the process more rich should render positive affect on the trims. My trims start to max out at the "begining" of WOT. I asume the the DME looks at the Fuel (Spool) table first ? I will start with the Fuel (Spool) first in making it run more rich before the Fuel base takes over. The Cobb OTS table from its E30 map is more lean from the stock, so I am going to revert back to the stock Fuel (Spool) table and work with that as a guide and see what happens I will make sure to also log LTFT banks 1 & 2 next time.

    Hey guys so I just got my car back yesterday from having the Spec stage 3+ clutch and Steel SMFW installed and I have a few questions. So first of all my pedal is pretty stiff. I wouldn't say it is necessarily over the top but it is much stiffer than I expected after reading that it is barely more than stock. Now my biggest concern is the engagement point. I made it a point to tell the shop to use the low TO bearing position so they definitely did that, however, my clutch still engages at the top. I would say 9/10 of the way up is when it starts to engage. Without my clutch stop it was a paint to drive but now that I put it back in it's a bit better. I spoke to the shop and they said that it was normal with a performance clutch like this to engage high and as it gets broken in it will get a bit lower? I only have around 140 miles on it so far so i'm not complaining just want to see if this is normal and the engagement point I should expect out of it. Thanks in advance for anyones help

    Are the other platforms you tuned direct injected high compression turbo motors? If not throw it all away and just sit back and learn. Either from asking people who have lead the way on these motor ala PTF, BMS, etc, or from slowly moving forward. But taking your 10 years of tuning other platforms and trying to apply it blindly to this one is going to lead to some grenaded motors. The saying always holds true and does so even more on this motor. Boost doesn't break motors, timing does.

    great build, look forward to seeing it run. my personal experience with the AEM FIC 8 is that it is not compatible with the siemens mss50 dme. hopefully you manage with it.

    cadillacgrills started a thread half axle help... in N54
    Didn't think I had enough to do this...but my right axle let go last night, best part was i was out of town and had to leave the car 2 hours away. I've searched and seen plenty of info but wanted to get some input from you guys who've been through this. From the pic, looks like the joint was the weak point? is it possible to rebuild this? Looks like DSS shafts are the best upgraded solution but i believe they require a working assembly to upgrade rather than a replacement shaft correct? At this point, i just need to get the car back here and thought i would just replace it with oem and then focus on upgrading later. Anyone know the best place to get a replacement cheaper than local dealer?? i've checked a few vendor sites and can't seem to find them.
