    opps..also wanted to add when you swap motors its a good suggestion due to the fact that the motor that will be going into the car is already out of the car and the labor to replace it is literally $0

    So... say I'm in 2,3,4,5, gear and floor the gas. The revs go up super high, but the car doesn't move faster. Would this mean that the clutch is gone? Or is the clutch still good since I have 1st gear? hahahaha I hope it lasts a couple more months, until I can do the swap!

    sorry to thread jack but can you replace your clutch on your stock engine and still keep it when you swap in a new engine?
