sigh.. they're pretty much all the same mang. buy a chiltons or a haynes manual. NO WAY you should just go by direction on this site. get tips or something from here but as a first time R&R on a clutch you gotta have a manual or somebody with you. spend $10 on a manual and come here for tips. we'll be happy to help :)

and trust me you dont want 20 people telling you to 'do this', 'no do that first' while trying to figure out who to listen to.

I would recomend buying a HELMs manual. They have every little trq spec, and everything is printed in easy to read steps vs paragraph form like some manuals.

As for clutchs, get the same size that your car comes with. Also, call ahead and find a machine shop to resurface your flywheel. If you don't, your disc will take on the inperfections of your flywheel (basicly a mirror immage of your old clutch) and the life of the new disc will suffer.
