so does any one know if this will fit a 04 redline also? from what i noticed their isnt any difference between the 04 and 05+ redlines transmissions (internally) cause all of the other clutch companys say the their clutchs work from 04+ i emailed CED to see what they say.
Yea if it works out i plan on keeping it..
Hopefully i will have my trannies switched out and i will let you guys know what i think about this clutch.
My tranny shipped out today.
My price for saturn parts would have been like 490$ for stock parts and with this clutch kit the same parts is 258 roughly.
i was on stock clutch. no slippage at all launching or roll races or power shifting nothing! then i added the 45wet shot and it just would slip going into 2nd then spraying or sometimes spin all of 2nd and then i would shift to third around 60mph or so and it would just slip all of 3rd. personally i think you need a decent clutch or at least brand new clutch to support spray. when you run spray your pushing 300torque and 300whp pretty dang quick (at like 4k rpm's your already over both those numbers).
when you run a turbo car that is laggy it doesn't get all it's power until the top rpm's so it's chance of slipping is less. at least that is what i make of it. some guys run stock clutch on a turbo setup and are just fine b/c it's so laggy and it's a gradual up in hp. when your running spray you click that damn button at 3k rpm's and your wide open throttle you got it all coming at you all at once so it's a big hit on the clutch.
btw my stock clutch is fine on gm stage 2 + 2.80 pulley i still have it and when i sell the car or if i messed up my spec stage2 i'll put it right back on and it will not slip at all anywhere
Car in question: 2006 Ion Redline, 120,000 miles, manual transmission, 100% original, no warning lights.
Ok folks, I know there are many threads about the faulty cruise control on our cars. I looked at a bunch of threads, and even went to the regular Saturn forums. So...my initial problem...
I have a clunking noise in the front end when I turn the stearing wheel and upon acculturation and chatters when I hit bumps plus the transmission is starting to slip and sometimes grinds when shifting it is a automatic trans and the car has 165000 miles on it what should I do
