If possible, I would look to have it adjusted instead of replaced. It would be hard to believe that the clutch could be shot so soon but perhaps it's your sytle of driving.My brother in law who is a mechanic recently drove my car said my clutch is shot. It does grab kinda high, but I don't think its slipping yet. Has anyone had to replace their clutch on their IS250? If so, how much did it cost ya?
any update for this???Don't worry, I'm still working on it. I'm very happy with the results and my car is honestly so fun to drive I'd rather spend my time doing that. With just intake, lowered stance, and this clutch/flywheel with some buttery Redline MT90 GL-4 gear oil its all butter baby. Best thing I did besides this clutch/flywheel was finally getting the balls to get the GL-5 gear oil out and going with the MT90 which is designed for toyota transmissions. My 2nd gear goes right in no matter how fast I throw it and it doesn't crunch or grind anymore. But this thing f'in revs now. With the 20 lbs in reduced mass I can just blow through these gears not to mention great launches with the stage 3 clutch... I pulled a half car on a G37 at a light running first all the way out with him. That would never happen with the old setup. God I just think back to how long it took for that clutch to sweet talk that heavy ass flywheel off the line alone. I'm making changes giving feedback, the only thing i don't like about the setup is that it is a little noisier at idle and if you don't run each gear up enough to where the rpm in the new gear is above 2500 rpm you here the springs on that stage 3 clutch gripping as the is250 motor doesn't have the torque below 2500 rpm.. If you drive the car correctly you will never feel this is a problem and it has its benefit as alerting you when the motor is bogged which is loading the rod bearings heavily.
