39,000mi. bone stock motor. IDK what happened needless to say I'm pretty bummed. I've only had the car for a year and just got motivated to "mod" it, getting the frpp suspension and ses parts over the last couple weeks. I wanted to either turbo it or go na, but am kind of turned off from that now.

dont be turned off by modding.. this stuff is alot of fun plus showing off what you have done makes it all worth it that much more.. im not sure how good u are at driving stick but 39k that seems weird that ur clutch has already gone out.. maybe u should take someone for a ride and make sure ur not cooking the clutch. if not u should take it back to the dealer they should help u out..

Yeah, I've been driving a manual car for over 12 years now so I don't think it's me. Lol.

Also, I know modding can be a lot of fun. I've built a couple turbo hondas and a 400whp srt4. I was just kidding about being totally turned off but it it shitty timing

39K for a clutch is a bad hand. I got 87k on my sedan (and I've towed bikes and quads with it) and have been blessed with a nice pedal so far. Hopefully its something simple and dumb to fix. I also want to turbo mine :)

How many miles were on it before you got it? You might be good with a clutch but the previous owner might have cooked the hell outta it.

<------ +1 for want turbo
