clutch chatter

so ive been looking at a lot of clutch threads on here. im in the market for a new clutch/flywheel for the svt. mines starting to slip. im almost sold on the clutch master stage 1 w/ alu flywheel. good choice for dd and the occasional auto x?? there is a lot of talk about chatter from the flywheel at idle but nothing on how loud it is. ive come to terms with there being some noise with this upgrade and im ok with it for the additional performance....just wondering how loud that chatter is. what volume setting will i have to set the radio at before it cant hear it? 1.....5.....10?? figure thats the best way to figure out how loud its gonna be!! thanks

I accept the noise and don't deny thru audial interventions. Seriously, noise only heard at idle. It's not that bad.

It is a problem with most Foci.

It's not that bad as the others have said.

You will get used to it.

The noise far outweighs the benefits. I don't think I ever thought, " damn that chatter is annoying"
