Question stock clutch, fidanza flywheel??

I was wondering if the stock clutch would work just fine with the aluminum 12lb. fidanza flywheel? My SVT clutch is out and has never had that TSB done, just found out about it! The thing is that my fidanza flywheel is on its way already, have not ordered clutch yet. If ford decides the TSB to be done, would they install fidanza in for me. But I have a feeling the dealer is gonna give me crap since my clutch is out at 54,000 miles. Who knows?

My clutch is on the verge of going, @ 61,000 miles.. i JUST got the new one delivered today. If i were you since they're going to be throwing in the new flywheel, might as well get a performance clutch to go with it. Get it all in one go instead of doing it again down the line.

But since I'm still under warranty, would this TSB go into effect for me. I heard of people geting a new, updated clutch and flywheel from ford free of charge or just some deductible. That would be great for me. I would save some money. I know of performance clutch and flywheels advantages but that can wait for me. I'm wondering if you had that TSB done? And what clutch and flywheel you going with?

more than likely, unless the dealer is really and i mean really cool they will not put a aftermarket flywheel in and do it all for free under a warrenty claim, the dealer gets to charge ford motor company for the costs of doing warrenty work so by you haveing a flywheel already is not saving them any time or money. But if they are cool you might be able to get something done.

more than likely they will come with some crap but hoping they don't. if they don't ill try one more dealer. give up and then get that same set up, clutchmasters stage 1 and fidanza flywheel. post on clutch/flywheel combo thread. i was wondering, how much you gonna pay for labor on that clutch/flywheel job? If I purchase same, comes out to $760 for parts and $400 labor.

darkproximity, if you check out the thread "post reviews of clutch/flywheel combo" just about everyone paid between $750-$850 for parts, and labor between $350-$450. and not everyone got their parts at the same place. so almost any where you pay this for performance clutch and lightweight flywheel. everyone was over the $1000 mark unless they installed them (crazy)selves!
