SVT Clutch Problem.

So I had a new CM stage III install maybe 2 weeks ago. So a day ago I was driving and the shifts were a little hard to get into gear. Okay, next morning I knew I had to take it in. On the way it got harder.

Now here is the kicker, when the car is off it will run thru all gears no problem. Anyone ever had this problem? I need to know before I have these guys pull the tranny out(and no I dont mean shemale you goons, stop laughing).

Yes I have this installed professionally.
Yes I have babied the new clutch. No hard shifts and I don't think I ever got over 2500 - 3000 rpms.

And incase someone askes, I have a 02 SVT.

Help please!

I had those problems when my clutch was starting to let go. it was to get in gear when
the car was on, but when it was off I was easy.

Hmm I wonder what it is.

Mine does not slip. It got to the point where it will not go in gear when the car is on. Cables are all fine. Fluids are filled. ???????????????????

Wish I could help you dude. My clutch also kinda sucks but it's the OEM one and has never been replaced as far as I know so that's why.

Somebody be his hero!!!
