clutch noise

The aluminum FW is solid and is noisy, I keep the clutch pedal depressed.

The noise is normal, sounds kinda like gears.


Dirtbrown, chatter is a vibration while first starting out, you will ocasionally experience this as well with this setup. brat was asking about a noise at idle.

Yea it's normal, a bit annoying but normal.

Welcome to the Forums by the way, if you have any other performance questions, check out the SVT performance chat or if you have questions about your nitrous set up, check out Forced Induction chat.

My stocker has been chattering since I got it..just a little bit when it's in neutral and disengaged. I've heard it's a super common problem.

Yes that is more common with the higher stages and race clutches.
