Vibrations ZERO. if anything it may be smoother
New pressure plate definitely changed the entire feel of the clutch. The oem one had POP to it so you knew where exactly to engage. This one now is linear so you have to just know when/where it wants to engage. Took only a couple days to get that under wraps. It's a tad bit stiffer, maybe 15% or something. It grabs pretty high up since the light flywheel as soon as it starts to touch its already beginning to do its job.
Nothing was changed when doing the clutch about the shifter. However I do have an INSANE shifter know made from Sphereology
That was one of the best mods I did for driveability
Car is definitely less smoth when getting into first gear. You gotta do it a little faster now so it's a bit tough to get going gracefully, But that will come with practice and the clutch still needs a ways to be broken in.
Car is WAY faster when u floor it now. 1st gear, 2nd gear and 3rd gear are night and day difference. Thats why I did this mod mostly!!! GAHGAHAHAHA luvvvvv it
When shifting really slow u just need to leave ur foot where it is for a fraction of a second to keep the rpms from falling like a rock then bouncing back up again. I was doing this a bit before with the oem flywheel cause of my Ktuner settings so I was already good at doing that. Now it's just a lot more necessary.
Do the rpm meet the gear more naturally? well yes cause the flywheel has less mass so there is less inertia to fight against which makes rev matching a hell of a lot easier. downshifting is literally like cheating now. Honestly I'm in heaven all over again with this car.
Next thing Ima do is remove the front license plate, add in my lower front grill and get the bumper repainted. Then She will be looking SWEET
