Well its between a short shifter and rocket chip. I think i'm leaning more towards the chip. Is a clutch a hard thing to instal yourself?

Not bad if you have the right equipment - about a 4 hour job.. Your clutch getting weak?

No slippage, but it seems to release towards the top.Not sure if this really matters as it feels ok and not as bad as some.If I get a chip i'm guessing it will eat it up? or does that all matter in how I drive it?

A little list of things that want but not sure of the order I want them just yet:
Scangauge2
rocketchip 1,2 or 3 or what ever is out (depending on $$$ for new clutch)
boostgauge
short shift
gunmetal 17" rims (looks good on porcelain blue)
Leather seats
flares (possibly)
different cluster lighting
different Tails(still trying to decide on smoked or clear)
smoked or clear front bumper turns depending on the tails

I figure I can do at least one mod a month(possibly 2) and still have cash for unexpected problems,rent,food,weekend $$$ and other stuff I can't think of right now since I just woke up.Well until the summer is over anyway and I go back to school full time

I'm learning to live with my rocketchip! at first, i really stepped on it, and felt that i was losing too many MPG. I don't think I would want to be without it now. The engine response is good in a sticky situation!

This fella, Adam, was at a GTG I had. 724..539..1928 He sells Scangauge

The A4's have issues with clutch slippage. I am thinking the A3's have better clutches. You should be ok.

Yea thats what I'm thinking, plus a new cluch is only 180 or so, for a VR6 anyway.
Anyone know any good TDI mechanics in the burgh?I'd like to have my car given a good look over.

You will also need the G60 flywheel. Whole package is around $300, not including labor. pghPAtdi knows the details. I might be looking at this soon, myself.

I'm not far from greensburgh at all,just down 30 going towards the city,North Versailles.

I was under the impression that the A3s didn't need the flywheel?
I'll have to look into it a little more.

Any of yooos drive a black TDI?
I spotted one on the parkway outbound durring rush hour last week,seems they fell asleep at the wheel while waiting for triffic to move.
There are many TDI in pittsburgh,well many VWs anyway.

I had Jeff install a Rocketchip 2/3 switchable -on 2 now(to see how clutch holds out)-also had PP520's put in-no clutch slip yet @ 172k.I saw a post somewhere to check your clutch(mine is releasing near top also) is after you shift into 5th,as you are going along at steady speed-then punch accelerator hard-if your RPM's increase and you don't go any faster, clutch is near end. I don't think we need new flywheels w/ the A3's- they have single mass ones while the A4's have the dual mass ones-check w/ BleachedBora-I also think he has a special on clutch kits this month.
