    Clutch & flywheel swap...how many hours

    How many hours would a typical garage allow or what sort of cost would it be, if I supplied the uprated parts?

    Myself and my dad changed my clutch and flywheel last year to a Helix organic clutch and lightened flywheel. it took us about 6-8 hours to do everything and we had a 4 post lift ramp.
    Take a look at the thread i done at the time.

    I remember looking at your thread mate.
    Just had another look and it's put me off no end lol.
    Will get a couple of prices then decide.
