F40 Race Clutch Assembly

SKU: ZZ-F40CK-S3

$874.99 Sale price

Stage
Regular price $874.99

This is the perfect clutch upgrade for your '11+ 6 speed Regal/Opel Insignia or any Cobalt/Ion/HHR with our ZZP F40 transmission conversion.

We start with a Fidanza custom 1 piece aluminum single mass flywheel that only weighs 12.5 pounds, the stock steel dual mass flywheel weighs 26 pounds. This custom Fidanza flywheel allows us to bolt on a South Bend Clutch high performance pressure plate and disc that will work with your F40 trans. The one drawback of running this setup is since this flywheel is single mass instead of the factory dual mass it will have a noticeable rattling noise at idle.

Model:

Stage 3 comes with a 1600# pressure plate and full face ceramic disc. (supports up to 350 ft lbs)

Stage 4 comes with a 2100# pressure plate and full face ceramic disc. (supports up to 400 ft lbs)

Stage 4 plus comes with a 2300# pressure plate and full face ceramic disc. (supports up to 450 ft lbs)

This kit retains the factory F40 throw out bearing.

This is a complete bolt in assembly.
Torque Spec Flywheel to crank 39 ft lbs and 25 degrees with red Loctite. (OEM F40 flywheel bolts)
Torque Spec Pressure plate to Flywheel is 22 ft lbs.

Great Kit

Pros: - no slipping, once engaged, the clutch is firm! - clutch engages faster (so more skill needed to start off, no problem for me w/ 20 yrs on a standard transmission) - no real change in force to engage the clutch - shifts are faster now - install requires a 4 wheel alignment, pro for better driving (because you remove front drivers side suspension to remove the transmission)Cons: - the single mass flywheel 'rattle' is loud inside/outside at idle - depending on a few parameters, the 'rattle' is louder etc while driving These include: - loud at idle, in neutral, clutch released, under ~1100 rpm - break in, after the 1st 100 miles, the noise was lower (this could be a pro) - cold, when cold, definitely louder - as the engine/transmission warms up, gets quieter - for some reason TBD, 3rd gear is louder while cruising (2k rpm etc); goes away with power applied before shift to 4thSide the stock dual mass flywheel is designed to quiet the system (lower vibrations etc) the performance single mass flywheel (while weighing less and yielding more hp) doesn't quiet the system. This is a trade off to keep in mind for your install.For pictures and more, see my notes and post at the URL below.
