Installation Time: Shop Install
Installation Cost: $500-$1000

Not for the faint hearted
Quite a challenge this one - RAM technical help saying one thing and AM saying another.
If you are looking for a straight replacement for your stock clutch think hard about paying the full (exorbitant) price a dealer will set you back. Clearly if you know what you are doing then this route is certainly cheaper BUT only if you have the know how to install yourself. My install set me back $500 labor and the shop wanted to charge nearly double that given how difficult it was to install.
RAM technical help line did warn - after I bought the kit - that they did not recommend this kit as a replacement for the stock 2 plate clutch
Strong left foot. Coming days will tell as the clutch beds in, but initial findings are that the clutch needs a strong left foot - I'd say its 30 to 40% heavier to engage than the stock - what gives me heart is most of the on line blogs say the clutch should be no heavier than stock - so hope it improves with use.
BOTTOM LINE : NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED but can save a ton of money.
