Installation Time: Less than 1 Hour

good bang for your buck
I installed the SR Performance clutch cable, quadrant and fire wall adjuster in about 45min start to finish.my reason was bc my clutch pedal was notchy throughout the throw of the pedal. I wasn't 100 sure if this was my issue but having 2 two others the both eventually had issues witht he quadrant and cable, it was an upgrade i plans on doing anyways and it fixed my issue 100 my clutch is now silky smooth all the way through. i did run into three minor issues.
the first one was the end of the cable not fitting into the firewall adjuster till I called and was told to shave the 3 nubs off the end of the cable that hold the spacer that is used when not installing the fire wall adjuster. while its not a huge issue , the instructions should state this as it comes as a kit and it was frustrating after trying to jam the end into the adjuster for 10 min only to find out i have to shave my brand new cable. again not a big issue just bought i would save the rest front the aggravation.
the second one which I think is just a poor design is where the lock down screw is located. in some pictures on the sight it looks like there is plenty of room to get to it but the only way to access it is a small allen key and small turns at a time. It should have been located on the bottom side so it could easily be accessed and turned. again not a big deal as once its set your good but just a thought.
the last issue again was a minor issue but something that could easily be changed. the original cable can be slid up and out of the small hole to lock the two nuts together and then put back through the large hole and slid back down into the smaller hole where the cable rests in. this cable was to large to slide down the slot in the shift form to the smaller hole so i had to push the shift fork and wedge a pry back in the bell housing while i locked the two nuts together. not a huge issue but another poor design .
I would recommend having slightly larger screws as the small ones that come with it easy strip and then do not get tight if the hole is a tad to big. also getting your hands in there to turn the screw heads is nearly impossible if you have large hands like i do so i put a slightly bigger screw with a 10mm head on it so i could use my magnetic socket and stop dropping the screws. you could also use some dum dum or something sticky to keep the screw secure in the socket while you locate the hole.
over all the parts are very good quality and makes the clutch feel 100x better then factory on top of being able to fine tune where your clutch engages. im not sure if I am the only one who ran into these issues or if its just this specific setup but again everything is high quality and work great together. im giving this product a 5 star ratting because im rating it on its performance and quality and not the little minor issues I ran into, after all it is aftermarket and these are the kinds of things you run into.
