What are the chances that the clutch is damaged? Is there anyway to inspect it? I've got half a mind to replace it for insurance, but I'd rather spend the money on some ET's or an XE268. What about the bell housing - is the crack repairable?
It looks like the fingers on your pressure plate got pretty chewed up. I would replace it just to be carefull. If you are racing it at the track I think it is time for a scatter shield the bellhousing can be fixed but it is a good excuse to change it.
I would like to go ahead and replace the bellhousing with a Lakewood piece and don't mind the investment in the clutch as long as it fits into longer term plans. I'd like to change out the T5 for a beefier trans and possibly a T56 to get the extra overdrive at some point. Just not prepared right now to fork out the cash for the whole enchilada.
Is there a "upgrade path" where I can use the newly bought bellhousing and clutch later with another overdrive trans? If not, I'm considering buying a new fork and putting it back together as is.
