    Pretty standard stuff. The flywheel I think is integrated into the clutch kit, so don't have to worry about that. Clutch replacement is generally a good time to replace motor mounts, shift linkage bushings, rear main seal, axle seals, slave cylinder, transmission oil. And don't forget the blue loctite on all the bolts

    What generation eclipse? 4 or 6 cyl?
    I did a 3rd gen 6 cyl w/o pulling either the trans or engine out. Just shifting the trans enough to get access

    Not too bad. Had some trouble juggling the trans back in..
    I built a plate to use the engine lift to lift it in from the top.
