need to drop gearbox, not too big a job on a gtst, box is a tad heavy but i managed myself to lift it back in when on my chest lying under car. got an excedy racing clutch for about 300. from Japan Import Car ltd Skyline Parts Specialist/Breakers for my r32 gtr which will fit, think i paid about 250 for the excedy clutch for my gts wheni had it but wasnt as high a spec clutch as the one i got now.

depends if you do it yourself or not. lol
would say about 150 as thats a cheap quote i got for doing a gtr clutch which imo is about 10 times worse due to weight.

Incl VAT, i would say about £200 Labour. And as Richard says, no more than a 3 hour job really, even if the flywheel needs a bit of touching up.

For the top of the bellhousing you get use a bunch of extensions and access from the rear, for the starter motor ones you just need to persevere or make up a short spanner.

Put bottom starter motor bolt back in (to hold it in place) then either use a short 14mmm spanner, or a pivot headed 14mm ratchet spanner. It's a peice of cake.

Top bellhousing use an extension like the Partridge says.:wavey:

As above from cord when fitted my new clutch plates from RB. Use a small 14mm to break the lock of the screw. Also a woman's forearm to get up the gap helps if you want to keep your skin.

Refitting is a lot easier than taking out I found.
