Clutch time for the C5

Looks like it's new clutch time for the C5. It's been chattering a bit for a while. However, yesterday I revved a bit and took off nailing the accelerator and the clutch started slipping badly.

Man did that stink!

The good news is it still seems driveable if I go easy on it. I guess I'll have to get it into the shop and spend some money.

Just goes to show, you gotta pay to play!

Go with either a SPEC stage 2 or a stock Z06 clutch. My buddy Nate at Nasty Performance can set you up... (815) 458-4858 tell him I sent you...

The Chevy dealer tells me the Corvette and the Z06 share the same clutch.

C5

Hey man I roll in a Quick Silver Metalic convertible with a black top. How about yourself? Prob seen you around and didnt know it.

How often do you drive your C5? Ever since I picked up my bike I only drive the C5 if the weather is going to get to cold or when a lady and I are dressed up to go out. Skirts dont work to well on a bike

If your really, really hard on your cluth I've seen something like 12 plate clutches out there. Wasnt cheap however.

It's a Black 2000 Coupe. It's my daily driver when not on the bike. I'm not that hard on clutches generally.

Interestingly enough, it seems to be holding pertty good. I'm figuring around $1500 parts and labor to replace it. This could be a little more depending on what clutch I end up using.

I've owned a couple of Fords so don't even get me started.

Yes. The CURRENT C5 and Z06 share the same clutch. I believe that this was as of 2002 - they did the same for the F-bodies.

Tho I guess they'd probably supercede all PN's to the new one...

Ah...

So they've apparently figured out that they should use the same clutch? That's good news. The price for the new clutch kit is not that bad, less than I thought in fact. I was already bending over for the shafting I was about to get.
