what is needed to replace a clutch?

don't mean to be a n00b but my mechanic told me something about when installing a clutch on our cars you can't just buy a clutch? he said it has to be fabbed to a flywheel or something strange sounding....any truth to this? or can i just buy the clutch and have someone install it? my guess is he didn't want to do it or he is talking out his ass for more money... thanks.

Take your car to another shop because your mechanic sounds retarded.

The SRT-4 clutch is a modular unit. The mechanic removes the 4 driveplate-to-clutch bolts and then removes the transmission and the clutch assembly comes out in once piece. To re-install, he slides the new clutch assembly over the input shaft and then rebolts it to the driveplate with new driveplate-to-clutch bolts.

I highly recommend having your clutch release fork replaced, too. It's an additional $150 and ~30 seconds of labor.

On the contrary, I would highly suggest also swapping out your clutch release fork (also called TOB fork). Do a search on here, it's done by most people when doing a clutch swap because they tend to wear fairly quickly.

thanks everyone. that's what i thought. it's my dad's mechanic and i have a feeling he just doesn't want to mess with a 4 banger. so nothing over 6 hours, modular clutch, TOB, and money is all i need to get a good ride again? sick of this shit slipping at WOT...

is this the right clutch for a slightly modified car? i may go power upgrades later so i'm thinking 400ft lbs should be good enough for a car that may EVENTUALLY have about 350...CRK1001? for 400ft lbs? 479 bucks and that includes the TOB? anyone else have any experience with these clutches? thanks.
