privman, why are you getting those subframe bolts? Dropping the subframe is NOT NECESSARY.

They say it's easier. I don't want to damage the stuff putting it back in

Actually it isn't. I would suggest removing the throttle pipe though. More clearance and less chance of damaging it during removal/re-install of the tranny.

Nope. That's the trade-off. Either drain the tranny fluid and take out the axle flanges or drop the subframe and take it all out. Tried for a couple hours with a friend, a lift, an engine bar and a tranny lift but we couldn't get it to fit without doing one of those two things.

Okay thank you. Are those the correct set of bolts I need for sub frame?

Stage 3 clutch

i just installed my stage 3 clutch this past weekend and i was able to remove and install the transmission with out removing the axle output flange nor the subframe. removing these is a luxury and provides room to drop the trans and i would probably recommend to do on any future installs.

Does this job require a new clutch disk and new flywheel?
