    Getting my clutch replaced today!

    So I have a 2006 CTS 3.6 6 speed. I got a valeo clutch since it had good reviews and amazon had a black friday sale on it for $175 plus shipping. The labor price is $270. They said that the flywheel may not need to be replaced but if it does then it is $640 from their hook up or $1200 from the dealership! Ill let you guys know how the valeo works out for me.

    Clutch is in and feels great! Great response, nice crisp grab (I stalled it in 1st and reverse once), and is great overall. Feel free to ask any questions!

    That's bunk. gmpartsdirect.com - MSRP for the 3.6 flywheel is $575, and they sell it for $341. newgmparts.com reports the same MSRP and sells it for $401. I know people love to complain about dealers being expensive, but there's not a friggin' chance a dealer is selling parts for double MSRP. GM would crush them.

    Fully agreed. Good to see you're up with the new clutch. Can't believe the options for the 3.6 guys seem to be more expensive then what the V guys can get a LS7 setup for.

    I wish that there were more performance options for the 3.6 but then again it isnt a v... but mine is a 6 speed so do I have the right to want more power?

    Well im at about 90600 miles and clutch still feels good. It lost its super grabiness that made it feel similar to my old mustangs racing clutch slightly. It now has a smooth grab and if your arent careful or paying attention it will give you a jerk (if you don't rev match properly). I am still glad that I went with this clutch.

    Still over paranoid about heat glazing it because that is what happened to my other clutch even though it was the previous owners fault. I just dont want it to happen again! Haha
