Wotcha and welcome - sourcing a clutch is straight forward if you know what you want to spend, as mentioned scooby world do them




look at doing a flywheel skim to ensure all is good on reassembly and avoid premature wear


Yes you and you mate should get it done in a day at a garage with jacks, tools etc

As long as you've got a way to get the whole car safely high enough (front and back ) to clear the gearbox bellhousing you should be fine .

Get some fresh gearbox oil as you'll loose the old stuff if you remove the prop and a new genuine turbo outlet gasket.

I replaced the drive and propshaft seals , flywheel spigot bearing while I had the box off too .

Other than the fact that scoobs use a "pull clutch " so you have to remove the clutch fork shaft to separate the box and engine they're pretty straightforward imo .

I bought my 5 speed exedy pink box anti judder clutch from mark @ lateral performance (rated to 400hp)

And all genuine gaskets and seals from importcarparts .

I assume that you're currently running a tdo4 turbo ?

If so a standard tdo4 won't be able to break the 300hp barrier

Cheapest options for standard fitment turbos would probably be

Tdo5's good for 350 hp

Vf34 good for 340 hp

Vf 23/24/28 good for 320 hp

All approx depending on surporting mods of cause[emoji6]
