Stage1 or Stage 2 must be good enough.
Stage 3 is for race spec.
What is Peter suggesting??

It was replaced under warranty right? Swift does have a clutch problem and MUL do replace under warranty. It's just that you have to make them, they wont do it just like that.

Swift clutch packing up so soon ???? Why have they put in a bad quality component in an otherwise very successful car........I am sure if one makes enough noise, they will change it under warranty, no one wants bad press or do they ......especially with the SX4 round the corner. It might be helpful making a noise.

Cheers

No, i havent used it. But, have driven some cars and a lot of them here with souped rides use them.
Another good brand is Exedy which is a regular with our bangy boys.

Hey even i had a similar problem with the clutch, but only after 25,000km and that also after, i confess, many burnouts! I haven't been able to find much on aftermarket clutches for swifts specific. Only option i went for was a clutch overhaull n quite a notable difference in torque.

Exedy and Daikin are the same. Exedy is the brand and Daikin is the manufacturer. The stock replacement will be good enough for your car, and then some. But argue with MUL and get it replaced free.

Slightly OT: What does a performance clutch (Spec/Exedy etc) accomplish over the OE ones?
If there is a thread that explains the mechanics and the pros & cons, would appreciate a link to it, because I couldn't find one.

Ok this is real sad!! :(

My car go towed at 8pm on Sat night. I asked them if they will work on the car on Sunday, to which the ans was obviously a NO. So i told them that i'll come on Mon morning to the workshop after which they can start working.

On Mon morn, i called the workshop office at 8.45am telling them i'll come at arnd 10am after which they can start the work. So by the time i got there (11am) they had already pulled out the new clutch and the new one was pretty much in. The lady at the front office didnt pass t msg to the mechs so all this $hit!. So after talks n fights n arguements with the MUL guys, there was no way they will agree to take back the clutch they had put in. It was kind of a scene over there, and had no choice but to take t car back with the oe clutch

The total bill came upto Rs.28xx for the clutch replacement + labour + 2nd service(free) which was kinda cheap.

I apologise to everyone i had called/pmed regarding the clutch and in the end coudnt buy it.
