May I know if chg drive shaft will they open the gearbox? Is so I also wanna buy a set of clutch set and ask them to help me install while changing the drive shaft.

tukar clutch memang must bukak.

My mechanic say is the drive shaft rosak.
Changing a pair of drive shaft + gear oil + gearbox oil seal ( forgot the name, some seal put at flywheel or clutch something.)+labour=RM650
Is it the price reasonable?
I recently replaced RH driveshaft for my 1.8. Driveshaft - rm175, Gearbox oil + labour is another RM130.

Go back to stock la. Excedy maybe too hard? I dunno. Get something with a lot of springs.

It's not part of the drive shaft replacement but if you wanna do it might as well do it together. Maybe save on workmanship
Exedy clutch got normal and performance mah. My VR have been on Exedy even since, very light only......

Yup, correct. Change drive shaft is one charge. To change clutch need to drop GB, different charge already......lol

Mine I juz consider to chg back to stock size. Although my friend call me to upgrade to a 8&8.5 inch clutch. What are the difference?
I mean 7.5 inch vs a 8 & 8.5 inch clutch
Most people go bigger for more contact. Unless your mod your engine until so powerful the clutch slips, then probably can consider. But if not, why bother, wasting time and money. Like I mention, even after my engine swap to 200bhp, still using normal Exedy clutch only......lol
