long story short trans was making sound like throw out bearing going out. so I ordered new excedy throw out/ slave cylinder and while I was doing this myself decided to replace flywheel with the spec aluminum flywheel and spec stage 1 clutch. pulled trans, swapped parts and test drive. car still makes noise (at idle sounds like loose bearing, push clutch pedal down goes away) I pull trans again replace pilot bearing palm to face should have done that first time around. Well all back together and problem still exist. I also get a small amount of knocking with a light load, low rpm like 2k and under. I've read somewhere that some of the v8 guys had the bearing fail on the input shaft going into the trans, has anyone experienced this. I'm afraid to take the car to the dealer with aftermarket parts that might cause them to not cover under warranty, and I really dont want to pull trans to put stock parts back it, but if I have to i will.
