My clutch is just about dead. I am hoping someone around here has some sort of connection for a shop that can hook me up a little:) Or anyone that has done a ecotech clutch themselves?? Any help would be awesome

I know a few places for tranny work. No amazing deals but better than just a walk in price.

Get a SPEC 3 clutch and you won't have to worry about burning it out for a while.
(unless of course your pushing more than 459 ft/lbs of torque)
As for places to have it done, I don't know of any I would recommend. I have a friend that works at a Pontiac dealership who I trust to do things correctly, But the dealer cost is up there.

The car is getting a 125 shot next year so that might work perfect

Clutch swap isn't too difficult. If you decide to do it yourself, only advice I have to offer is make sure to avoid getting grease on the flywheel, clutch disk, and pressure plate. If you cant avoid it make sure to clean all of it with brake cleaner before reassembly. Good luck.
