The spring center clutch is a direct, drop-in replacement. It requires no additional parts or modifications to work perfectly.

Every clutch replacement does need to have the pressure plate replaced and the flywheel at least re-finished. Any shop trying to sell you a clutch job without replacing the pressure plate and refinishing the flywheel should not be allowed to work on cars. For that matter, if they recommend no replacing the throw-out bearing (release bearing in the UK) they shouldn't be working on cars. Other things could be optional but those three (release bearing, flywheel re-surface, and new pressure plate) are absolutely essential.
Shifting is an art. Learn it, love it, live it.
