Clutch Upgrade suggestions!

Looking to upgrade my clutch! Anyone have a particular setup they are fond of. Preferebly one that doesn't take machining or a different bell housing! Also where you got it & how much? Thanks in advance

I like to use the early 911S lightweight pressure plate on a 914 flywheel that has been lightened 3 lbs. with a spring centered stock disc.

Check PP for prices.

Jamie, what problem are you looking to fix? Or is this just a "while it's apart, might as well improve it" kind of deal?

Stock setup with the 911 six-spring clutch disk is nice for a whoooooole lotta 914 applications.

Just seems to be engaging worse & worse lately. I adjusted what I had left but that wasn't alot. It's better but I am going to pull my engine to finish painting my engine bay. So while it's out I'll do the clutch. I'm also replacing all the linkage bushings & replacing the pedal assembly bushings with the brass setup. If that don't fix my problem I'm taking a sledge hammer to the leech. Well probably not but it's tempting every once in a while.

Try this:
Take out the center console and the carpeting over the center tunnel. Also remove the center "seat cushion" and change tray. Remove the two inspection panels at the front and the rear of the top of the tunnel.

Using a mirror or two and a flashlight or three, check the clutch tube inside the center tunnel. Take a look at it as you press the clutch pedal. If it moves, this could be your problem.
