If the kit came with the shim, use it. If you find that the clutch engagement point is too high in the pedal travel or the clutch slips any under load, remove the shim. I had to remove the shim to keep the clutch from slipping with my Spec 3.

well I Tested My Car Today With The New Flywheel From Fidanza, The Spec Clutch 2, And New Cylinders.
Obvious Like Other Ls1 Guys, In First And Reverse The Clutch Chatters (heard Its Normal). My Only Concern Is That...when My Clutch Pedal Is Not In And My Car Is On Idle, I Hear A Very Chatter But Not Loud...is That Also Normal?????
Home Boy Said It Is, But Just Want To Make Sure. Please Feedback!!!!
And When Im On Gear *ex: 3rd*, And I Slightly Step On The Gas Pedal, I Get A Shaky Feeling. Is That Normal Also???????????????

You can hear some clatter at idle with these cars from the factory...use of a lighter flywheel will add to this sound slightly. Where is the engagement and release point of the clutch? It should be at or near mid-pedal. Chatter is normal in 1st and reverse especially during the break-in period. As for the shaking you reference...under what circumstances does this occur? Let me know and I will be happy to assist. Thanks!

Did you get the flywheel and pressure plate balanced?? Thats always a good idea. The shaking under acceleration may be the result of an unbalanced assembly, but im no expert, just a thought.
