you would think that the false floor would vibrate and buzz

The trick is to have the music louder than the rattle. If you can't hear it - it doesn't exist! :yeahyeah

my recommendation is always to substitute the g10 flywheel for a g13 flywheel and then use the larger clutch kit.

the g13 fywheel is inherently lighter than the g10 flywheel by about 3 pounds and the larger friction surface wears longer and clamps better.

i have this kit in my blue turbo3 and my red twincam verts. it's super silky and handles the torque very well.

Not sure what the mileage was....it should have been close to what was on the inspection report paperwork I gave you :-) I didn't drive it much after that.
