WTB Clutch kit + flywheel, mine is toast

I told my mechanic a month ago that my clutch was slipping at high gears and high speeds. He test drove the car and couldn't get it to slip at the lower gears, and told me to downshift to get the clutch to catch again.

The clutch slip has been getting worse and worse. Recently, I've been smelling burnt plastic... It's time to get a new clutch (possibly mechanic too)

I took it to the mechanic and he quoted me ~3k for a new clutch and flywheel, including labor. **************** me




... SO:
if anybody has a used clutch kit and/or flywheel that doesn't have too many miles (or knows someone who does), please contact me!!!
I've also sent PMs to many of the listings here, but they're very old.

How about new? Vertex Auto has a Sachs clutch kit for $399, or Power Friction for $379.

http://www.****************************************.com/SubCategory/Transmission%20and%20Clutch/Clutch%20Kits.aspx

$3K to install a clutch kit seems very high. I received a quote for installing a clutch kit, along with an LN IMS retrofit kit, for a LOT less than that...

$770 in labor (7 hours at $110), $1000 for flywheel, $600 for clutch. Comes with a full year warranty.

Alternatively, I could buy the parts new from Pelican and save myself a grand, at the cost of not getting the warranty. Pelican sells flywheel for 700, clutch for 500. Still $770 in labor. A little over 2 grand with shipping and tax.

I wonder if I can find the flywheel on Ebay too...
