Any good guesstimates on what an install (labor) price should be for a clutch?

$500 or so... Depends, usually if people are installing and purchasing parts with us we work a better deal. But that is about the range.

I put in a Hendrix Engineering Street Slayer twin carbon this spring and I love it. Very little break in, great street manners. It's a little more "grabby" than the other 2 clutches I had in the car, but nothing annoying, just have to hold the sticking point a fraction of a second longer.

Last weekend was the 1st of many trips to the drag strip I plan to abuse this clutch with, and it performed GREAT. (My last clutch, Centerforce Dual Friction single disk with steel billet fly wheel fried after 150 passes at the strip, and I could barely limp the car home with a slipping clutch.) Stock clutch had the "pedal sticking to the floor on hard launch" problem. I never had this with the Centerforce, which I had put in to address this issue, and have not had it with 7 trips down the 1/4mi so far with the HE.

This 2010 SS M6 is the first manual I've owned in like... ever. And the sad truth is I'm never going to be the best at things like getting going on a hill at a light behind cars, etc; I tend to let it slip too much and I'm afraid I'm burning out the clutch prematurely.
When they give out in a car like this is "just" a clutch kit usually all you need, possibly like the one recommended in an earlier post (Mantic ER2 Single Clutch Disc Kit)?

Thanks for all of the recommendations, everyone! I'm probably gonna go with the Mantic once I get set up with a shop. But I also have a feeling that it may not even be my clutch... It broke while I was in gear, there was no burning smell, it never slipped before, and it never grabbed high. Do you guys think it broke anyway or maybe it's the output shaft or something? What would cost more to fix?

Could be a slave cylinder issue. You need to remove the tranny either way so might as well upgrade while you're in there.

The dealer said it wasn't a hydraulic issue but they wouldn't open up the tranny for free so its on the way to a performance shop right now. Won't know anything till next week though.

So the shop that has my car (HPP) called me and told me they were rolling my car into the shop to store it for the weekend and they heard a clunking sound. They looked under it and saw in a matter of seconds that an axle was broken... It's amazing that the dealership supposedly put it on the lift and attempted to "diagnose" the issue but they best they could come up with was the clutch. I'm glad I decided to pay a real shop instead. Thanks for all of the suggestions though.

Matt @ FSP has been really helpful the whole time. I had actually ordered the clutch from him already and he cancelled it and took the hit on shipping because I didn't need it. So I'm buying the axles from him not only because of his great service, but also because his prices weren't beatable.

Aren't some dealers amazing? Glad you figured out the issue. And if you do decide to upgrade the clutch, I have the Mantic 9000 and it's a fantastic clutch. The fact that you get an SFI approved billet steel flywheel with it that only weighs 15 lbs makes it all the better. Here's a link to my project thread which shows the clutch and other things that might be useful to you:

I've been to your thread a few times, it's very informative and I really like what you've done with your car. I will definitely get the Mantic if I ever need a clutch, but does the single disc have similar weight savings or even better?
