Question e36 CAI and clutch..

1.Hi there, my clutch bearing is dead ans I'll buy an OEM clutch/PP/bearing kit. The thing is that my clutch pedal is very hard.. which I find wonderful! Will it be the same with a new clutch kit?

2. I want to buy a CAI and I found the Cosmoracing one. Did anybody test it? (The normal model is 3" and the Evo one is 3.5"...)

My Bimmer is a e36 318Ti 1.8 M42 1995, thanks!

Do the 318's have dual mass flywheels ?

I looked it up and apparently it does have a dual mass flywheel. I personally would not keep this flywheel. I'd buy an aftermarket flywheel and clutch. The labour is the majority of the work here and dual mass flywheels are only meant to last as long as the clutch.

Oh that's bad.. how much does a dual-mass flywheel cost? :/

Well I wouldn't recommend replacing it with another dual mass. I'd replace it with a lighter single mass.

Pedal resistance will be depend on the spring plate you put in.
