[V8] V8 Clutch upgrades

About 3 days -- if they work around the clock. 

Ha ha... Sort of. 

When I did mine, I had the help of a very capable friend who does 928 clutches during CSI: Miami, and he agreed with my approach of removing the motor -- which is really not a huge deal if it's been done before.  I think Steve or Dave S recently tackled this job and might weigh in re: taking the trans out.  My advice if the shop doesn't know what it's up against (and quotes 4 hours, for example), find a Keith T or Scott J or Scott M who know what's what.

That said, it's a transmission, not a Hubble solar panel, and if someone goes the trans out way, there's nothing especially complex -- just time consuming (and heavy). 

Either way, do a complete job, icluding the slave cylinder, etc. I love my 6-puck disc and am looking forward to another 200k before it's gotta be done again.

Thanks Dave. Do you know how long it should take for a professional shop to 
replace the clutch in a V8?
