GT JTD Clutch Replacement - Options

My clutch in my GT is heavy and the biting point is at the top of the pedal + the car has now done 135000 miles, so I think is due for replacement. I would like to know what my options are; DMF vs SMF, cost & driveability?

I have the GTA clutch/Q2 conversion on my 916 GTV and noticed the clutch is a heck of a lot lighter etc..... But what are the advantages of a SMF on a diesel?

loads of debate and different opinions about this one .Some say SMF will shake your diesel to bits lots more vibration others say no way its fine I did mine its ok .As for a clutch and DMF change on a diesel its about 750 in total at a specialist only use a specialist .I would do a search on here to read all the different opinions on the subject .I personally change the clutch and DMF.I will ask you a question when you went to look at this car with a view to buy the vendor explains to you that the drive train has been fundamentally altered from standard would you have bought it ???? I personally would have walked away

If it's not slipping, try lubricating the bushes in the gearbox, these cause heaviness and erratic pedal feel when they bind:

Just because it's high miles doesn't mean it's worn out, depends how it's been used. Biting point is self adjusting via the hydraulics so this shouldn't be an indication of clutch wear in itself.
