The clutch in my 2014 Evora S is currently being replaced. I'm thinking... while it's in the shop being taken apart, should we have anything else done to the car that might as well happen now? Car has 13k miles on it.

I'm sure others will chime in, but whenever I have the engine and transmission separated, I replace the rear main seal as insurance.

Really figure out why it failed (or atleast convince yourself of the reason). Otherwise itll happen again or youll be worried everytime you drive it.

Are you replacing the clutch with OEM parts?
Have you considered a heavy duty one?
I did this and it has bean great. I also did the aluminium flywheel which I feel has let it rev up a lot quicker. But be warned that it makes things sound rattly due to the low inertial and stiffer clutch springs.


Id do:
Flywheel and pressure plate or have them surfaced and really well checked over (maybe the pressure plate has an issue?)
Clutch release bearing
New Clutch Slave cylinder
Insulation around clutch cylinder and lines
New Clutch master cylinder with the metal Wilwood

13kmiles is low but you could consider the following:
Rear engine mount
Thermostat
Accessories belt


Check harness grounding strap at gearbox/chassis.
Clean all terminals and add a tiny bit of dialectic grease to each pin. (MAF sensor and Throttle need this the most)
