I installed the DDM clutch when I replaced my engine last winter. It is almost an on/off switch when first installed. I feel like the clutch has an extremely long break in period (or maybe learning curve). After about 5,000 miles it gets alot easier (or maybe you just GIT GUD). If all you do is drive around town and cruise in the car I say skip the clutch and just stick with stock. But if you drive aggressively on twisty roads then you will like it. It makes rev match down shifting alot smoother and easier. Also the RPM hang on up shifts is significantly reduced. Those two factors were enough for me to keep the clutch and just deal with it on my daily commute. Also NVH is increased as well. I have about 14,000 miles of driving on the setup so far.
