im not sure about the "pop" but you could have been too hard on the clutch before it was "ready". most people dont know that by 800 miles, they mean 800 city miles with a lot of easy stopping and going. you should try to work with the company and complain about a fulty product...maybe you can get a new one for free

Why do you have a stage 2 clutch in there? Do you have the stock tranny gears as well? If i were you and your clutch and or pressure plate is broke get a refund and put a stock Exedy clutch and pressure plate back in it.

yes i bought it and installed it myself. the clutch works fine. i also bought the f1 racing lightweight flywheel because i didnt feel like getting mine resurfaced. i bought both the clutch and the flywheel for 300 bucks on ebay

Just take your time when doing this, there are many right ups on this site and other sites that show you step by step to replace your clutch so you dont find yourself taking your tranny back out cause you did the throw out bearing wrong.

You worded that very weird, your axles will have a little pin in there you push out with a little punch and then they will slide off the diff. Below is a pic of your front diff, and your front CV shaft that slides onto the diff.
