I've never had a Stage 1 clutch in a Type 4. The KEP Stage 1 (modified Sachs) feels really heavy on the pedal. I'm OK with it as long as nothing is wrong. Anybody had the same?

I imagine if this is "normal", I should switch to a Delrin pulley...

Are you sure the throw is adjusted properly?

I had KEP Stage I, II and III clutches and i currently run a special made one-off KEP clutch on my 3.6L and while they do feel a bit firmer, i never had any of them feel heavy.

Once adjusted properly, you should feel a very distinct point where the clutch disengages and once past that point, the pedal should move freely without much force needed to hold it.
