I have really high engagement also. Clutch pedal travels only 1/4 of the way and it's engaged/disengaged.

been reading the tread and it seems that 1 1/4 turns is best.. without having to worry if the clutch stays engaged..

Got the stubby and adjusted 1.5 turns. The engagement is lower and feels more natural. Much more fun to drive.
