Well got my car all together and it runs good by the way. But after about a day or 2 the clutch started to act funny then it made a bad ticking noise when i pushed the clutch in. Possibly the throw out bearing right?
 
Sounds like the TOB to me. I would do all the normal stuff that you can before opening up the tranny though. Try bleeding it and adjusting your clutch pedal, and if that doesn't help, you know what you've gotta do.
 
Bleeding is not going to help if the TOB is bad. If the pedal was soft, that would be a different story. If you put a new tob in, it's under warranty. If you didn't, well now's a good time to do it. And, when someone posts a question as to whether they should change it, you can tell them first hand as to why it's a good idea.

Good Luck
 
When we had just finished the rebuild of our 2g 7bolt last year, our clutch started making a ticking noise when pushed all the way down. Clutch also started going soft in 90* left hand turns. We ended up with severe crank play after only 500 miles.

I don't want to scare you, but if that noise is coming from the drivers side, checking your crank end play is not a bad idea.
 
I am sure that it is not crank walk with a 6bolt stroker, i havent heard much of walk with them and the clearances were all too good. Thanks for the advice though.

It would be unusual, but not unheard of. ;)

When you say you got your car all together, what all did you replace?
