    Your clutch decision has alot to do with how much you have to spend.

    if you posted this in the correct forum, then you might have recieved a better response.

    no one knows how much power you are running. just because a clutch will hold 500hp, doesn't mean it's a)cost efficient, b)streetable or c)useful for your setup.

    try posting more information about what you are looking for and what you have.

    If done properly you shouldn't need a clutch.

    but in all honesty you would get a better response from one of the other forums.

    I would say to check around and look for the strongest clutch that is still streetable by that I mean a clutch that is not going to make you rip a tendon every time you shift. rush hour will be hell with a race clutch.

    I am assuming you only have stock clutch experience.

    friend of mine had a teg with an ls/vtech head swap and a act stage 2 clutch.

    thing killed your legs after 15 min of regular driving.

    hope this helps.

    I bought an ATS triple disc carbon clutch. Supposed to hold 1,200 ft. lbs of torque, but I seriously doubt I will ever get there. Cost over 2,000$ for the set up.

    I have an Exedy organic clutch. Besides the lower engagement point, it feels stock, and it holds 25-30% more power. It is very streetable, and is easy to finesse. I got it combined with an ACT Streetlite flywheel for $600 from Nino's Auto Accesories.
