    That's too much clutch. Consider something more reasonable, or your 5spd will end up in a junkyard.

    what would you recomend. My last car was a mustang and i am still used to just picking out good bolt ons and stuff that could handle lots of torque.

    I would probably just keep your stock clutch...no need to change it unless its slipping!

    I am just wanting to beef up the tranny without having to do a swap. I plan on adding some hp eventually and I want to work on the weak point first.

    The 6 puck is notoriously harsh on engagement.. I mean really bad. Unless you only use the car for racing (ie. trailer it to the track), then you're going to want a full face disk.

    Stock clutch for anything under about 330whp.

    Installing a clutch with a greater clamping force will make your transmission MORE likely to fail, not the other way around. If you want to increase the strength of the transmission you need to either replace the gear set with something like PPG gears, or perform a six speed swap. But like I said, unless you're planning on significantly increasing power (which would require an engine build to stay semi reliable), I wouldn't mess with the clutch.


    I would consider the weak point to be the suspension and brakes. Also pistons, and the 5 speed transmission design.

    Stay away from light weight flywheels too. They are a pain in the ass.

    Stock clutch and transmission should be just fine for that, unless you're really trying to break something.


    As long as the diverter valve is recirculating you should be fine. Personally, I would add a 3-port EBCS to that list. And I think you'll want a new fuel pump and injectors if you want to push it.
