    clutches

    Okay, so I need a clutch.. bad lol

    My question is, should I get a centerforce dual friction clutch, or a spec stage 2 or 3. I want to get a clutch with decent holding power as I'm going to be using it for my turbo hybrid build in the future.

    Sooo any suggestions would be welcome

    I would go with an Exedy Stage 2. should be plenty of holding power, they are good for 320+hp. They make a little bit of chatter noise but a decent exhaust should drown that out

    well first off it wasnt too expensive. It has taken quite a bit of abuse from me over the 3 or 4 years ive had it, from road racing, autocross, drag strip, and just plain DDing. Clamps good and pedal has a good feel.

    X2 centerforce. Changing the clutch out isn't that bad either, just take your time.

    I'm buying a new flywheel, because my clutch has been slipping and my rms is leaking into my bellhousing most likely onto the clutch, and they're cheap on rockauto.

    I've decided I'm going with the centerforce.

    Also... clutch shouldn't be bad at all.. atleast its not a fwd geo lol

    Speaking of which, am I going to be able to get at all of the trans to block bolts without moving the engine?

    Its a real tight fit, I think I had to jack the front of the motor up a little to get to the top 2 bolts.

    Well I wound up going with the spec stage 3 because it was the same price but came with a throw out bearing and an alignment thingy.
