How much hp will this handle? I am sure that a new clutch is pretty expensive so I don't want to do that yet

LMAO!!!
Just mod the car and don't worry about the clutch til it burns out. How long it will lasts depends on how hard you drive your car.

The clutches seem to be pretty good. I've used to autocross my car on weekends at Tire Rack which is usually kind of hard on clutches. My clutch is still holding and I have 155.000 miles on my Tib.

Yamanko is on his stock clutch and up 45 ponies, however, it is just a matter of time before it gives out due to the increased HP and torque.

Several people run nitrous on the stock clutch with no apparent adverse effects.

I would say it is good to about 150 at the wheels..and beyond that...you are on borrowed time.

hey shirrel, how hard were you on your clutch for just normal driving? I chirp mine every few days and I am scared the clutch will only last around 20k

Right now I just drive normally, but when I was racing autocross in Indiana it seemed that I was pretty hard on it. The clutch is almost worn out right now but I still seems to be holding. I think I only have about 10 to 15,000 more miles before it startes slipping away. I can't be mad because its already lasted longer then I ever expected.<img src=icon_smile.gif border=0 align=middle>

The 1997's seem to have clutches that last forever. Red's clutch was going strong even with many drag launches on it at around 60 ro 70,000 miles. My dad's clutch has over 120,000 on it, and it is fine, (but he doesn't race)<img src=icon_smile_dead.gif border=0 align=middle>

Don't worry about yours till it starts to give out...or till you need a replacement to to higher HP....

I am gonna have close to 200 horsepower at the wheels in about a week, I expect that I am gonna get maybe 20,000 miles. I race alot but hey, I paid for the car and I'm gonna have fun with it. Thats what we bought our cars for and a new clutch is like $400 - $500 installed. Think about the fact that, we don't worry about price that much when we buy performance parts but when the part that we rely on that is stock we all of a sudden worry about price, com'on leave the car stock if you dont wanna pay the consequences!<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
