I know this may belong in a different forum, but since its about the clutch in the new turbo kit, i thought i'd post it here so we could keep everything about the kit together. I have read, UFB, that your clutch will withstand around 400hp. For $90 that sounds very good to me. But i have a question...does it offer more "gripping power" than stock, or is it simply the upgraded pressure plate that will withstand more power? My friend has a stage 3 clutchmasters clutch, and he can chirp 5th gear with his integra ls/vtec. will your clutch be able to give the same kind of grip needed to chirp gears higher than 2nd??? just a though.

It's a 4-puck clutch. I'm not sure about its grabbing characteristics, so I'll let UFB answer this one.

Jetedawg -

As per my other posts and the pictures on the online album - the clutch upgrade is only the plate! It is a 4 button sintered copper clutch plate and is a 100% replacement of the original plate - it does not include the pressure plate and thrust release bearing - the reason we did not manufacture the other parts is because many customers already have modded pressure plates and bearings, also the stronger pressure plate also hardens the clutch pedal alot more and makes the car undrivable in traffic! - we only supply the clutch plate itself. The plate will handle the power that either of our kits can produce.

Regarding the grip charateristics of the clutch - it is definitely able to offer more grip and will handle much more power and heat than the stock clutch. When used with a double diaphram pressure plate, this setup will handle above 600HP!

Before I forget - the reason this clutch upgrade is so 'cheap' is because we manufacture this clutch ourselves! The cost is in no way related to the quality and/or strength of the clutch and it's performance.
