Default Exedy Organic vs Act 6 puck on ej20g w/2.5rs 5mt

So i keep hearing that the exedy is just far less stressful on the 2.5rs5mt, is just the less load and strain it places on the gears the reason the organic is preferable?

The more agressive friction material used on our puck disc allows it to hold more torque and withstand more heat than the organic clutch surface. If you get the organic material too hot it is much more likely to begin to slip and protect the driveline from more abuse. The puck material because of it's higher heat tolerances is going to require a greater amount of heat to begin slipping and subject the driveline to more.

If you're in the market for a Exedy Stage 1, I can't see you needing to use our 6 puck disc because the amount of torque each can hold is vastly different. In addition the driveabilty between the two discs is night and day. The organic disc is going to offer smooth engagement and no chatter vs. the harsh engagement and driveline chatter often seen with a puck disc. Our kit using a organic disc for the 2.5 RS is rated at 308 ft. lbs. of torque, our 6 puck disc with the same pressure plate holds 394 ft. lbs. for reference.

the car already has the 6 puck and is mated to an engine making around 300 crank and associative torque numbers
