Default OEM or stage 1 clutch?

I just bought Delta cams 1000 grind and wanted to get a LW flywheel and clutch to install while the engine was out. I was planning on going with the OEM exedy clutch but can't find any numbers on hp or torque ratings. I wouldn't imagine my car is pushing the limits of the clutch but would a stage 1 be a better idea? I have OBX ELH, Cobb CAI and CBE, PP6 EM and Perrin crank pulley. Does anyone know what the hp numbers for an OEM clutch and exedy OEM or stage 1 are?

The OEM clutch can handle much more than our engines can put out, and is nicer to your transmission.

Wrong forum, btw.

stick with the OEM. and when you install the lightened flywheel, remove the lightweight crank pulley.

you choose either way makes no difference..stage one is about 20% to 30% more holding power really if you can get the same price for both go with the stage 1 either way makes no difference but once you go bolt on turbo or swap..stage one will last a bit longer.....thats if you plan on going that route. If not the stage 1 will just last longer.

the OEM organic material clutch can heal itself when it overheats, the stage 1 can't.

what do you have to do to cause a clutch to overheat? i would think you would either A: really suck at driving, or B: doing something you shouldn't be doing to your car anyway like dropping the clutch.

too many friction losses

Stop and go driving can overheat the stock clutch pretty easily, especially on an incline.

The usual question: what do you use the car for?



I personally need to switch to a better clutch, since while racing it does slip a little (after a shift, usually), and once it heats up it gets a bit stinky. Switching to a non-organic compound on the clutch would fix that right up for me.



However, if it's just about holding the power i woudn't worry about it, since you won't be heating it up much on a regular basis.

simple everyday driving and some spirited driving every now and then. i never race or go crazy.
even though my on a stage1 exedy clutch now i really dont see how normal driving even if your not absolutely 100% perfect at it can cause a clutch to overheat. If that was the case 80% of manual transmission car owners would be getting there clutch replaced every 20k

actually you're right. The revs drop way faster and the ECU thinks the car misfires and throws the code.

stage 1 don't worry bout it healing itself...cause if your insstalling cams or getting someone to then you probably know what your doing...plus i doubt it'll do much to your tranny other than holding power...
