Post Question about different ACT clutch kits

what is the kit that most people buy for 2.5RS's

the SB2-HD00 kit?

I'm looking for something that has more a on/off feal and will be good for 5 psi of boost (eventually)

I was told by my dealer to pic kup the street kit. I have not gone to a turbo yet but am plannig to in the near future. My mechanic at teh dealer said that kit should be able to handle the turbo nicely...

good luck

I've heard some people have problems with the ACT because of its on/off nature. i.e. breaking diffs, gears, etc.
I'm going turbo in the next month or so and I'm getting a clutchmasters. Its got a harder pedal feel than stock.

I have got that ACT clutch on my 2000 RS and think it is one of the best aftermarket pieces i have added to my car. with the stock clutch before i could feel it slip under pressure but the act clutch grips perfect and puts power where u need it!

To explain my earlier post better. There are plenty of people running the ACT clutch, and many with no problems. However there are some folks with turbos who drive their cars hard, and having a stiffer clutch with better power transfer *can* mean that other components in you driveline will bear the brunt of this extra power. I for one would rather not have my gears shear off or my rear diff break. But it really comes down to how hard you are on the car.
