Default Which Clutch?

I'm thinking of going with Exedy. But I'm not quite sure which one to go with. Anyway, basically my clutch is about to die and I need a replacement that can handle my off and on clutch dropping and speed shifting...I only have a few engine mods so its not really a hp problem however I do plan to some day be in between the 300-400hp range. Anyone got any ideas?

theres quite a few guys with an honest 300whp running around on the stock clutch. Anyone can make it slip but it has enough clamp to break gears.

Thumbs up

I'm happy with the Exedy clutch with the stock flywheel in my car so far. I'm able to launch the car without frying or even smelling my clutch with 1.7 60' times. It has a 1030kgf pressure plate vs. the stock 850kgf, but it's not really much stiffer as far as pedal feel goes. Mine is the regular sport clutch i think it's called with organic disc

I bought mine from ninosautoaccessories(.com)

yeah, replace your transmission at the same time cause you were denied warranty, then you might get a little patience. its the only way i did. and i really dont want to mess up my RA gears
