Post Got me a new clutch...

My supercharger burned up the factory clutch in less than 8000 miles.

I now have a 6-puck copper/kevlar disc and Forester pressure plate. I'm going to be easy on it for the first 500 miles and then I will let you know how well it works.

You can get this from B-Spec USA care of Byron.

Is the Forester Pressure Plate any different?

How's the engagement?

That clutch was on sale during the month of January for $389. It includes clutch face and cover (pressure plate) only, so you need to buy a new factory pilot bearing and throw-out bearing. These are fairly inexpensive, just pointing it out.

I am considering this clutch too and am glad someone like Al has one to let us know how it does!

Thumbs up

Yes, that is the one that I purchased. It came to $418.00 with sales tax. I also had a new pilot bearing and throw-out bearing installed at the same time. So far, it feels like a stock clutch. The pedal is just as easy, if not easier, to push in. I get a little bit of shudder when taking off, but that is to be expected from a 6-puck. I am adjusting my driving style to reduce the amount of shudder. I'm not going to "jump" on it until I have at least 500 miles of normal driving. I want to make sure that the mating surfaces are properly broken in.
