Default I have 350whp 18G setup- should I use an Exedy organic clutch or cerametallic clutch?

I have 350whp 18G setup. Exedy organic clutch? or cerametallic clutch? Plan on upgrading to RA gears within the next 6 months, so please keep that in mind. Thanks in advance.

I bet you if you put a cerametallic cltch on you will have to get the gears sooner than 6 months. Personally I am sticking with a stage 1 clutch cause I rather replace clutches than expensive RA gearsets, that's just me though.

yea man, ill PM you, when i get back from class. Its not making exactly 350whp, just a little under it. The setup the guy had, which i bought it from was making 32Xwhp, but now i have headers, and he didnt. So we'll see. Oh and this is 100 octane, not street 93.

Organic ownz. I vote for stock or "Stage 1" upgrade organic clutch. Anything other than organic will add more stress to your gears. While your WHP suits the RA gears to a T, RA gears DO break. An organic clutch is the most gear friendly aside from being longer lasting than the cooler "ceramikevlarcarbonfiber" ones. I'm of the opinion that anything better than organic is best suited to transmissions other than OEM and RA. This theory might not be popular, but it is biased towards people not going out and buying transmissions every day.

A word of warning. I had an exedy organic clutch (sometimes marketed through STi as their competition clutch) on the 6 speed. I chewed it up in about 10,000 miles. Before I upgraded to the 6mt I had a clutchmasters stage 4 (cermetallic) on the 5 speed and that combo was rock solid for over 45,000 miles (totally stock RS tranny too). If you slam the clutch back down between gear changes and are otherwise fairly abusive on the car, a ceramic will destroy stuff in VERY short order.
