Which clutch and flywheel?

Looking to change my clutch and flywheel soon. I am trying to decide between the exedy organic which is 44% holding over stock or the Act 2900 which holds 38% over stock. I want to know if any had either of these clutches and what you think about them? I had a act 2100lb in my eclipse and i loved it. I have heard good things about the exedy and they are around the same money so i just wanted some other opinions about both of them. Thanks in advance.

i have the ACT2900, it is working exelent.i have no idea about the exedy one. this one is little bit harder on the pedal ,otherwise drive like the facory .But absolutly no sliping and lot better holding. Don't get the 6 pack type.get the street disk, if you have less then 360 whp.that is my opinion.

Definately. Which ever company you go with don't get a puck style disk. They kill flywheels. Scroll down to Metallic Puck Style Clutch Discs;

I ran and ACT2900 for a year and destroyed it. It also gave a heavier pedal feel.
I have since switched to a Spec stage 3+. The clutch feel is as light as stock but has more holding capacity than the ACT. I got mine through Martin at www.thespeedfactor.com

its interesting that i came across this question cuz last night while i was coasting in 5th gear, waaaaaay below the threshold of the turbo (about 3000rpm), the rpms jumped up almost to redline!!! this is obviously bad news...i dont wanna drive it til i know what clutch im getting and im gonna drive it straight to the shop! my question is, with an upgraded turbo and about 450-500whp and about 400 tq...what type of clutch will hold that kind of power with no problems and last a long time??? im not looking to spend a small fortune for a clutch either, what do you guyz think??

Exedy Twin cerametallic, but it's $1500, which includes the pressure plate, twin plates, throwout bearing, and chromoly flywheel. Is $1500 what you mean by spending a small fortune? If so, then you'll have to get a single disk, which really won't cut it for your power. With the Twin, you shouldn't have to change it again for a long time, so it pays for itself.

I'm using the Exedy 4-puck sprung disk, which would cost you $950. Larry mentioned pucks being bad, but I love mine. It works well with the provided flywheel. If over time, it blows out, then I'll just put in Exedy's twin, which I have spare.

yeah thats what everyone has been telling me. no no, 1500 is by no means a small fortune. i was just looking at the exedy twin carbon/carbon and the rps and the cusco clutches and those things get as high as 2800. id rather get a stroker kit for that price...jesus. but yeah, the exedy seems like the best solution, thanx warrtalon

terrick, you're getting the exedy stage 2 twin plate from jeff right?

that is definately the clutch to go with, especially for your car; cant believe the stocker has held on this long. im looking at this same clutch when the unfortunate time comes.

pedal heaviness, plate chatter......all BS, if those annoyances were of consequence to us, do you think we would have bought evo's? hell no. when i drove the car off the dealer lot (with 4 miles) it had twice as many rattles as our 7 year old BMW with 90k on it

hey matt...whats up man!! gettin away from the socalevo drama?? i hear you man. now back to the issue at hand...im definately getting that clutch but the problem is, whomever im buying the clutch from has to be the one to install it for me, cuz im sure i only have one trip left on the clutch...i really do! it was pretty bad bro, ive never seen that happen before, the rpms jumping like that in 5th gear. it was doing that in almost every gear until i finally got home. i was praying to my clutch please last just enough to get me home, please!! haha oh well...yeah i was just as surprised as you are that it's lasted this long, 100% bro. i guess its the 100 octane that im runnin all the time that has taken its toll on the clutch. everyone might as well use 100 octane too, the price of 91 is edging very close to 100...might as well. anyhow, im gonna go with whomever can install it and whomever will give me the best price.

I have the cusco twin disk carbon/carbon clutch, and have loved it since the day I got it. Now it is on it's way out after three years of treating every stop light like a drag strip tree, and over 60 real drag strip passes where I slip the crap out of it (replacement disks are cheaper than replacement center diff or tranny parts) it is finally starting to slip in 4th gear. Replacement carbon/carbon disks are about $500 for a set of two.

Order the clutch on line and have it delivered to you, then take it to the nearest place that is competent to install it. I would just tow the car rather than trying to drive it to the shop and end up stuck some where and having to get it towed anyway. I got my Cusco twin disk carbon/carbon from Z1 for less than most people pay for a non-carbon disk clutch..... but it was on sale at the time. Not sure what they are to buy one right now.

my car isn't to the point where it is slipping at all, but I don't want it to be a issue. I hate having to drive around all slow and not put my foot down. I think I'm just going with the ACT 2900lb. I can't see myself spending $1500 on a clutch for my car, If i was doing more then the occasional track and just daily driving I would consider a nice Exedy.

Well, the Exedy I'm using is comparable to the ACT HDSS in price. I had the ACT previously and much prefer the new Exedy. My ACT lasted 9500, but it definitely got abused with all my racing.
