In the end I went with ACT's MB7-XTSS. The heavier clamp load with a street disk. I had spoke with ACT and they completely turned me away from puck style clutches; theirs and anyone elses. I also followed RRE's advise regarding puck style clutches;
"Whether it is a stock flywheel, lightened stock flywheel or a Chromoly flywheel, puck clutches make cracks that kill flywheels, that kill bell housings and more. They have their place but I don't think in a street car. In a race car that gets regular inspections they can be fine."

I had my doubts about this till I came up on a dude selling a used Exedy with about 5k miles. I took a look at the flywheel and there it was; a crack in the friction surface. The flywheel wasn't even heated up with no discoloration. My stocker I took out looked worse, blued to the other side and uneven, but without cracks.
I have a street car. I'm sticking with a street disk.

PS. The pull design is not "dumb." It's much better than the push design on DSMs. A hydraulic bearing is good and all, but don't make the mistake of calling the pull-type design "dumb."

Let us know how the XTSS works for you, larry. That's a pretty stiff pedal, but such things have never bothered me.

I really do like it. There is increased pedal pressure, but it's not bad at all. I think the clutch line helped with that. The street disk is smooth as butter in the traffic and rocks for the everyday driving I do. It holds the torque from my set up and I'm as happy as a pig in slop.
