Exedy Organic/ Gruppe S flywheel review

First I'll list what I had done. I had an Exedy Organic clutch and a Gruppe S flywheel installed by AMS. My stock clutch was still working fine, but AMS was running a deal where if you bought your clutch through them, you would get a deal on the install labor. Figuring with future mods, a clutch would probably be in order...I purchased the clutch through AMS and ordered the flywheel from Gruppe S. The super price on the flywheel from Gruppe S made it impossible to pass up. Great service and super fast shipping from both companies. I would will buy stuff from both companies again.

I had the clutch installed at AMS and it took a whole day. The install went well and at that time they also filled the tranny with Redline fluid. The guys at the shop were super cool and very helpful ( Like when a customer shows up to get a clutch installed and his dumb ass locks his keys in the car .....but they made that right in about 1 minute )

I recently moved here from California and I was depressed that there were not any shops by where I live ( Wisconsin ) Works in San Francisco was my shop of choice in Cali..they were awesome! But, I felt better when I figured out AMS was less than 2 hours away... That was the one bright spot about moving back here...A great shop with a great reputation within driving distance. What can I say about AMS that has not already been said...they are awesome.

Anyway, after the install, I was given the break in info and off I went.

First impressions....the clutch is stiffer, but much smoother. Way more grabby ( I'm sure the flywheel helps that as well) than the stock clutch. So I really babied the clutch during the break in. Plus, I have not been driving the car in the crappy Wisconsin road salt.

Well, I am driving the car again and I am out of the break in period. So far, I love the clutch, the feel is silky smooth and I can shift MUCH faster than I could with the stock clutch. I have not launched it yet because I am saving that for the track. I think this clutch will be what gets me into the lower 12's. My best run to date was a 12.7 e.t and a trap of 109 with a 1.9 60 ft. Well the clutch and the TTP e mail flash ( Review once I dyno or get to the track...the car feels much stronger after the reflash....)

I went with the organic on AMS's recommendation....it would have been this or the ACT. The trade off's and expense of the various twin plates is too much for me. So far I am very happy with the clutch and I can't wait to take it to the track.

Glad the set up is working out with you. I almost went with the gruppe s flywheel (that price is hard to pass up).
Have you thought about removing the restrictor and a stainless steel clutch line?

Glad to hear you're well pleased. I will be anxious to see how this unit holds up to some launching on a mildly modded Evo. If you don't mind me asking what was your total for the clutch and flywheel?

Hmmmm.... if it'll hold 350 whp and wtq that could be a nice option there. What's a typical install charge for a clutch? $300, $500, $800..??? I really haven't noticed a norm in all the browsing I've done.

Clutch install is usually 800-1000. If you can get it for 600, then you're golden. Anyone who charges only $425 is either not up to date on the standard charges or just doesn't care and is giving amazing prices. Hell, I even pay my local sponsor $300 just because of how much time it takes and how big of a pain in the ass it is. All my other installs are free.

High-end shops will charge 600-800 while the dealer charges 1000. You also have to remember that fluids alone are over $100, and the quoted price doesn't always include that.
