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.

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.

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.

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.
