The replacement clutch would be a new OEM kit (disc, pressure plate, flywheel, rear main seal, release bearing... anything else?). Yes it should be able to hold the torque I already looked into that, plus OEM is way more driver friendly
You'll want to do the pilot bearing while you're in there. The clutch install is easy as pie, and should take under an hour (ignoring dropping/installing the transmission).

As long as the OEM kit comes with a clutch alignment tool, you'll be okay.

go see Jason and Norbert at Simoes Automotive. Tell them your situation and they will most likely help you out. They are car guys. They are doing the clutch on my g35 bc im way too lazy to do it and the labour rate they quoted me was peanuts.

wtf do you know?

The stock clutch has 120,000kms on it and was already on it's way out. There's people out there that make way more power than me on the stock clutch. I've already looked into this.

After all, it's a daily driver. I'm not a streetz rac0r thAt needz teh 6 puck for 190lb/tq

it really just depends on how you drive there nortian. The stock clutch can take bit more troq then stock out put rate,the only qestion is how long it will last? and what you plan to do later on.

on some stock cheep clutchs like dyno pack ect have an issue with spring coming loose or the bands snapping form power shifting.


but yae got my pm




ps scott you don't have to run 6 puck act and exzeddy ect make upgraded full face disks and have just upped clamp force on there persure plates
