Unless you have 600-700 hp you dont need this but the clutch masters fx-700 is very nice.

damn i wish had the money to just get a twin disk clutch for no reason, Fsrider was correct in asking you what your power is at you can run a 300 dollar Comp clutch stage 4 if your under 350-400 wheel torque

as stated previously it greatly depends on your power output. You do not want a clutch 4 stages to high for your car, they cost more and wear out faster if your stock or stock with bolt ons get an OEM replacement...If your supercharged...stage 2 or 3...turbo stage 4

Keep in mind that aftermarket 'stage clutches' may hold more torque, but they hold it for a SIGNIFICANTLY reduced period of time. Expect to get under 10k miles out of it, even if youre easy on the clutch. These clutches were not designed for longevity or ease of use.

Unless a properly functioning stock clutch simply will not hold the massive torque of your motor (which is unlikely the case 99% of the time), then any 'performance clutch' is amassive dowgrade from an OEM unit.

Yea i have stage one organic and its holding my power fine. I was just basing my suggestion off of reviews and other ppl. Not like if i had one it would make a diff in how good they are. Just one person saying they are good means nothing.

Im replacing my clutch next week and was wondering the same now decided Im going with the competition clutch stage 2 series 2100 paired up with comps 11lb flywheel ,I have i/h/e + fp tuned w/ j35tb and ported im + 100 shot (track only) so I dont need a stage 5 or anything crazy. I think your needs for the clutch flywheel combo is more the mods you have mixed with how you drive your car, ex. I daily my car and put 100+ miles on my car per day and deal with traffic 4x a week so I want a "stock" feeling clutch nothing too stiff that will make me hate life. but want it to grab at the track
