1) the lowest price I found 4 that blitz clutch (the cheapest of it's type) was $788. Fidanza alum flywheel these days (getting cheaper) is about $280 shipped from ebay. Various clutch kits are $120 (Basic OEM) to $170 (6 Puck) and $200+ for the overpriced shit.
2) How much does that whole thing weigh?
3) Does a 200 to 300 crank HP engine really need a 750+HP clutch?
My point is some of us don't feel the need to show off our blingin JDM tyte parts and prefer to do things within our USDM tight budgets.
SORRY TO GO OFF TOPIC ON UR BUILD THREAD sicj!!!!!
calm down there chachi.
1. you can pick them up used for cheap, and the beauty of them is they are rebuildable.
a 170 6 puck is joke, have fun with that, 200 for a good clutch is not overpriced shit, the cheap clutches you are looking at are shit, have fun with them. ive changed out to many of them for cheap kids who think that looking the same means they work just as good.
2. i dont remember exactly
3. thats the single disc version, not the dual, its only rated for about 400hp, do a little more research before you spew bullshit.
my point is, with things like clutches, its best to spend money on good parts the first time then replace them over and over. why spend 500 on custom pistons, and 170 on a cheap shit ebay clutch that is gonna not last, slip, not handle half the horsepower rating it claims too, and destroy your fidanza flywheel in the process?
its not jdm bling bling, its using your head and doing research, and learning from your own and others experience.
i dont quit, i wish i would have though and i wouldnt have half the shit filling my garage from broken projects ive fixed for people who cheaped out the first time around.
oh, and also, i said to use that desing of clutch, not a blitz exactly, you can also get them from nismo, exedy, etc all with rebuildable parts.
you know why i say this?
because then you can use the ca18det starter.
you know why i say to use the ca18det starter?
cause if you use the stock sr flywheel, with the 18et/20e hoodless starter, it wont always lign up properly, and will give you a death shreak grinding noise.
you know why you have to use the hoodless starter with the oem sr style flywheel?
cause the flat face of the flywheel where the pressure plate sticks out farther, notice how you cant see the ring gear on the oem flywheel?
if you dont use the hoodless the end of the starter rubs on that.
know why i know this?
cause i have done all the setups and seen first hand what works.
to op, vewy noice buildup.
