Default ACT Clutch on EBAY

I think I am going to order this clutch kit. It seems to be identical to the extreme 1.6 kit from FM (but for $100 less) What do you guys think?

P.S. Is ACT extreme 1.6 overkill for 200-220 whp?

It's not overkill because you'll always want more powar...

I think that is an HD version, not the XT version. I'm basing this on the fact that they describe it as a "heavy duty pressure plate". And the fact that they state 200 ft*lbs holding capacity. The XT usually is rated at 277 ft*lbs.

edit: Please see this link for a comparable kit:

This link shows the same 1.6 application, 200ftlbs capacity, and a lower price with free shipping.

he's right that kit has the hd pressure plate. no a bad clutch but is only rated at 200ftlbs which with a turbo is fairly easy to surpass. find an xt pressure plate with a street disc and you won't have to worry about your clutch unless you're making 350hp or so.
