But honestly, I'd choose something like the ACT next time. Put up with the issues and get something that will hold for sure. When I bought my SpecII I had no intention of going turbo ... hindsight is 20/20

Maybe I'll pull it out and sell the entire thing as a package and go with a 1.8 solution if it becomes a problem.
I wonder how many people having troubles with SPEC are running 1.8L flywheels and disks and how many are on the smaller 1.6L stuff.

I'm running a 1.6 Stage II with their lightened flywheel.

I will be running a 230mm Mazda 323 GTR SPEC Stage1 clutch rated at 325ftlbs of torque. This is in a FWD BP application. The stock GTX/R clutch holds fine to 250 wft lbs and 270whp that I tested so far.
