So for reference.
Buy exedy part# KMZ03 ( BP complete clutch kit ) Was $106 shipped on amazon.
And find a MZD007S equivalent ( or MZD007US Both listed on the exedy box ) I can't find the exedy disc by itself, just in the Kit "07095" Clutch disc for a 2.5l v6 mazda, or ford probe gt.

I lost a few bucks experimenting, but oh well.
This setup could probably be had for $150 for the BP kit and a KL clutch disc, and I am out $200.
The KL makes like 160ftlbs to the fly.

Which translates in the 140wtq range. I wouldn't trust a stock KL clutch to hold a forced induction 200whp KL. Same applies for a turbo BP.
