Finally getting around the turbo Miata project now that my master's program is about done (oh shucks, now I have to find a job or get into a doctoral program...)
So, after a quick two hours at a very relaxed pace of work, the motor (spun bearing? to be replaced with a used motor) and transmission are out. The transmission is separated and the feared to be unknown piece of junk clutch (everything else on the car that the prior owner installed was junk) is exposed to be...
An ACT XT model MZ014X!
...with a 6-puck solid hub clutch (bad for street driving) :(
...with a torque capacity of 353 ft/lbs according to ACT's website
If I get 200-250 rwhp out of my car when it is all back together, I think I'll be lucky. As such, the solid disc is not going back in as it is just not suitable for street driving.
I'm thinking that a $40-50 stock Exedy disc with that pressure plate is about right, since that pressure plate plus the ACT "MM" disc = 277 ft/lbs, which should be adequate for my goals.
So, any suggestions to the contrary before I place and order so I can get it back on the road/track?
