Thanks for getting those answers, sorry to be the worst kind of customer. If it makes you feel any better I'll probably buy the clutch and I will buy another set of your front sway-bar mounts.

I'm upgrading my MSM to an EFR6258, courtesy of NitroDann's mad-fab skills, and am planning to run it at 260-320rwhp - I'm more interested in running it with usable/reliable hp on the track than blowing up the engine and I don't have any issues with my masculinity.

The hunt is now on for a clutch and this car is used on weekends so I don't want a heavy-duty clutch - I had one on my 1982 JA Starion when I bought it and hated it until it was replaced with a stock clutch when it failed.

The FM2 clutch and light flywheel look to be the right choice for me but then I read Braineack's comment:

It'll more than likely be on my list with a 1.8L flywheel if i ever decide to yet again do a clutch job.
This makes me question then if I need to replace the clutch at all.

Does anyone know what the limits of the MSM clutch are?

Do you still hold this view Braineack?

... I guess the FM2 clutch is a "no-brainer" for peace of mind.

The MSM clutch can take you to around the limit of the MSM's little IHI turbo, and not really much more. You'll need to replace it.

I have an FMII clutch... in a box, so I can't tell you how it feels. I have had the opportunity to try out 949's twin disc in a couple of different cars, and found it fantastic after I got used to it.
