you don't really need the 6-puck version which adds a bit of cost. prostreeonline.com and caroline clutch typically have the best prices.


or you can go for something from clutchnet. get the red PP with the yellow standard clutch disc, that should be plenty, save you bucks.


or the F1 6-puck kits on ebay for $150

What's the pedal feel with the XD? Is it a full face disk or a puck?

HD = feels like stock, clutch engages close to the floor. can hold a good amount of torque on a 1.8L
XT = increased pedal effort. can hold almost anything you throw at it.

Is there anyone using the ebay F1 @ 12psi with any success? Seems like a great deal if it lives up to the ad.
