Default Got the injectors .. running 8 ish psi

I got my 305cc injectors, and now im finally running about 8 psi. One problem tho, the clutch is slipping! 3rd gear and on I get slippage . Since I cannot afford a ACT, how are the ebay ones?

Although i have no experience with the Ebay clutches for miatas, I know some for the 300zx. the XTD has been proven to hold very well even on 600hp Zs. The problem that i have seen with them is that they like to chatter a little. I will probably be going with this clutch when i finally get to ordering my kit. I believe people are saying F1 clutches are decent as well.

Eh, now that I think about it id be at the limit of that clutch, so if I ever upped the boost more id start slipping on that. I think im better off going with the stage 3.

i have a 6 puck in my prelude and i absolutely hate it . it is not for daily driving for sure. it holds good but it jerks like a mo fo. first gear is pain in the ***. if it was a track car i would do it but for street it is a hell no. my other friends with miatas regret putting them on but you can give it a try and let us know.

I have no other choise because of money. Atleast its a sprung hub, so what if I have to launch my car at every stop light? haha

I've been daily-driving a 6-puck for 9 months now. It's not bad at all, IMO. It's a personal preference thing.
