Default Clutch

Is this clutch much of an improvement over stock? If so would it be sufficient for 8psi?

It says 28% stronger than stock, which means it Might hold ~128 ft/lbs of torque which isn't much. You want something that will hold more like 220 ft/lbs. The ebay F1 clutches would be better than that one. That is basically a stock replacement.

My stock clutch is holding 9psi (for now), however you will want more than that.

if anything it's an OEM equivalent PP and a good disc.


from the way they describe it, im sure its a rebranded clutchnet kit, just like the F1 stage III kits.

Will most of you install the clutch yourself? or have a local shop do it?

Clutch jobs on miatas are about as easy as it gets. Buy that Miata projects book and it will save you some hassle.
