Interesting, I have that same clutch on my car (installed since last summer) but I don't think mine actually said Clutchnet on it. And yes, it's definitely a stock Exedy replacement PP,

call that company and ask them if they would sell your clutch alone. if they do then go buy pp from clutchnet.

i got an XTR one and i just finished the installation. grabs really nice surprisingly. It looks EXACTLY like the clutchnet one without all the badging. holds up pretty well to the new power.

paid 170 shipped. for that price, im sold.

i wouldnt run over 200rwtq on them and expect them to hold. like i said OEM PP with a good disc, the disc itself can certainly hold up, but its need a stronger clamping PP to actually hold tons of torque.

For say, 200 to 275 hp, I would run a clutchmasters stage II or III, for more than that, you may want to look into something such as a Bully clutch. It's a Canadian brand that provides exceptional quality for daily drivers/track cars. I have a Bully Stage III clutch and it can handle 300 hp np problem, with stock pedal pressure. Bit pricey though, not like these cheap website brand cluthes you keep talking about.
