Default Mazdaspeed motorsports comp clutch?

Does anyone have experience with the mazdaspeed motorsports competition clutch? The item description reads

"Notes: Stock pressure plate is modified to provide 30-40 percent higher diaphragm pressure over stock unit. Use with stock disc."

This would put it inline with the ACT HD in terms of holding power, but much cheaper. The ACT HD claims 33% increase with the stock disc.

my ACT HD is holding 170rwtq, which is more in lines at 50% increased clamping force.


what sucks is you can never just get the actual clamping force from anyone, if you knew the ACT holds say 1600 lbs. and so does the MS, then why not go with the MS, as they both use the stock disc.

I agree. I like saving money, but also want to make sure it's a quality part. Since it is a Mazda part, I'm guessing that it works pretty well, but still like to hear first-hand experiences.
