Default Will this clutch hold 300whp?

Competition Clutch Stage 3 Street/Strip Series 2600 Clutch Kit


Competition Clutch

Going to be boosting my car, wanted to know if this clutch will handle what I throw at it. Which CC clutch does FM use in their kit?

You literally sent the link to where it shows your answer. 200ft-lb. Clutch limits are not rated in hp.

Okay I guess I was confused because FM uses a CC clutch and their clutch can handle 325ft/lbs, This is the beefiest street clutch CC offers

And you're not just going with the FM clutch why? Their "stage 2" is $40 cheaper and can handle far more torque than the CC 2600...

From FM's stage 2 page:
"We worked with a major clutch manufacturer for over a year to make these clutches a reality."

In other words, it's likely their own specs. You won't find a direct comparison in CC's own line.

Well going with clutch we all recommend is just sillyness, don't you know he can find a cheaper better way to do it all that we have not considered.

Listen Gentlemen, I posted this only trying to get a better deal than FM stage 1 (since they use what I found out is a modified CC clutch), thats what I always do. I then realized that the parts I have collected are high quality and Im just going to buy a FM stage 1.

What won me over was the stock like feel with the 329 ft/lb cant be beat for the price period.
