I know somebody that works with me and he's got clutchmaster stage 1 on his 4th gen. That clutch is super smooth and just perfect for a daily driver to me. Although some people like stiffer clutch feel but I hate it when driving in traffic jams.

That the only clutch I know unless you go with a 6 puck from act and dam that is stiff and bites really quick and hard.

Dam 300hp!!! oops the clutchmaster stage 1 will not hold that kind of power, sorry.

I think you might have to go with a Clutchmasters stage 3 or a ACT extreme something I forgot, similar to the 6 puck.

But you know that is the price for performance, you'll lose comfort. Just like suspension, exaust noise, engine reliability, ect ect.

why not a stock clutch. You arent gonna have the power needed to really benefit from a race/street clutch

I figured while i had it pulled apart to throw the flywheel on might as well throw in a new clutch.

if you dont need a race/street clutch you car is gonna be slower.

Go look at people who run stock clutches and have basic bolts on, then ask them what happened when they put a race/street clutch in.....
