Default What Clutch and flywheel shoud I get ?

Hey guys I am planing to replace clutch and flywheel, I search for all possible part that I can afford and come up with these clutch and flywheel.

1.JWT Clutch and flywheel = $800.
2.Clutch master clutch and flywheel stage 1 = 550
3.Clutch master clutch and flywheel stage 2 = 600
4. F1 RACING STAGE 1 CLUTCH& FLYWHEEL = 420
5. F1 RACING STAGE 2 CLUTCH& FLYWHEEL = 478
6. F1 RACING STAGE 3 CLUTCH& FLYWHEEL = 507
7. XTD STAGE 2 CLUTCH & FLYWHEEL = 480
8. XTD STAGE 3 CLUTCH & FLYWHEEL = 509

Some people say, chose the clutch the way you drive it. For me, I dont track the car but prefer something better than OEM.
XTD and F1 is pretty cheap, But i worry about quality. If is really that that good, I willing to pay a little higher to get a higher quality one.
Ohh and What is the different between each stage ?

So, Which one you recommend ?


Thank you so much for all inputs

for the stages, usually the higher stage means it can hold the higher power without slipping, but in return it is usually stiffer and less streetable.

I hear good thing about ACT too, but I though it a little expensive than JWT.
Do you mind tell me where did you get ACT for $800 ?
If you dont want to post it here PM me, please.

the OEM dual mass flywheel is the best for DD on stock power. otherwise, just go with a JWT.

These has to be the best bang for the buck. The clutch held 587whp on our dyno, and then started slipping once we added the nitrous...hehe.

For a 400-500whp, is a great alternative to a triple disc carbon: $749 clutch, flywheel, clutch line, and Motul Fluid and shipping. We have a handful left at this insane price.
