Well, my 1 yr old stock clutch doesn't hold anymore past 4500 rpms in full boost :bang head

My Car dynoed 209 WHP @ 14psi and I have since added alc/h20 injection and running 20psi. I have no doubt I am putting atleast 250WHP down now. What clutch kit is good for a daily driver?? I was thinking the T2/T3 kit from FWD as all the other kits seem to be for race only?? Anyone offer any advice?? I don't want to be doing this ever year :D This is my 85 Turbo Z btw..

I say the t2/t3 is a good option, no worries about overpowering it at 250hp. If you want to be doubly sure look into a kevlar. The puck clutches are too much for what you want to do and the chattering would get to me if it was a dd.

Yeah I was kinda ruling out the ceramic figuring it to be overkill.. But then again I do drive the hell out of my car everyday and want something that will take the abuse :) Is it worth upgrading to the dual diaphram as well??

We don't recommend going with dual diaphragm pressure plate on the street. The T2/T3 also may not be enough for your vehicle. We would probably suggest a six puck ceramic with our extreme yellow pressure plate for your application.

What exactly is the difference regarding a ddpp?? And why is it no good for street??

It requires double the foot pressure of a stock clutch. This places an enormous amount of stress on the clutch cable and other components. It could be very dangerous if your clutch cable snaps on the street.

If you do decide to go with the dual diaphragm plate you can always just lengthen the release lever and you can make it feel like a TIII plate again. You still have to higher risk of snapping a cable though. If you want a badass disc go with the Rev-Lok,its actually very streetable and will hold almost anything thrown at it:thumb:
