    How much torque do you need to hold? ACT HD/SS is a good one if you're not over 240 lbft at the wheels. The B16 and GSR clutches should be the same.

    go for teh stage 2 ACT clutch it feels normal and should hold unless you have a crazy setup, but then you shouldn't be asking this question

    Actually, ACT uses exedy "cores". Exedy is good, ACT is better in a street car.

    HD/SS is what you want, XT/SS if you're making gobs of torque
