    Shoppin' for a new clutch for my JDM B16a SIR2, with a Y21 LSD tranny
    What would you guys recommend?

    Act......... Centerforce Dual friction?

    I remind everyone, this is only a street car.... stock internals....... with add-ons and I may run a little bit of spray from time to time.

    Thanks in advance

    i think i got my xtreme pressure plate and stage 1 clutch for $450
    grabs pretty damn hard for my combo. I would say perfect for street.

    no such thing as "stage 1" or "stage anything" for that matter
    ACT doesnt use "stages"

    check for yourself

    but yes ACT clutches are badass
    i have the AI4-XTSS (extreme pressure plate and street strip organic disc)
    very good setup for street use :thumbsup:
    if you are a pussy and cant deal with a hard clutch pedal then go with the HD (heavy duty pressure plate) its not as stiff

    My local ACT dealer is a Fucktard. Askin' way too much , plus he tells me that he has to do the install to warranty it.......... Anyways.

    I have gotten a half decent price on a Centerforce Stage 2 clutch, any people ever have a problem with this particular setup?

    Well, I finally went with the Act HDSS Set-up
    -Heavy Duty Pressure plate
    -Street Disc
    -Release bearing
    -pilot bearing

    Got my Flywheel shaved, Torqued everything to spec, didn't let anyone else drive it and it has this horrible rattle. Only when taking off. Shifting is Perfect, driving is perfect, only taking off.

    Mind you guys that it is still is in break-in period. Is This Normal?????
