    Ok i understand that this is really going to be a subjective question. However can anyone tell me soemthing about what is a reall good clutch to use its going into a turbo intercooled d16z6. I keep hearing that centerforce is the best, i was just wondering if anyone could give me some feedback on what everyone else uses.
    i.e. bang for the buck? the centerforce is pretty expensive but if it is worth it i dont mind forking out the money.
    thx

    I have had a few buddy's who have had centerforce clutches and from my experience and from what i have heard about them they are not worth the money i would go another route !

    exedy is great but not sure if they make a unit for the D series, they might.


    I have also used RPSturbo clutchs

    centerforce is ok, just not for hondas. with the sohc boosted i'd think RPS, and ACT are your best bet. clutchmasters engages to hard from my experiences. my .02.

    Personally, I would go exedy myself.

    A friend recently did an exedy 6 months ago, and it hasn't seen a spec of wear since the day he put it in.

    With proper break in, an exedy, clutch masters, ACT, and centerforce have been said to be awesome in almost all conditions, but they all have also have had their downfalls.
