How much HP and Torque is the oem clutch rated to handle for a 1988 crx dx
It might hold 175hp, but it sure as hell won't hold 175lbft.
thanks.. just want to know if i can still use the oem clutch for the d16z6 swap..
Still debating on if i should get something that can handle more.
I think i'll stick with OEM cause if I turbo I am going to want a different tranny
which btw can anyone tell me if the differential from an auto 1993 civic ex tranny can be put in my manual 88 crx dx tranny
I guess i am good till i turbo..
lol, 175 ft lbs on a D is a chore anyway. Maybe 150 I still don't know the D's well.
But I don't think the differential will fit either. Of course I'm probably wrong because I still don't know shit about the D's. I would just assume no because the Auto has to have a lot different internals than the 5 speed.
175ft/lbs might be hard on a d16, but 175HP is not hard with a turbo I am going to go with the 175 HP rating cause it is a small clutch 997LB pressure clutch too so it could use more grip
175lbft is easy to get on a D with a turbo. Most clutches are rated by the torque value they can hold, not power level. An OEM strength clutch won't hold turbo torque levels for very long- trust me.
No clue on the auto -> manual diff swap.
yea BBKA makes 203 ftlbs with his z6.
yes it can be done.
If your thinking about picking up a clutch. I'd say go with an Exedy, they are cheap, good and reliable clutches. Then you can pick the one which can suit your needs. I believe mine is rated at 275 or something, but it's for a B.
that engine swap is the one im doing on an si and it said use si trans an clutch
I would just buy a performance clutch. Its hell of a lot easier to put in a clutch when you are doing an engine swap, than risking it with a stock clutch and having to replace it several months later.
