Clutch upgrade

Okay so I've been looking around because I'm going to be upgrading my clutch to handle a pte 5431 and clutches are really expensive hah should I pretty much expect to pay something like $700? It's just my daily driver and I won't be taking it to the track or launching really so I was hoping to not spend a ridiculous amount of money on a clutch! Any advice on this would be awesome :thumbup:

Most upgraded turbos require a bigger and better clutch. DD or not you want it to he able to handle the power. I went with an HDSS seeing as its my DD as well. It's not quite as grabby as the full race clutches from the friends who have driven my car. So stop and go traffic isn't as bad as it could be. I'm running a stage 3r setup.

When I bought my srt the clutch started slipping really bad and I did a lot of research and my friends all said south bend.. But for some reason I ordered a clutch masters stage 1 clutch, DO NOT GET THAT! It had loud gear noises and a few days ago it totally gave out and now I can't go into any gear so I'm due for another clutch after 6k miles.. But south bend is my my next one and heard its good

Another vote for the ACT HDSS.

Feels like stock, once i adjusted the pedal height to lower the engagement. Clunks like a mofo at idle though. If you get a clutch, i recommend a modded TOB fork, OEM TOB, and brass pivot ball to round out the set.

I used the TOB ACT sent me. So noisy...

Just wanted to chime in. I'm currently running a 5431 on 23lbs. ACT has taken care of me so far. Can't go wrong with it. But the chatter does suck. Haha

It's not clutch chatter, its the transmission. It's normal. We all have it.

I also vote for an ACT 6 puck with a sprung hub. PM turbo666, he has great deals on clutch packages.

I don't really want to wrench anymore. I'd rather detail.

I'm not doubting you saying its the tranny and not the clutch. But after I installed my sprung 6 puck kit it was then I heard the chatter that goes away once the clutch pedal is pressed. what in the tranny causes this again? I never heard it with the stocker.

The weight and rotational inertia of the aftermarket clutches are different than stock and it causes the tranny to rattle a little. It's a known issue, my car has been doing it for around 80k miles, no biggee.
