depends on your setup. what are the specs on your car? you dont want a 4 puck if your only making 135 at the wheels.

If its a sprung clutch, you should be ok. A bit overkill, but you should be ok.

Now if its a straight unsprung clutch... you might not like it being your DD car.

I wouldnt recommend using that clutch for DD, nor would I recommend the xs power crap. They are stealing XS Engineerings name to make a buck for themselves. Its sad, but it gives XS Engineering a bad name, even though its not them.

I'd read up on a few of the turbo write-ups we have here, or over at KA-T.org.
