I would recommend the Competition Clutch brand. It has been used by many people and in many race cars. Its a great brand clutch

triple plate withstands more torque/power capacity

aight, so your basically saying that triple plate withstands more but sucks for daily driving right?? and sorry for asking so many questions but what the difference between the number of plates and the stage ? like what does it dictate.

when choosing, just refer to torque capacity rather than 'stages' as each company will have thier own classifications.

I bought the XTD stage I clutch and pressure plate off ebay, and it was more than adequate for my modded KA24DE. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an inexpensive clutch replacement.

aight so this is what i heard from a friend. twin plate gets alot more grip then single but bites alot harder. and the stages are just the rating of torque. then how hard it is to push the pedal depends on your springs.
