Question Stage 2 or Stage 1 clutch?

I'm having difficulty trying to decide what clutch to put in my 89 240SX with the SR20DET swap. I've been looking around, and I'm not sure if I should get a high performance ceramic racing clutch, (which is what im being told to get) or an organic stage 1. I've been thinking Exedy, but im not sure if I should. My car, although I want it to be fast, is going to be my daily driver that i drive to work and school everyday, but that im going to mess around with every once in a while. Its got a T28 turbo, and I want something that will do the job, yet add a little extra performance. Also, are KA24 clutches compatible with the SR20DET? I'd appreciate your advice.

KA clutches are not compatible. How much power are you making? I'd probably get the stage 2, that way if I would do more work to the car the clutch could handle it.

I ran and loved the ACT 6 puck unsprung on my blacktop SR20DET.

I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Pedal feel was oem.

Grabbed a bit harder but that was also warented with the motor.

Totally happy.

Many drift events.
Lots of street miles.
