I will never recommend Excedy to anyone ever again, STEER CLEAR! After purchasing one and having my mechanic installing it (with a big problem after it was installed), he took it out again and found it was acutally a "luke" clutch. Apparently Excedy have a very bad repuation for using other brands of clutches and just putting it in their packaging.

If my mechanic had told me before he had put it back in i would have takin it straight back to the f**kheads and abused the f**k out of them.

Get an extreme clutch. http://www.xtremeclutch.com.au/

I am looking at either one of these or the PBR ones that are mentioned in the thread I linked to, anyone had any expearance with both, I am liking the value(or percieved value) of the PBR(250 bucks or so vs 350+ for the xtreame).
