hello campers,

i want to put my manual conversion in VERY soon.

i have a complete conversion, but the clutch is stuffed.

i want it to take some punishment, so stockish is out of the question, but then again i dont want to spent heaps. i dont want it fitted im just after the part.

thanks,
Rushed.

i have an extreem clutch in my eb. i think it was the one under a button. mabey it was heavy duty or street race,, anyway it has held up very well over the past 2 years. paid about 360 from ABS in airport west. but if you really want to punnish it i suggest and 'cushion' button, same as a button clutch but not quite as harsh on the street

Im quite happy with the Stock XR6 replacement provided by PBR
has a little better clamping than the stock i6. but minimal pressure on the pedal box/firewall.

I had a RPM 1 tonne clutch in my ute and well... they both feel the same.

I might be an idiot, but i decided on the XR replacement at the cost of $250ish, as I didn't need a brass button 3 puck clutch for the mildly weak T5 =P

not sure if the xr6 and a heavy duty PBR clutch are the same, but i had a H/D in my car and pulled it out after 4 monts because it was slipping a bit, it looked like it was 5 years old, personally was not happy with it at all.
