Clutches and Flywheels

Guys,

my twin plate clutch isn't coping well with 450HP, does anyone have any suggestions for a streetable clutch option?
Is the standard cleveland flywheel up to coping with 450HP and 6500 rpm?
Thanks in advance.

Re: Clutches and Flywheels

I should be able to comment on how my Yella Terra flywheel and 5 puck, brass button, sprung centre clutch copes behind my new motor in the next couple of days.... and how streetable it is. Apparently you can get a 10 puck version now thats more streetable.
My US trip got postponed till feb, so i get to finish playing with my CHI heads :D

Re: Clutches and Flywheels

I run a Daiken 11inch Heavy Duty clutch (Look in the Daiken catalogue under heavy duty F150 clutches). Never slips, has good feel. But must admit, after a while it does get a bit heavy!!!! I still run the stock ford flywheel and never have any drama's.
On last dyno run, it pulled 350hp at the tyres.

I have just put in a Extreme cushioned ceramic button clutch, it is rated to 600hp and as it is cushioned it does slip and is good on the street, i also changed to their lightened steel flywheel as it is explosion proof, the standard flywheel is not
Standard flywheel weighs 12 kilo, extreme weighs 7 kilo.
All up with clutch flywheel and pressure plate it cost just under $1000, see link for more info:

Maybe i should get a clear perspects bellhousing, the clutch colour matches my car hehe.

Re: Clutches and Flywheels

I have got the same clutch as falcon coupe but with yella terra fly wheel . This seemed to be the best set up for the best price I could find.

Re: Clutches and Flywheels

Now that's a good lookin' clutch!

Don't forget good ARP bolts too (as pictured).

OK, well, its a grabby bastard, but works well, I'd say it behaves no worse than the factory twin plate clutch that was in my dads Alfa GTV6.... its best either *really* pussy-footed or dropped... not much middle ground.
Mine will probably behave much better with a shorter diff in it though, Its a Luk centre by the way.
Yep. Invest in the ARP bolt kits... shearing bolts on flywheels and clutches kinda sucks, but not nearly as much as a stocky cast flywheel chunk taking your feet off.... As soon as I decided to go for some HP i put the stock fly in the corner of the shed... might make a bbq hotplate out of it....
