    Default Clutch and flywheel replacement

    Hi all,

    I am coming to the brain trust to get everyone's opinion on a replacement flywheel and clutch setup. I have some mods, HPFP, 3" DP, 3" intake, changing to GTX 2867R or GT2871R, and a Cobb AP V2 with a tune by Nishan. From what I've read, the ACT setup generally lasts around 20,000kms, Excedy had a massive recall and their springs stuffed up, Clutch Masters FX400 constantly fails, and the recommended by the boys in the states is the Southbend Stage 3 endurance setup, which costs around $2,600!!!!

    Does anyone have a local alternative which is suited for our cars and will last? I am using this as a daily driver.

    It's been three years or more since I had replacement clutch (and engine and gearbox) in my BK, but I'm really happy with NPC clutch About Us - NPC - Leaders in Performance Clutches | Mansfield | QLD Australia that had installed.
    I'd suggest talking to them about your needs.

    I've had the South bend Stage 3 enduro in mine (MPS3 gen2) for almost 80,000kms and it has been faultless it felt heavy the first couple of days then it was fine, car is used as a daily , long distance and launched multiple times with full slicks at the drags with power from 2 different turbo set ups, first was a GTX3076 with a boost based methanol nozzle around 480whp, now on a Precision set up with meth port injection and over 600whp and it takes it. When i bought mine years back our dollar was higher and Edgeauto sport had a new year discount... To get them delivered now from Edge they are around $2200, you get what you pay for in the end.

    I've seen ACT's fall apart at 10,000ks, their quality is terribly inconsistent, some last 60,000.

    it depends what you plan on doing with the car, locally made some use NPC kits for circuit and street use, 2nv Industries Newcastle MPS and Mazda Service and Performance Specialist who built my engine etc has fitted and supplied the NPC to a few of his other customers and can get a price as they can make custom ones etc.

    Thanks alot guys, I have spoken to NPC and will probably go down the path of 5 puck sprung centre button clutch & solid conversion flywheel, I am aiming for 300 awkw, but daily driven, just need to get it sent down from QLD to Melb, so car will be on jacks for another week -_-.
