iminhell FWIW,
I'm on a stock replacement Sach's clutch and it doesn't slip, much. Roll on throttle and it's just fine. I can launch most of the time and it grabs. The only time I've had it slip is if I really get traction or launching in 2nd.

So I'd say there's no reason to get anything but stock for anything N/A.

zetecDon Most stock clutches can handle any bolt ons that you throw at it. So I would use either clutch that you have listed and you should be fine. But for my preferences, I would use the Sachs.

seventystangfan I am interested as well. I'm looking at making many of the same modifications and wonder what would be best.

Clutch question

I am going to be replacing the clutch on my ZX3, and was wondering what would be a better oem replacement. Sachs, or Exedy? I have an SVT header, 2.5 stealth exhaust, soon to have ORP, and have cold air intake. I also plan to have a tune done at FSwerks soon, so I need one that will hold more than stock HP. Not sure what the factory clutch can hold, but mine has 120k on it now, and is slipping a lot. Not interested In a $350 clutch masters or anything. I can get the other two each for under $175 shipped on rock auto
