Well money permitted stage 2 for any reason over stage 1 for my use? I do plan on trying some auto x at some point.

All NA SVT I would assume Stg 1 would be plenty. I got a stg 2 cuz at the time I planned on getting the FSWerks turbo kit and wanted a clutch taht was beefier than stock but couldn't afford a stg 3 at the time. And I needed a new clutch as the stock one was shot.

Look at the torque ratings of each clutch... If I recall a stg 1 clutch has more gripping force than the svt with a tune can produce torquewise

clutches unfortunatley dont work very well on a scale system because they are rated by each manufacturer.

the cfm/clutchmaster stage 1 setup should actually hold as much power as the spec stage 2 based on material selection alone.

both should be more than sufficient for a bolt-on+tune svtf even with auto-x

(which is quite easy on the clutch given you have 1 launch and then a shift to second and you dont touch the clutch again)

about all I could say is if you get a chance before spring and could drive a car with each clutch you may prefer the feel of one over the other but other than that you wont notice any difference.

Yeah I plan on getting a second car ( either v8 or a factory Turbo car) ( miss my old 4.6 rwd lots of fun haha) and leaving Svt n/a.

Now gotta pick spec stage 1 or cfm (clutchmasters) stage 1.

Anyone on here have these or have any opinions?

This is my first owned manual, and first clutch swap, hence so many questions. So thanks for putting up with them haha.

I have no experience with svt tunes so I'm staying out of that one!

make sure to check clutch materials as well. I'm not positive if spec and clutchmasters use the same ratings etc.

for the jetta a spec stage 5 held less torque than a stage 3 clutchmasters

Im leaning towards cfm stage 1. Its comparable to southbend stg 1 and spec sty 1&2ish.

What material do I want?
