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

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

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.

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.
