  • S13 ka24de what clutch to get??

    Hi,
    I need to get a new clutch for my 91 Nissan 240sx. I was planing to stick with an oem clutch because my car is basically stock and therefore I dont need an aftermarket clutch. What is the best oem clutch to buy?
    I am going to Use this car for mainly daily driving(8-10Kmiles a yr), autox (approx 12-18 a yr), hopefully 1-2 track days, and 1-2 drift events(for fun not to be competivite).
    I found an Exedy OEM replacement clutch kit for about $135 shipped.

    or

    I can go with an Autozone Clutch kit

    Which one would you guys recommend
    Are there any other better options?

    thanks in advance for the help!

    I would go with the Exedy. I am running one now with a built ka24e with no problems. The Autozone ones we have installed at work have been hit or miss, but whatever you do dont buy centerforce they are junk.

        I already had a thread about this LOL just a few lines down you could have seen the thread

        None the less I went with KA24DE XTD 3rd stage clutch with cerametallic 3puck disk, crappy pressureplate and their chromoly flywheel. Honestly I can drive the car very agressively, it's gotten better as it got broken in, very responsive alongside the 1piece alum driveshaft, however, its **** quality, hit or miss with this stuff. I daily it, I'm fine, but... not for everyone, I like everything lightweight yaay go go

        If I were to do it again I may have gone with an Exedy stage 2 or something... Stick with exedy as stated.

          Yup.

          Only clutches I will recommend for anyone is either Carbonetic clutches, or Exedy clutches.

          ORC and OS Giken ones are good too, but Exedy has an office, a huge one, here in the US in Michigan, and Carbonetic has one in CA, so why mess with the other JDM brands if they're around the same price as Exedy?

              My first clutch when I turbo'd was an ACT HDSS, which is a heavy duty pressure plate and an Organic copper strand clutch disk. It worked flawlessly up to about 400ft/lbs of torque. After that, with the slightest amount of heat, it would slip.

              With my driving style, I would buy something cerametallic at the minimum. I drive my car at the limit all the time, so I like something that is forgiving with heat. For just about everyone else, I think on a stock car, the Exedy replacement should be fine.

              You must understand that with a stock KA and good tires, launches all the time would be necessary, as well as flat shifting, and downshifting into RPM ranges past redline.

                I am going to stick with Exedy for sure, I want to get the Stage 2 but after look at the SCCA Solo rules I think that would put me in Street Prepared? , I planing on running in STX so I will probably stick with the Exedy OEM replacement.

                  man SCCA is retarded sometimes. Change classes based on a stock sized clutch but just with more clamping force? LAME

                      If you get a new clutch kit from Napa it will most likely be an Exedy. All the ones I've gotten in the past were.

                          Whats wrong with the ACT HD pedal pressure? I like the pedal pressure, but with the stock SR disk in there it won't hold over 16 psi now. A little bit of naughty 19-20 psi and E85 made it slip in 4th gear and it has never held over about 16 psi since then.

                            My Exedy has treated me well, and I slap it around a little after drinking.

                              it maybe ok for some not me. the act hd with sprung 6 spuck is engagement is a mother ****er, it'll hold anything but it can not be slipped without lots of time. spec one i've had for years, i can slip it easily, pedal is great. i know how ****ty spec rumors are but if i had too. out of fear for not knowing what i'd get i'd buy the spec again. or maybe that nismo clutch.

                              i'm kinda contradicting myself. cause most of act **** is exedy so **** exedy too, hahah. but we're talking about a stock clutch for the op
