Nice combo, I'm glad you reported your pricing. It helps guys like me put things into perspective. I always track the price of everything I buy for my car, well except for oil and little stuff. It's just nice to know what you've put into it, and to keep a running list of everything you've done.

Thanks,

The clutch plate is a Fiber Carbon with the spring hub. It cost $140 and the dual spring p/p was $235. The flywheel is the 8.5" flat non-intercooled unit off my B21FT. It is lighter than the stepped flywheel of the intercooled cars, and with the clamping force of the dual spring p/p, the clutch package works great. I have the t-5z, which with its higher gears puts lots of strain on the clutch. The single spring plate would not hold when first installed. Clutchnet was righteous enough to replace the single with the dual spring p/p. The price for the p/p may be different because the price I originally paid was for a single spring p/p. Hope this info helps. Good Luck!
