CAR : SKyline R33 Rb25det

This Winther im going from 330 HP to 500 HP, and i have already used a lot of money on new parts to get there.
Now when my clutch is out, i can see that it wont gonna do well with the new upgrades.

I Need i new Clutch but what is the cheapest one that still have that Oem Fell on the pedal, so i can drive it in heavy traffic without busting my knee ?
It should withstand 500 HP and 550 Torque (NM)

Regards Michael From Denmark :)

Oem feel and a clutch that will take 550ftlb of torque will not be cheap

Are you sure you will be running 550ftlb of torque?
No im actually just guessing at this point.
I know i will be close to 500 HP, but i dont know about the Torque before it will be on a DYNO, and before it can get on a DYNO it needs a new clutch :rolleyes:

I just want it to be as close to OEM feel as possible, so no twin plates and so on..
Single plates with 6 pucks or full plate impact.

I have been looking myself at following :

RPC :

RPC STAGE 3 CLUTCH KIT NISSAN R32 R33 R34 SKYLINE GTST RB25 RB25DET | Tegiwa Imports

Action :

ACTION CLUTCH STAGE 3 KIT NISSAN SKYLINE GTS 1993-1998 2.5L R33 5 SPEED RWD | Tegiwa Imports

XTD :

XTD PERFORMANCE STAGE 3 CLUTCH RB20DET RB25DET SKYLINE | eBay

ACT :

Anybody got any experience with one of those clutches or any other brand i can use?
I Dont know how many HP / NM these clutches can withstand, anybody got any ideas??

Ive heard a nismo twin plate coppermix is very close to OEM when using it.

On my rb30/25 I have act 6 puck with sprung centre and extreme pressure plate and its much heavier than the oem was. I like it and it holds very well. Its streetable but wouldnt enjoy sitting in a bad traffic with it (we dont have bad traffic here where I live:D )

OEM pedal feel with big power/tq rate doesnt come cheap.

Ive heard NPC do good clutches too so you should check them out.

I've over 700bhp with 550ftlb of torque and running a hks gd pro triple plate which is driveable with

I'd avoid single plates to be honest, had a few xtd and act 6puk clutches over the years and they were very heavy on the pedal and operated like an on off switch!!!

As said above the coppermix gets good reviews but they aren't exactly cheap

To get a stock feel on a cheaper heavy duty single plate or even some twin plates you are going to have to do some modifications to the clutch fork and add some spacers to the slave cylinder. You could also upgrade your slave to a Nismo unit or one of similar specification. The Fork arm would need extending to give more leverage, there are owners on here who have done this before with great success.

If you got 700 hp and 550 nm then im probably aiming to high.
Maybe it will be around 400 nm then.

Maybe i should search for a used nismo clutch, or make the modification to the clitch pedal as suggested.

Aarrgghh so many options, so many brands.
Maybe i should just buy a nissan micra ?
