What's the "best" clutch these days for VE street driving? Just want something that will hold up, not too hard to deal with.

I'm running a stock (unkown brand) slipping clutch right now - not a lot of fun w/ the VE.

I second the exedy but not the whole kit. The pressure plate on the racing stage 1 is excellent. Just make sure you use and OEM TOB and new clips. I would opt for the OEM disc as well.

neither, get JWT, Nismo, EXEDY, or ACT

Pretty much in that order to if you ask me.

Or if you are stock then just get a key value from the dealer

Are you VE? That is pretty good numbers on a DE. I can only assume you have a quality header and some serious tuning.

Your obviously not stock so I would get something with a little more bite then a KV.

i could also get a act clutch 6 puck, solid no spring. Is that over kill?
Solid no spring is a NO-NO on a street car. That thing will engage harsh enough to eventually wear out the splines on the input shaft, and could potential cause other parts to wear out prematurely as well.

Unless you are tracking the car routinely, I would stick to a marcel dampered clutch (the spring pack). I've seen full face marcel-dampered clutches hold well over 250 ft-lbs. at the wheels in an SR20-powered car...from what you said you are no where near that power level.

So, I'd go as mild as possible and still leave yourself 25% or so extra headroom in holding capacity for adding power later. The rest of the drivetrain will be happy you did.

Personally?

I have a Fidanza Flywheel (8.5lb model), JWT SR20 1 Side Metallic 215mm disc (click here) and JWT SR20 Hi-Torque Pressure Plate (click here) (click here for the combo pack).

I track my car twice a month (one weekend a month, saturday and sunday) with an extensively modded VE and its by far the best clutch setup I've EVER owned. Great for DDing while it holds up the abuse on the track. I had it apart due to me killing my 3rd gear and it was perfect when I inspected it (after a full year of DDing and 24 track days).

Also I will say that while its a JWT disk, the inner section IS an Exedy clutch (as both JWT and Nissan uses Exedy as their "OE" clutch type).

With my prior problems with quality control and ACT, I won't buy any of their products for the SR20 series any more, but thats just my opinion.
