What clutch...
Monday, July 21, 2014 7:02 PM
Im starting to collect parts to a trans overhaul...

It seems like LUK is the one to go with from what ive read. Does that still hold true? Im supercharged, and dont really do any racing to speak of.

So.....what should I go with...stock luk or the act hybrid

I know a couple people have had problems with KY, but I highly recommend them. I love mine and others I know with them do also.

I ran the luk stock replacement for a long time with no issues. I think Kyle's running the same thing with his tvs setup and hasn't had a problem. The only upgraded option for the eco that I haven't seen at least one complaint about is the ld9 act 6 puck sprung clutch disk with a stock replacement eco pressure plate.

I bought my cav with ~43k on it and bone stock. It is now up to ~104k. I have never changed the clutch and it still grabs fine. I dont know if the clutch was ever changed before i owned it.

Stay away from Spec clutches also. I had 2 of them that were trash and would never get one again. I love my clutchmasters clutch, no chatter and takes abuse been in the car for 45k ish miles.

I have an LUK replacement that shockingly has been holding. It just gets mad if i start at 2k in 4th and load it hard like that under boost. If i shift at 6500+ in any gear it holds fine. I never push the car in 5th though ( I did once, but it was brief and the clutch kept up).

I have like 20k on this clutch and no complaints at all. I hope to put down a number close to 400wtq (a guy can hope!) and it doesnt seem to mind.

If I had to do it again, I would probably go with a spec 4. If I shred this one I will probably get a 4.

This is on an LN2, and from what I remember the disc is like 1/4" smaller in diameter than the DOHC clutches. Not sure it makes a huge difference.

So basically you buy a LUK replacement and then use this disc instead or is there a cheaper way to get this setup?

Or do you even think its worth it considering im just supercharged?

So... I was unaware of this hybrid clutch setup. What an awesome idea. Anyone ever had any issues with this setup? I am doing a clutch job on my Eco and was not sure what I wanted to do.


You drive a cavalier? Why yes... yes I do.

Anyone have the part number for the LUK pressure plate? Amazon has the ACT disk for like $170... not bad. What kind of power are you guys running using this setup?

You can buy a replacement pressure plate from gmpartsdirect.com for 100 bucks.
