Hey guys! Just need a lil bit of your help. Im planning on replacing my clutch. I've gotten several quotes on labor and right now the best deal I can find is $300 ( includes resurfacing the flywheel ) now im wondering about the clutch itself..What do you folks recommend? I take the car to the strip maybe once a week but this is my daily driver. My mods consists of CAI,HDR,EXH, and planning ECU and cams and maybe pulleys. So basically something strong,streetable,long lasting, and cheap...asking for alot aren't I...but yeah thanks guys

Damn yer gonna need something stout if you go to the strip nearly every week


Basically for daily drivers there are two option, the JWT clutch or the ACT clutch. I first looked for the ACT but no one anywhere in the country had one in stock for our cars so I ended up getting the JWT setup. They used to just make a pressure plate, they now make a disc as well. It cost $293. Pedal pressure is LIGHTER than stock. Grabs harder too. I think the ACT is harder than stock peddle pressure. If you find the right place the ACT street/strip setup should run you like $320 or something I think.

Don't forget Centerforce. I've had one in my car for over two years (50K+ miles, 25-30 drag strip passes, tons of Pro Solo autocross launches, tons of normal autocross runs, 8 hours or so on road courses).

Whatever you do, make sure you buy the right clutch for your application! My brother races Sentra SE-R's in Iowa, and he has two SE-R's- a 98 and a 91-the 98 has an ACT four-puck clutch and he hates it for street driving! It is probably one of the most "violent" shifting clutches I've ever felt-definitely not a streetable option. His 91 however, has a centerforce gold series, and he's quite satisfied with it(and he runs 100+ HP NOS staged kit on it!). I can try and get ahold of him to find out what he paid for the clutch....I think it was around the same price you quoted for the shop you were looking at.

Here is this listing in ebay if you are interested. This is a new, not rebuilt, Daiken (Japanese) clutch kit. Includes clutch disc, pressure plate and throw out bearing. It fits all 1991-1996 Infiniti G20, 1991-1994 Sentra Se-R (SR20DE motor) and the 1991-1993 NX2000. Original equipment quality. List price is over $200.00. Why buy rebuilt when you can have new for this price? I own an import parts store. Check my other auctions for more great deals on parts. Please email me if you have any questions or would like me to list a particular part. Buyer pays actual shipping. Michigan residents will be charged sales tax. We accept major credit cards, Paypal, money order and personal check(ship when clears).

I don't know if this will help you or not, but they have a brand-new J-Spec clutch(?) on Ebay still wrapped and in the box for 140$(at least that's the starting bid, but there's been no bids)That's with the clutch,pressure plate, throwout bearing and I think a flywheel(new also?)

Thanks for all the replies guys! I really appreciate all the help...I did a little more research and it seems many of our Se-R bretheren went with the Act Street/Strip setup and they all love it..so i'll be checking into that..but once again thanks you guys!

Great to hear you've come to a decision....I just brought up the ACT 4 puck one to issustrate that you can indeed have TOO MUCH clutch. This is not even close to being a street/strip clutch-different clutch altogether, so I'm not trying to put down all you ACT fans

I reccomend the ACT Street Strip disk. I have one sitting in a box here hehe. It's gonna go in my car once my flywheel gets in.

E-mail me and I can help you out.
