Well then, I was going to say I put an Exedy in my track car and very satisfied!  What a difference from the factory clutch in the street car.  Night and day difference.

+1 withe McLeod!! Only thing that tamed my B2...keep in mind no hydronic clutch...412hp est going into 4:11's.

...but hold the phone! Tell me more about the 700hp.

bottom end, S/C, inter cooler, cam's, TB, off road pipes, e85, fuel delivery, custom tune... Am I close???

PM me if you don't want to get into it on the open forum.
