This is for All you ACT users Beware!!!!

had this ACT Extreme Clutch on my 98 prelude.
Making 310HP with 317 pounds of torque.

Dont know what the heck happen but it just made me loss confidence in ACT. I will never buy an ACT clutch again..

Re: This is for All you ACT users Beware!!!!

Well if it was an Xtreme ACT pressure plate the lowest torque rating is 386 ft/lbs if he was using the solid clutch disk type. If they were the puck type it boosts to 494 ft/lbs. If that number you posted is correct and I am assuming it is wheel horse power. Figure 15-20% drivetrain loss and your at about 380 at the flywheel, which I am assuming ACT is taking their torque readings since that is where the clutch is mounted but i dont know for sure. If it was the solid disk type you might have bought a pressure plate that was just too close to its operating thershold, not necessarily a manufacturing defect.
