Miata clutch question

Recommended Posts

I know nothing about a Miata but one of my buddies is looking to buy a new clutch and wanted a little help.  He has a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata with the stock turbo.  He says it has the "flyin miata little enchilada" upgrade and is making 200hp and 190tq.  He is only going to do spirited street driving and may bump the power up to 240hp in the near future.  

 

The two clutches he is between are:

ACT zm2-hdss

Exedy 10805

 

If you need more information or have other recommendations let me know and I will relay the messages.

 

Thanks

I have not had a miata in a decade, but on other cars have been happy with act clutches. In my subaru the life is decent, pedal feel isn't terrible and for the holding power it doesn't shutter. 

 

Get the sprung hub normal disk, not a puck style. Do not run a solid hub. 

 

Clutches are the stupidity filter for transmissions, put a mega stiff clutch in it and you will find out what i mean (and what part is weakest in the gearbox).
