This is a Phoenix Friction Stage 3 Street Performance Clutch Kit. The kit features a Phoenix Friction high heat Ceramic spring dampened disc. It will provide up to a 60% increase over the stock engine torque capacity. At the same time, you will not notice any increase in pedal effort over the stock clutch and offers chatter-resistant lift-off for a great daily ride.

Ceramic button discs will give you the fastest shifts due to their low radial mass which reduces their overall flywheel effect and works with all flywheels, including lightweight steel and aluminum. You can expect 200% the life over original equipment woven organic linings from Ceramic buttons under normal driving conditions. These buttons will absorb the most energy of all the friction materials and is the material of choice for the highest torque applications.

A Phoenix Stage 3 Street Performance product is a direct factory fit and requires no modifications for installation.
